Mini Tours on Wednesday, July 18
Mini-tour Kampa Park and Charles Bridge

This park – an island between the Vltava River and its side branch, Čertovka, where you can see the huge mill wheel of the 15th century former Grand Priory Mill, is one of the most romantic and picturesque places in the city. Not surprisingly, the prestigious traveler's server VirtualTourist declared it the second most beautiful city island in the world. Grassy areas of the island are widely used for picnics and relaxation.

The 14th-century Charles Bridge lined with Baroque statues ranks amongst the most popular tourist attractions in the city. Prague’s oldest bridge was built to replace the Judith Bridge that had been badly damaged by floods in 1342. Called Charles Bridge since 1870, was begun in 1357 by Charles IV and was completed in 1402. Strolling this picturesque bridge, with its impressive vistas over Prague Castle and the Vltava River, should be on everyone's bucket list.

Mini Tour Reconstructing the Zeitgeist of Arnold Pick᾽s and Oskar Fischer᾽s Era

Arnold Pick was a Czech psychiatrist known for being the first to identify Pick’s disease. He was the head of the Prague Neuropathological School, which was one of only two such schools at the time; the other school was located in Munich, where Alois Alzheimer practiced.
The leadership of the Neuropsychology Section of the Czech and Moravian Psychological Society have graciously offered to organize a mini-tour from the Congress Center to the General University Hospital (a 3 km walk) where Pick practiced. This tour involves visiting Pick’s original office and learning other interesting historical tid-bids about Pick’s time in Prague.
For details about this tour, please attend the Welcome Ceremony on Wednesday and the Closing Ceremony on Friday, or inquire at the registration desk.

This Prague walking tour will show the buildings and interior where Arnold Pick and Oskar Fischer were working (today: Dept. of Neurology, First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University) located in walking distance from Prague Congress Centre. The commentary during the walk aims at reconstructing the historical and cultural milieu of the medical Prague society from 1880᾽s to 1939 including some architectural and urban jewels.

Mini-tour to the Petřín Lookout Tower

The Petřín Lookout Tower (Czech: Petřínská rozhledna) is a 63.5-metre-tall steel-framework tower in Prague, which strongly resembles the Eiffel Tower. It was built in 1891 and was used as an observation tower as well as a transmission tower. Today the Petřínská rozhledna is a major tourist attraction. We get there by a public transport funicular. The two observation platforms are accessible via 299 stairs in sections of 13 per flight running around the inside of the structure, or an elevator. The outlook cabin located fifty-three meters high offers a wonderful view of the whole Prague. There are a gift shop and a small cafeteria on the main level. On the lowest level is a small exhibition area.
