This monumental baroque palace is located in the very historical center of Prague, just below the Prague castle in the part of Prague called the Lesser Town (or the Little Quarter, Mala Strana in Czech), where you can find a beautiful coexistence of complexes of gothic, renaissance and baroque palaces, churches and gardens - see map Prague center - FQMT04 sites neighbourhood . The Wallenstein palace is nowadays the seat of the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech republic. It is therefore only very exceptionally open for public events. These events must be approved by a commitee of the Senate. The FQMT04 conference is very lucky to receive the support from the Senate and the possibility to use a part of the Wallenstein palace for its activities.
Participants of FQMT 04 conference will have a really exceptional chance to spend two conference days in the Wallenstein palace. This could be an interesting experience for all participants since in this case FQMT04 participants will have a possibility to use not only the Main Hall of this palace but also related smaller baroque rooms. FQMT04 can enjoy the large baroque garden of the Wallenstein palace with its nice sala terrena for discussions during the day and for the Monday evening party. The guided tour through the whole huge baroque complex of the Wallenstein Palace will be an exceptional experience by itself since it is difficult to see all these places under the normal circumstances.
The registration on Monday morning (July 26) will take part in the Entrance hall of the Wallenstein Palace - ground floor, gate C2 accesible from the Fourth courtyard - see plan of the Ground floor below in the section Orientation inside
All lectures of the FQMT04 conference during Monday and Tuesday (July 26 and 27) will be held in the Main Hall (sometimes also called Hall of Knights) at the second floor of the Wallenstein palace. This hall has capacity about 150 people, and even if it has its original appearance from the beginning of 17th century, it has in the same time the top technical equipment for lecturing and it is air conditioned.
