Can anyone who lives in Brno give me their thoughts about Masaryk University? I am trying to decide where to spend a semester abroad in Fall 2008 and Masaryk is one of my options. I don't know anything about the area. I've read the University's website but I'd like an unbiased opinion. Another option is the Anglo-American College in Prague. It seems much smaller (definitely newer) - probably much less prestigious than Masaryk.
Is it pretty easy to get from Brno to western Europe? I have a friend living in Geneva and I'd like to go on as many weekend trips around western and eastern Europe as I can while I'm living there for 4 months.
