Prague, ‘the golden
city’, has been the political, cultural, and
economic center of the Czech state for over 1100 years.
It is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful
cities in Europe and belongs to one of the world’s
most popular tourist destinations.
Centuries of construction gave rise
to of the world’s
most pristine and varied collections of architecture,
from Art Nouveau to Baroque, Renaissance, Cubist, Gothic,
Neo-Classical and Ultra-modern. Those architectural
styles mingle and intertwine here and their symbiosis
creates the city’s unique atmosphere. The historic
center was included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage
Sites in 1992. Some of its outstanding sights are:
Old Town with its Old Town Square, the Astronomical
Clock, the picturesque Charles Bridge and Prague Castle.
The Prague Marriott hotel
is conveniently located in the heart of the city, just
a few steps away from the Old Town Square and Prague’s
major tourist attractions.
The PIME 2008 Conference venue will
be located on the first floor. A Business centre will
provide participants all extra help needed; high speed
internet access is available in all conference rooms
and public areas.
