Wednesday, April 10, 19:30, Břevnovský klášter
The ETAPS banquet will be held on Wednesday in Břevnov Monastery. The monastery was founded 993 AD by Boleslav II and Bishop Adalbert. The Benedictine complex’s current appearance, dating back to 1708 – 1745, is an example of High Baroque style. The monastery gardens are open to all and visitors may also take a guided tour. The Břevnov Monastery is also known for its brewery, the existence of which was documented as early as in the 13th century and whose production can be tasted in the monastery today.
The venue is very close, 1,7km, therefore we don’t plan any special transport. It is a nice walk, about 30 min. The alternative is to take the tram and stop Malovanka to Břevnovský klášter, 4 min. Maps will be distributed.
IMPORTANT: Stiletto heels are NOT allowed due to presence of historical floors!
The map can be found here You can either walk (2km, 30 mins) or take a tram (22 or 25 at the side closer to the hotel, i.e., to the right) to stop “Břevnovský klášter” (4 stops).
