The individual stations are reached in the afternoon, so that you still have enough time to visit the cities each evening.

If you want play you should register quickly. Experience shows that the seats are fast. The number of places is limited, and the annual tradition is popular. To register contact prazska.sachova@gmail.com.

The travel costs are 199 EUR per player, and 149 EUR for accompanying persons. The accommodation can also be booked through the organizer in the selected 3-star, 4-star or 5-star hotels or via individual booking — you can organize the accommodation on your own if you wish.
