Frontiers of Quantum and Mesoscopic Thermodynamics

9 - 15 July 2017, Prague, Czech Republic

Social Events, Concerts

(subject to change)

An encompassing social program includes the number of social events and tours in order that participants may enjoy not only physics but also Prague during the conference, sometimes in a way, which is hardly available to common visitors of Prague. Hence for accompanying persons this is an opportunity of rare quality to visit to this city.

Participants of FQMT'17 conference will have an exceptional opportunity to spend some time in the Wallenstein Palace. The participants and their partners could enjoy the large baroque Garden of the Wallenstein Palace with its nice Sala Terrena for discussions during the evening welcome party. A guided tour will be organized through the huge baroque complex of the Wallenstein Palace. This would be a unique experience by itself since it is difficult to see all these places under ordinary circumstances.

In keeping with the multidisciplinary character of the scientific program, the cultural richness of the city of Prague and the tradition of the previous FQMT conferences, the FQMT’17 program will feature concerts performed by world-class musicians, held at outstanding venues of the city. The list of these places includes the National House of Vinohrady (Neo-Renaissance social and culture centre with luxurious halls), Dvořák's Hall of the Rudolfinum (the seat of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and famous by concerts of Prague Spring Festival), the gothic Cathedral of St. Vitus at Prague Castle (one of the symbols of the Czech Lands), and the baroque St. Margaret Church at the Břevnov Monastery.
