Visit of the National Technical Library
The visit is scheduled on Wednesday 25 May at 18 hrs. Those interested will be guided by members of the library public relations department through the building that opened on 09/09/09.
The Conference dinner is scheduled on Thursday evening. It will take place in "Obecní dům" ("Municipal House") . We will go to the dinner venue by historical tram through the historical city centre, so the travel will be connected with quite unique sightseeing experience. The cost is included in the Conference fee.
With a small push from some of you we took courage to arrange a post-conference excursion "off the tourist beaten track" to Southern Bohemia.
Departure Friday afternoon after the conclusion of the conference, trip to Telc on the border of Bohemia and Moravia, overnight there. On Saturday morning visit the Telc castle and stroll the town. By noon depart for another picturesque small town Slavonice (half an hour), have a lunch there, walk the town. In the afternoon proceed to have a tour of another castle-fortress Landštejn overlooking borders of Bohemia, Moravia and Austria. Travel through a picturesque landscape to Trebon, arrival by late afternoon. Trebon is a pleasant town, seat of the last Rosenbergs (in 16th century), nowadays a spa, with huge ponds and meadows and woods... and yes, a very good local beer. Sunday morning have a stroll there on the dyke of the pond called World and later depart for Prague - directly to the airport for those in a hurry and to the downtown for the rest. Sure, everything can be adapted to your wishes...
Number of participants is limited to 30 people. Those who subscribe to the post conference excursion will be contacted by the organising commmittee with further information and asked to provide an advance payment.
