Accommodation and Logistics

Pr honice, a nice village at the south-east margin of Prague, is an attractive place with
an old chateau and a large park, and represents a tourist centre, with great tradition in
botany and ornamental plant gardening, with a number of hotels, restaurants, shopping
centres etc.
     The Workshop takes place in the Club Hall (= Klubovna) of Institute of
Ornamental Plant Breeding, Pruhonice. Accommodation is available within five minutes'
walk from the Club Hall.
     The Pruhonice Chateau harbours Institute of Botany, Academy of Sciences, and
Botanical Section of National Museum (herbarium PR); it is possible to arrange
individual studies in the herbarium, as well as in the herbarium of Charles University,
Prague (PRC), each of the herbaria amounting to about two milion specimens.

Pruhonice is easily reached from Prague centre (bus, cab - about 20 min.). Prices of a
single/double room (incl. breakfast) do not exceed USD 45/65, but may be considerably
lower. Orders for accommodation on the application form should be sent to the
