Repromeda is located in Brno, the second largest city in the Czech Republic. The clinic is only 15 minutes away from the city centre when travelling by car, taxi or public transport. Thanks to its proximity to the city centre it will be easy to get to and from, as well as allowing you to experience the city while you are there. If you fly to the country you will have your pick of which airport to fly to as Brno has an airport of its own, as well as being 140 km from Bratislava airport, 190 km from Vienna airport, and 220 km from the airport in Prague. If you happen to be undergoing egg donation treatment and pick one of the more advanced packages you will have airport pick-up included in the cost, so there will be one less thing for you to think about.

Being in the Czech Republic, Brno has a style of architecture that is both beautiful to look at but functional at the same time. Whilst it is the second largest city in the country it is something of an undiscovered gem as tourists tend to prefer to visit cities such as Prague and Vienna. Thanks to this you will have a much easier time walking around and visiting places in the city, because there won’t be tourists everywhere. This makes it a perfect place to go for your treatment, as there are some beautiful places to visit, such as the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul, the Spilberk Castle, caves, museums and more. If you choose to combine your treatment with a sightseeing tour of the city you are sure to have a wonderful time.
