Social Programme

PIME Gala Dinner

The PIME Gala Dinner will take place on Monday 11 of February 2008, 20.00h, at the Slovansky Dum.

Slovansky Dum (the Slavic House) was created from two medieval buildings most likely founded during the first expansion of the city. The first mention of the structure dates back to 1381 when it was owned by a cheese producer and vendor Nicolas Enderlin. In the course of the following centuries, the facility had dozens of owners from the ranks of New Town tradesmen and craftsmen, knights, noblemen, barons, and counts.

The structure underwent an extensive reconstruction only at the end of the seventeenth century when it was acquired by Jan Bartolomej baron Vernier de Rougemont, Imperial Master Engraver, and Governor of Lipnice and Svetlá nad Sázavou, who transformed the complex into a Baroque palace with a geometrically arranged French garden that extends as far as Jindrišská Street and connected the complex to municipal water mains.

Slovansky Dum is located in the center of Prague at walking distance to the conference hotel.


Conference Dinner is organised thanks to the contribution of CEZ

Guided Tour of the Municipal House

Before the conference dinner we would like to invite participants to a tour of the Municipal House – the Art-Noveau Jewel of Prague. Its heterogeneous halls are decorated with a unique collection of art. A part of the tour is also Smetana Hall – a famous concert hall with a seating capacity of 1200 seats and original organ from the high art-nouveau period. The Mayor’s Hall, decorated by Alfons Mucha is an unforgettable part of the tour. Mucha’s work here is uniquely preserved as a whole.

Interested delegates are invited to meet at 19.00 in front of the Municipal House. After the tour the group will walk to Slovansky Dum which is conveniently located opposite the street.

Accompanying people are welcome to attend the Gala Dinner at an additional fee.
The Gala Dinner is included in the registration fee.
