    I seem to remember having a chat to you in the caves.
    Never too late for a rematch where beer is involved Tim.

    First of all, please, note that Saturday part of event will be (probably) somewhere else (thinking about Košíře on the opposite river bank). There is no ideal venue for Saturday close to Svět deskových her after closing Hotel Mars (pity!) and we want to keep it cheap. Friday and Sunday still in Svět deskových her, so not a bad quarter to stay there.

    I need to book something soon.

    Also, are there any highly recommended day excursions I might want to tack on to my visit?
    I remember there were plenty of Air B'n'B appartments for cheap rent there if you do not need ***** hotel

    Never been in that museum, but Dresden is a little gem on Elbe. There is also an interesting Museum of Hygiene there (sounds boring, but it is not) in pre-war bulding built according to Speer's architecture (building, not the museum; also interesting experience to walk around).

    I love Dresden. The rebuilt church is absolutely stellar, the town is full of young people who speak English, the brutalist architecture in the centre is also a gem and seeing a concrete apartment houses right across the street from the city centre is something you won't see anywhere else. They also have a weekend flea market on the river bank, where you can but assorted Hitler related stuff

    ...and it is really easy and cheap to get there by a train.

    If I remember correctly, two and a half hours by train and a quick bus ride to the Army museum, outside of which is an impressive memorial to the Soviet army. Definitely worth the trip.
    Run for your life - there are stupid people everywhere!

    I’d love to come, but not sure the pocket money will stretch that far.
