What it’s about

Join us in celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Gregor Johann Mendel!

In 2022 you can look forward to a series of first-rate festivals, exhibitions and talks with a popular and educational program on the topic of genetics and its founder, plus much more. At the Augustinian Abbey in Staré Brno we’ll be unveiling a statue of the father of genetics and will also be restoring Mendel’s experimental greenhouse.

Take a walk in the footsteps of Mendel now. View your own DNA in the Mendel Box mobile exhibit and visit places associated with the life of this prominent scientist from Brno.

Events to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of G. J. Mendel can also be found on the website

Minigrants “Mendel 2022”

The Celebration project comes with a call for all creative personalities, entrepreneurs, residents of Brno, associations, parties and individuals. We believe that there are definitely a number of other topics to be suggested by you, the inhabitants of the city of Brno.

We want and expect creative and original themes that will bring content that we are currently missing. It may be gastronomy, humour, street art, objects, events and publications or their translations, anything that will be enriching and even unexpected for all residents and visitors. The theme must have a clear connection to the anniversary of G. J. Mendel’s birth and should be seen or heard.
