Jan Hus day (July 6)

Public holiday on July 6 called Jan Hus Day in the Czech Republic. 
This state holiday commemorates the martyrdom of Jan Hus.
Jan Hus was a Czech priest, religious reformer and university professor who is best known for his advocacy of church reforms during the early 15th century. 
Jan Hus Day is celebrated annually on 6 July in memory of his death.
His death spiked the Hussite wars, in which his followers fought against the Roman Catholic Church.


Part of the services of our centre will move to a new address during December.

The Centre for Foreigners JMK will be closed for visits from 15.12 until 19.12. If you will need to contact our infocentre during these days, you can write to cizincijmk@jmk.cz or call +420 734 510 213.

The Adaptation-integration courses of 16.12 will take place without change at our former address.

If your Czech language course would change addresses, you will get information from your teacher.

Legal and social consultations will not be available from 15.12.2022 until 16.1.2023 in the offices at Mezírka 1, but in offices of our partners OPU and Diecézní Charita Brno. We will inform you of the place of consultation when you reserve a meeting.

Our infocentre will be at the new address Kounicova 13 from 20.12. It will only take you 3 additional minutes to get there.
