Dear Friends of Mathematics,
we would like to inform you that the beginning of the new academic year also means the beginning of mathematical trips! These are tourist trips for all students and employees of Department of Mathematics and Statistics where you can get to know the surroundings of Brno and talk about mathematics as well as about anything else.
The initial mathematical trip will take place on Saturday 24th of September, 2016. You are hereby cordially invited.
Meet at 09:30 at the endstation of tram no. 1 in Řečkovice. Our plan is a 20 km hike along tourist roads, partly rocky ground, partly following roadways, back to the starting point in Řečkovice.
More detailed description: starting in Řečkovice we visit Nature park Baba and cross it to reach Kuřim.  Leaving Kuřim we get to Babí lom and its lookout tower. Then we follow the tourist red road to Lelekovice and Mokrá Hora, then back to Řečkovice. You can end the hike in Kuřim (9 km) where you can get a train or a bus to Brno.
Take food for the whole day with you.  Remark (about the origin):
The idea of mathematical trips is inspired by "mathematical trips" founded by Otakar Borůvka, famous mathematician of Brno and professor of Masaryk University. These trips were organized by mathematicians of Masaryk University and Comenius University in Bratislava in 1940s to 1980s.
Looking forward to see you soon,
Jan Slovák, Director of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics Jana Bartoňová, Main organizer Jonatan Kolegar, Trip consultant
