Prague is a charming city situated in the very heart of Europe. It has a rich history, magnificent architecture (known as the city of „hundred spires“) and a unique culture influenced by various styles that have appeared over the centuries. The city has hosted or has been a „beloved“ place for famous personalities like J. Kepler, W. A. Mozart, R. Descartes, P. I. Tchaikovsky, A. Einstein, F. Kafka and many others. Prague was also birthplace of five Nobel laureates – the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1959 was awarded to Jaroslav Heyrovsky for his discovery and development of polarograpic methods and in 1947 the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Carl and Gerty Cori.
Looking forward to seeing you in Prague.
