Situated in the heart of Europe and easily accessible by air, road or rail, Prague offers a vibrant and modern lifestyle in a charming historical city. Nestled in a valley on the river Vltava, the city has plenty to offer: an impressive castle, beautiful baroque palaces, gardens, famous old bridges and picturesque medieval streets. You can visit an art gallery or sample tasty traditional dishes in one of the many restaurants, experience upbeat shopping districts or enjoy the breath-taking panoramic views from one of its hundred towers.
The Conference venue, Prague Congress Centre, is centrally located on a hill opposite Prague Castle. It is only three stops away from Prague´s main train station, is directly at a subway stop and offers plenty of parking. Prague Conference Centre was an excellent venue for the 26th IATEFL BESIG Annual Conference, the most important global event for business English trainers.
