Masaryk University


In 1891 T. G. Masaryk introduces a motion at the Imperial Council in Vienna calling for the establishment of a second Czech university in Moravia. Twenty years later, he submits a petition to the Council in support of the founding of a university in Brno.

An act unanimously adopted on 28 January 1919 approves the establishment of the university in Brno along with its four founding faculties.
