Abstract (in english)
   The paper deals with dislocation of universities and their infrastructural equipment on the territory of Brno. It observes interactions of the mentioned activities with public transport, concentration of students and their impact on the urban life. Universities, faculty hospitals, libraries and similar facilities are among the largest employees in the region. They are of a big importance for the forming of new metropolitan functions in the open European space. They create the potential of the knowledge economy, high-tech productions and services of the highest level. Eighty thousands of university students bring an intensive activity first of all to the inner city. The development of university and research functions is the best possibility how to emphasize the place of Brno on the map of Europe. On the other side, these modern functions are developed on the territory of the city with the medieval core and valuable urban structure, the spirit of them should be kept.
