FEBS Workshop

Important Notes

The buses with participants will leave from Bratislava to Smolenice in the morning of June 9th, 2013 at 09.30 am. For those unable to arrive in Bratislava on June 9th prior to the bus departure, accommodation will be available in the Park Inn Danube Hotel. The meeting point for all participants will be in front of the Park Inn Danube Hotel, Rybné námestie 1, Bratislava. Please, contact the organizers for details.

As Smolenice Castle has limited accommodation capacity, a “first come-first served” method will be used to allocate rooms during registration. Alternative accommodation in Smolenice is available at the hotel Solmus, which is located about 3 km from the Castle. Shuttle bus transportation will be provided for free.

Registration in Smolenice Castle will start at 10.30 am on Sunday, June 9, 2013. The workshop will end on Thursday, June 13, 2013 after breakfast. The planned departure from Smolenice Castle to Bratislava is at 10.00 am.

On the first day of the workshop, on June 9th, there will be a Welcome Party with an opportunity to visit the castle wine degustation to taste local white and red wines. During the free day on June 11 (Tuesday) two alternative programs (for free) have been prepared: 1. Trip to the Small Carpathians Mountains with the possibility to visit Molpir (Celtic settlement, 6th century BC); 2. Excursion to the well-known ceramics manufacture Majolica in Modra and a visit of the Driny Stalactite Cave.
