The winter school will be held at the Conference Centre Milovy, the recreation facility Devet skal (Nine Rocks). The centre is located in a small village Milovy in the Bohemian-Moravian Uplands (central part of the Czech Republic) by the town of Zdar nad Sazavou, not far from the central highway D-1 connecting Prague and Brno (two biggest cities of the Czech Republic).
The recreation facility offers swimming pool, sauna, fitness centre, day-club, coffee-rooms, and other services.
The location is easily accessible from airports in Prague or Vienna (see Travel Instructions for more information).
Milovy is one of the best known tourist and sports centres of the Bohemian-Moravian Uplands (height of about 800 metres). Concerning the weather at the time of SOFSEM, the temperature will be probably ranging from -5 to +5 degrees of Celsius, with occasional rain or snow showers; even heavy snowing, although not very probable, cannot be excluded.
The hilly country is very colourful and pleasant for walks, therefore good shoes and sufficiently warm clothing are recommended.
