CESTC 2013 - Central European Symposium on Theoretical Chemistry
Login  Excursion

We offer to the participants the choice of two excursions for the free afternoon on September 24.

1. Guided tour in Znojmo and wine tasting in Winery Vanek

This excursion consists in a tour in the historic part of Znojmo city with an english speaking professional guide. Znojmo offers many highlights, such as the gothic St. Nicholas church, medieval fortifications, and renaissance and baroque residences of nobles and rich burghers. Besides its rich history, Znojmo is known for production of excellent wine.
Winery Vanek is located about 7 km south of Znojmo. Mr. Vanek is producing the top wines in the region. He will guide the group through the family owned wine cellars and a selection of his wines will be offered for tasting. If you happen to like Mr. Vanek's wine, you can purchase a bottle or more from Mr. Vanek (only CZK cash accepted).

Transportation will be provided by bus. Price of the whole excursion is 10 Euro. The number of participants is limited by the capacity of the bus and hence registrations will be accepted on the basis of the first coming.

2. Hiking in the Podyji National Park

The Dyje Canyon, located between the towns of Vranov nad Dyji and Znojmo, offers over seventy kilometers of easy to medium difficulty hiking trails. Some of these are within walking distance from the conference venue. For short trips, we recommend visiting either Sealsfieldův kámen (Sealsfield's Stone) or Králův stolec (The king's throne) -- cf. the map.
