Brno - Lesná

About the location
Phenomenon Lesná
ACCESSIBILITY AND FACILITIES
Until 1969, the suburb of Lesná was a part of Královo Pole, Husovice and Obřany. The apartment blocks that now make up a significant part of Lesná were constructed on a former military training ground and were built to provide housing for 20,000 residents of Brno.

At that time, the project designers were inspired by the Scandinavian style. It is for this reason that Lesná is thought to be one of the most attractive and well-designed housing estates in the Czech Republic. Between the individual apartment blocks there is a lot of greenery and grass fields that provide a lot of space for relaxation.

The distance between the apartment blocks is very substantial, which means that the well-developed trees and greenery enables residents to maintain their privacy and not feel like they are living on a housing estate.
 
About the location

Although most of Lesná consists of the housing estate, there are other buildings. The housing estate itself stands on the periphery of the whole area, as defined by the streets Okružní and Seifertova. Behind these streets you will find the Diviš district to the southwest, which was built on the steep hill after 1925, and which consists mainly of family houses on the streets Čekanková, Kosatcová, Liliová and Zvonková, and the district formerly known as Čtvrť Nade mlýnem to the southeast, consisting of the streets Holubova, Soběšická, Studená and Vyhlídka.

At the east end of Lesná, on the street Seifertova, there are family houses, which have been there since the 1970’s, and several apartment blocks that make up the Barvy housing estate. The northeast part of Lesná is also characterised by family houses on the streets Kupkova, Plachtova, Šalounova and Španielova.

The newest part of the Lesná lies to the north and consists of apartment complexes in the city districts of Majdalenky (completed in 2000) and Nové Majdalenky (completed in 2010). Lesná currently covers an area of 2.58 km2 and is home to over 16,000 people. It is part of the municipal district Brno-sever.

Phenomenon Lesná
The residents of Lesná have three supermarkets to choose from: Billa in the northern area near the Majdalenky apartment complex, and Albert and Lidl in the southern area.

Lesná is also easily accessible by public transport. Tram lines 9 and 11 lead almost into the centre of the suburb, with an extension planned for line 5 from the Štefánik district to the current Čertova Rokle loop.

Bus lines 44, 84 and 53 (which runs during rush hours) run through the area, as does the N92 night bus line (Halasovo náměstí - Haškova - Blažkova - Štefánikova čtvrt - Hlavní nádraží) that runs to the main train station, where you can catch a connection. Since 15th December 2006, Lesná has its own train station (Lesná – nádraží), where the S3 of the South Moravian Integrated Public Transport System stops. If the train is not delayed, it is the quickest possible route to the main train station in Brno.
