My name is Karol Choliński. Since 2009 I’ve been working in the Delta Tour travel agency in Warsaw, Poland. My tasks include searching and booking the most suitable hotels for our clients, organising local transport, preparing incentive programs and the general coordination of all services. Occasionally I travel abroad with groups as a pilot and interpreter. Beside Polish I speak English, German and Spanish, which is very helpful and convenient for my job.
Prague, the capital of Czech Republic, is without any doubt one of the most charming places of Europe. It is known also as “Golden Prague”, “The city of one hundred towers”, “Golden ship on the Vltava”, “Mother of cities” or “Heart of Europe”. No matter how sophisticated a nickname you use, nothing can truly express Prague’s charm and beauty. You must simply take a look at the city and taste it, walk through its narrow streets, admire the comprehensive composition of Roman, Gothic, renaissance, baroque and classical architecture, then finally take a rest in an old restaurant with a glass of beer brewed in a local brewery and try the delicious specialties of Czech cuisine. Even though you will follow these clues, please do not expect that you will be able to discover all the mysteries of Prague… but you can always try. It is definitely worth it!
In the heart of the historical centre of the Czech capital is the Charles Bridge Palace Hotel. It is a 4-star-deluxe facility operated by the Pinelli family. The hotel has 77 rooms and suites (from 20 to 100 sq.m.) with parquet wooden floor, which lets you enjoy a sense of elegant style and individual design. There are 55 Individually Designed Rooms, 17 Spacious Junior Suites, each with unique details, and 5 Royal Apartments. Among the room facilities are: free Wi-Fi Internet, air conditioning, a mini-bar, safety deposit box, flat screen satellite TV, telephone, shower or bath, hairdryer, cosmetics, ironing facilities. Moreover, many rooms have views to the Vltava River and Prague Castle. The hotel also has meeting capabilities – you can arrange here a meeting for up to 80 pax in theatre-style layout with modern equipment and interpreters at your disposal, if they are requested. Another advantage of the hotel’s location is that within 25 minutes you can reach Prague’s Václav Havel Airport.
In the past Prague used to be very popular among Poles as an urban destination, especially for those who, due to political reasons, could not travel behind the so called “iron curtain”. Now we can enjoy traveling without any obstacles, but Prague is, as I already wrote, well worth a visit. That’s why we decided to organise a city break for a group of approximately 30 pax here – employees of one of the leading European insurance companies. It took place between 5th and 7th of September 2013. They wanted to spend 3 days abroad, so we had to choose a destination not far away from Poland. Prague was a quite obvious decision. As we believe that taste is one of the most important senses, we invited our clients to the most famous and the oldest restaurant-brewery in the city – “U Fleků” – to let them try its specialties. We are quite sure that many members of our group will return to Prague to listen to and feel the beat of “the restless heart of Central Europe.”
