For parking of buses from all directions, a closed part of the D1 highway will be used between Brno and Vyškov, namely between EXIT 196 and EXIT 203. Buses from both crossroads (southern "Brno-jih" and eastern "Brno-východ"), directions from Prague and Bratislava or Olomouc, will be directed to go there.
