The Meeting Dinner will be held at the Restaurant Střelecký Ostrov, located on an island (Střelecký Ostrov) in the Vltava river under the Legionnaires Bridge. Střelecký Ostrov is a romantic place hidden in the shade of mature trees in the heart of the city. The Restaurant Střelecký Ostrov enchants visitors with its old-time atmosphere, and with exceptional views of the National Theater, the Žofín Palace, and other prominent sights of the city, directly from the surface of the Vltava River.
The island has a rich history: Marksmanship competitions took place here as early as the 15th century, giving the island its name (Střelecký Ostrov literally means Marksmanship Island). Later, in 18th century, the construction of the Empire House enriched the island with social life, offering a unique venue for concerts, balls, and performances by variety and cabaret artists.
In August 2002, the island was affected by a historic flood, with most construction on the island sustaining severe damage. In 2013, extensive reconstruction took place, allowing visitors to once again enjoy this unique and enchanting venue.
