About:

The Prague Crossroads, an international spiritual centre, is one of the projects of Dagmar and Václav Havel Foundation VIZE 97, which is also intended to preserve and administer this unique space. Prague Crossroads is located in a long-deconsecrated church, founded by St Wenceslas in 927 A.D.

The main inspiration for the creation of the Prague Crossroads came from the former Czech President – the dissident, writer and dramatist Václav Havel. His concept was an evocative venue for all kinds of meetings, where lectures, discussions, concerts, performances, exhibitions, meditation and happenings can take place in a spirit of respect for the multicultural diversity of the modern world. Its main objective is to respond to the now widely felt need for open-minded and creative dialogue among people of different faiths, convictions and professions about the present state of our civilisation, the dangers threatening it, and the hopes for the future.

Wedding dinner at V Zatisi

Hi Andrea,

Andy and I hope you and your husband, Tom, are well and that Amelie (Magic Baby) is feeling much better.

We had a nap Wednesday afternoon, then to the concert which was so moving, another emotional event for both of us.  The Rudolfinum, small concert hall, 8 players.  To listen to the music now means so much more than ever before.  Today I purchased Dvorak in Prague and Johann Pachelbel: Canon & Gigue.

I just wanted to let you know of course we got home OK and hopefully we will be among those who actually make it back to Prague when they say they will be back!  You live in the most beautiful and captivating city I have ever visited.

We so enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you.  When you visit the States, please look us up.  You could stay in our Provincetown cottage on the ocean!  Something to think about.

We are looking forward to our photographs.  What a Day!

Fondly and with best regards,
Kris and Andy

Hello Andrea!

I thought you would like to know we were happy to receive the package with documents and photographs; and we are VERY pleased with photos, we look at them over and over again.  We do not have very many pictures of us together and so these are especially nice!  And look, there is Andrea! and there are the swans! and everything so beautiful.  What a day!

And, ta da…

We are returning to Prague for my birthday on January 10th.  I am booking trip today; same hotel, same flights, one additional night; leaving on the 17th.

Of course we hope to get together with you during this time – join us for dinner?  Concert?  Walk in the park??

Looking forward to hearing from you and Best Wishes to you, Andrea.

Lobkowicz palace

Facts:

• wedding receptions for up to 180 people in the Imperial hall, for up to 80 people in the Balcony room and up to 70 people in the Concert hall

• terrace with breathtaking views of Castle gardens and terraces, connected with the Balcony room

• type of cuisine – upon wish (catering)

• rental fee required based on the room

About:

The Palace was originally built in the middle of the 16th century by Jaroslav of Pernstejn & his brother Vratislav, High Chancellor of Bohemia. It was to this very building that the injured ministers Martinic & Slavata were brought and hidden by Polyxena after their famous defenestration from the adjoining Royal Castle in 1618.

After the Battle of the White Mountain in 1620, the Lobkowicz family stood at the forefront of Central European politics & culture for the next 300 years. Large scale remodeling of the Palace interior was undertaken in the mid-17th and 19th centuries, as well as functional alterations under the Communist regime (1948-1989). The castle was confiscated by the Communists in 1952 from Prince Maximilian Lobkowicz. Max was a friend and supporter of Thomas Masaryk (President of Czechoslovakia) and his son, Jan Masaryk (Foreign Minister) and became Czechoslovak Ambassador to Great Britain during World War II (serving from 1939-1948). The Lobkowicz Palace was returned to the Roudnice Lobkowicz family in 2003 under the restitution laws of 1991.

Capacity of the palace is for up to 120 people at the Main hall.

Hello Andrea,

Thank you so much for helping to arrange such a fairy tale wedding. It was amazing….. I’d like to do it again! Everyone enjoyed themselves so much, it was said that it’s been the best wedding so far.

We will collect marriage license when we return as i’d like to meet with you and your husband in November.

I meant to mention that a UK Asian Bridal magazine are interested to run feature on our wedding. I’ll keep you posted as I’d like to mention all suppliers involved. If that is OK?

Last of our guests left yesterday it’s so quiet now. We leave on Saturday for our honeymoon and back in November.

Take care and thanks again! It was something really special!

Hi Mirka,

Ike and I wanted to thank you sooo much for your hard work. Our wedding was far and beyond anything we could have ever imagined!  Every aspect of our wedding was perfect. Everyone had such a wonderful evening, I’m sure it’s something we all will remember forever.  You really are amazing-walking out in a thunderstorm and getting soaked just to make sure our guests would not get wet.  Hopefully your clothes have dried 🙂

I can’t thank you enough!  Take care and I wish you and your family all the best.

-Ike and Maren Eckert

Hi Andrea,

Good to hear from you.  Your photos are sooo cute!  I bet Italy was so much fun!  Amelie is adorable!

It’s too bad I never got to meet you when we had our wedding but I must say Mirka did such a wonderful job with our wedding!  We could not have been happier & everything was perfect!

Your company is fantastic and if you ever need to use me as a reference, I would be more than happy to help in any way possible!

Thanks again for everything,

Maren

Dear Andrea & Martina

Thank you so much for giving us and our guests the most beautiful fairytale wedding, we’ll never forget it! You have exceeded our expectations in absolutely every sense. And on top of that, you are the friendliest bunch of people! We will be recommending you to everybody we know, whether they are single or married!

As I’ve been frequently saying throughout the whole year, you’ve always made us feel like your only clients.

We have been soooo impressed with your prompt responses to all our emails, even during weekends and late at night, with your “can-do” attitude, with your organisational abilities, with you going outside your job description in order to rescue us from our “cancelled flight nightmare” and our “hire-car no-show drama”…. I could go on and on!

A big thank you for helping me choose my stunning wedding dress, booking the best hairdresser in Krumlov and I can’t even begin to describe how well I felt looked after on the day.

All the best for the future & many more happy clients!

Lots of love from Jeff & Judi xx

Hallo Andrea and Martina,

first of all thank you very much for sending the certificate and the DvD. In reply on this mail, yes we had a more than wonderfull time in Praque!!!! Everything was more than wonderfull and looking at the DvD we shared some (more than some hi hi) tears together. The filmer made something beautiful work which gives us a beautiful memory for life! Will you thank him again and the photographer as well, because the pictures are also perfect.

It took me some time to answer you, because I tried to send you some pictures from our wedding in Zaandam, but it did not succeed, I will try again later if I can find somebody to help me with it.

Will you send us also a namecard from the photographer and the filmer, also that would be nice.

Than we are very curious how you are doiing now!! We hope that everything still is going well. Anyhow we think about you and of course your husband.

We hope to hear soon from you! however I can’t open my email because there is a fold and I need help to solve it.

With kind regards Ron and Brigitte
