Prague (Praha) - The City of One Hundred Towers and Spires is situated in the heart of Europe, in the valley of the Vltava river and dominated by the castle perched on the Western bluffs. The city's golden age commenced when Charles IV of Bohemia was elected Holy Roman Emperor in 1346. Visitors are drawn to the 'fairy tale' aspect of the city of its vibrant mixture of styles. Prague is unquestionably a city that is best explored on foot - the entire centre has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Gothic churches rub shoulders with Cubist, Functionalist and ultra-modern buildings, classical music intermingles with jazz and rock, monumental statues sit next to abstract works. Certainly, the visitors sooner or later are getting tired so it is wise to stick to beer in one of the numerous famous Prague pubs in warm July days.
We look forward to seeing our old and new friends in Prague. You are kindly invited to participate in the 16th IFAC World Congress in the Czech Republic.
