Brno is a city in Moravia, relatively close to Czechia's borders with Austria and Slovakia. It is the country's second largest city after Prague and the largest city of Moravia. Brno was the capital of Moravia between 1641 and 1948. Nowadays, Moravia no longer exists as an administrative entity and therefore it does not have an official capital. It does, however, exist as one of the three historic Czech lands (besides Bohemia and Czech Silesia) and Brno can be considered its traditional capital.
