CONGRESS CENTRES OUTSIDE PRAGUE
Congress Centres outside of the Capital Brno,
the most significant town of Moravia (Moravia - in the historical context
and administration-wise next to Bohemia the second part of the existing Czech
Republic), characterised by the silhouette of the Spilberk fortress, is a renowned
town of fairs with the exhibition ground of 193,000 square m (of which 101,000
square meters are made up of closed pavilions). Hradec Kralove, the eastern
Bohemia metropolis, offers the exquisitely fitted Addis centre with a total
capacity of 3,000 persons. Hradec Kralove offers several quality hotels. Often,
the chateau is used for big events of social character and also has the eldest
steeplechase course in the Czech Republic in the near-by town, Pardubice.
Western-Bohemian Plzen (Pilsen) is an industrial town with a brewing
tradition similar to southern-Bohemian CeskeBudejovice.
The historic town Olomouc, the
erstwhile seat of archbishops, or the mining town Ostrava are at the
same time the industrial centres of Moravia. The Ostrava congress complex, Atom,
is well prepared for holding assorted events. Not only large town agglomerations
can serve as venues of large congresses and fairs. Such centres are available
in the Czech Republic also in the midst of nature - poetic historical little
towns, former monasteries, Middle-Ages castles or romantic chateaux. Such sites
with large hotel complexes are located for instance in Sumava, Cesky Les
and Krkonose (all of them mountain ranges).
