Hotel International Prague ****
Agile Management Congress takes place at Hotel International Prague situated within a walking distance of historical castle square with Prague Castle, and picturesque streets of malá Strana. The hotel is included on the list of cultural monuments and is located in a quiet residential area in Prague 6.
The history of the whole hotel is very interesting. The building was built between 1952 and 1956 by the decision of the then Minister of Defence Alexej Čepička. He reportedly hoped that the ceremonial opening would be attended by Josif Stalin.
Hotel International Prague was built in the socialist realism style, or “sorela” as the name of the architectural style is sometimes abbreviated. The building was originally intended to serve as accommodation for soldiers, but the army eventually declared that it could not use such over-sized accommodation, and so the building became a hotel at the last minute. It should be pointed out that this was mainly for military ranks and soldiers from allied nations. In the 1950s however, it was the most luxurious hotel in Czechoslovakia. It had almost two hundred rooms.
Unique decorations can be found in its interior to this day. They are the work of leading Czech and Slovak artists and craftsmen. The quality of the processing and design of its decorative features and lighting fixtures is pleasantly surprising.
The quality of accommodation meets the highest standards. The hotel provides a congress center with all technical amenities. Nearby metro station Dejvická and tram and bus stop right in the front of the hotel enable rapid travel to all parts of the city.
