Congress Tourism

Over a relatively short period of time, Prague has become one of the top congress destinations in Europe. Modern hotels have been built, offering a wide range of conference facilities and up to date service facilities. The Prague Congress Centre has been extensively modernised, and the international airport has also been expanded and has extended its services to include conference facilities too.

Prague enjoys the major advantage of its ideal position in the heart of Europe. Dozens of flights are scheduled for Prague every day, and the capital city has also become a major destination for budget airlines (especially from the UK), which makes travelling to Prague inexpensive and very convenient. The total capacity of conference facilities in the Czech Republic is almost 50,000 places, all found in modern establishments.

Congress and conference premises

The Prague Congress Centre

The Prague Congress Centre is one of the biggest and most important congress centres in central Europe. In 2000, building renovation works were completed and building is now fully modernised. A large hotel and office facilities were also added. The centre offers 20 halls and 50 rooms with capacities ranging from 12 up to nearly 3000 people. With its wide range of meeting, banquet and exhibition facilities, including related services, it is the largest and most comprehensive provider of congress and conference services both in Prague and in the whole national market. website


On the other hand, in the historical conference rooms of Žofín you will feel the idyllic atmosphere of old Prague. The neo-Renaissance structure was completed in 1886, and in 1992-94 it was extensively reconstructed. Today the building provides exclusive rooms for conferences, congresses and other business meetings, and also for representative balls and other social events. website
