Welcome Reception: Velkoprevorsky Palace

Near the Maltese Square (Maltézské náměstí) and in front of the French Embassy (Velkopřevorské náměstí) there is one of the top sights of Prague: the JOHN LENNON WALL. The wall is the property of the Knights of Malta, and they have repainted it several times, but it soon gets covered with more Lennon images, peace messages and inconsequential tourist graffiti.

Behind that wall there is an exquisite and quiet garden, part of the Velkoprevorsky Palace, property also of the Knights of Malta. There, on Tuesday July 3rd, weather permitting, we will be hosting our Welcome Reception for SMACD and PRIME 2018 delegates. The Welcome Reception provides an excellent opportunity to network, meet old friends and colleagues, as well as meet new people as the programs of SMACD and PRIME begin. A light buffet dinner will be served during this event.

Conference Dinner: Lobkowicz Palace at Prague Castle

On Wednesday July 4th, we will host the SMACD & PRIME 2018 Conference Dinner. For that, we have selected a stunning, privileged location, with one of the most amazing views of the city: the Prague Castle – Pražský hrad, or just hrad. Looming above the Vltava’s left bank, its serried ranks of spires, palaces and towers dominate the city centre like a fairy-tale fortress. Within its walls lies a varied and fascinating collection of historic buildings.

One of these buildings is the venue of our Conference Dinner: the 16th-century Lobkovický Palác, housing a private museum known as the Princely Collections, which includes priceless paintings, furniture and musical memorabilia.
