VENUE – NEW BUILDING OF THE NATIONAL MUSEUM PRAGUE (FORMER HOUSE OF PARLIAMENT)
The 2020 EAC Annual Meeting was held in The New Building of The National Museum in Prague, in the heart of the city centre (Vinohradská 1, Praha 1).
The new building of the National Museum was obtained by the National Museum in the 2006 and on the 1st of June 2009 the National Museum has taken over this building from the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. The building has a very interesting history because it served at first as the Prague Stock Exchange (1938 to the arrival of the occupational forces), then as the parliament (1946–1992), radio studio (1995–2009) and at present it is has the function of a museum.
