Moderator Veronika Ruppert guided the guests through the program in a sophisticated manner. Tina Haselbacher, from the Viennese Haselbacher family, which owns the Almanac Hotels chain, did not miss the interesting social event.
The original Hotel Alcron from the 1930s is a charming example of Art Deco style. Some of the original elements can still be found in the hotel today, their charm is perfectly underlined by the works of representatives of Czech modernism of the 21st century. Most of the works are directly owned by the hotel, but on this occasion, the hotel premises were also decorated with other interesting creations by young and talented artists. An interesting event at this location started the tradition of holding art exhibitions open to the public.
During the social evening Welcome to Almanac X Alcron Prague, with the subtitle Meet & Greet Artist, four artists presented their original pieces.
