The workshop venue is the modern hotel Meritum located on the western part of the Prague city. It is a quiet district of Prague 6, Ruzyne between the city center and near the International Václav Havel Prague Airport. The venue is easily accessible for passengers traveling by plane or car. The hotel Meritum is invalid friendly. All hotel rooms have their own shower, WC, refrigerator, TV + Sat, and wi-fi.
The hotel includes the stylish Restaurant “U Rychtare”, located in the monumentally protected object of “Kubr farm” from the 16th century, the oldest rural homestead in Prague. We recommend staying there a few days before or after the workshop in Prague. The hotel reservation could be done for the dates October 7– 15, 2017. The sight-seeing programs for interested participants and accompanying persons will be organized in Prague. Regarding to the fact that Prague is a much frequented tourist center and the capacity of hotels is limited, all participants are asked to send their accommodation requests as soon as possible. All rooms will be allocated on a ﬁrst come, ﬁrst served basis.
Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is a city with over a thousand-year history, established and developed at the intersection of strategic routes connecting key centers on the European continent. Its leading position and favorable climate led to the successful development of trade, arts and crafts, scientiﬁc research and knowledge. The town is one of the most important historical cities of Europe. The past centuries have left their mark here primarily in art and architecture. Through the course of time Prague has gained a reputation as a major European center of culture, education and humanism. An area of more than 8 sq. km registered in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register. Prague is also a modern European metropolis full of energy, music, and art. It’s a city of contrasts: Serene green isles in the river and peaceful parks draping the city’s seven hills are just steps away from the architectural treasures and bustling street life of the city center. It’s a place where different architectural styles stand cheek by jowl, creating an atmosphere that’s both intimate and romantic, and quite impossible to forget once seen.
