The only exceptions from “excellent” and “very good” date back a long time before we started, so we’re utterly happy! This inspired us to celebrate and give away rooms at a special discount:
from February 27 till March 27, 2017.
That’s good for you,
there are conditions:
ARCO Guesthouse has a cultural focus. Thus we’d like to attract people who don’t judge things like our ugly staircase, but things like our library, our videos, our Walking Seminars, our collection of theses and diploma papers on specific aspects of Prague’s history, literature, architecture, social development, ethnic questions etc.
we make a QUIZ and will ask you to answer the following questions, the correct answer of which will be rewarded accordingly. All entries will be answered, the winner(s) will be selected from all correct entries. Please choose which question you would like to answer. Please understand that each participant can be awarded only once.
Please explain in a few sentences in German, English, French, Italian or Czech:
1) The EASY question:
Who was Moritz Gröbe and in which way is he or rather his legacy relevant to the location of ARCO Guesthouse?
Award: 3 nights for two guests @ €29/night/room incl. large breakfast AND a full day tour on a subject on demand.
2) The TRICKY question:
Close to ARCO Guesthouse and a bit hidden behind old trees one discovers a pavilion in Art Nouveau style, small but striking, especially at night when the lights are on. This was the workshop of Ladislav Šaloun. Which of his creations basically every Prague visitor can see in Prague’s downtown?
Award: 3 nights for two guests @ €25/night/room incl. large breakfast AND a full day tour on a subject on demand.
3) The DIFFICULT question:
Why did Joachim Barrande come to Prague? Which area AND which organisation remind us of his name? Who founded the organisation mentioned?
Award: 3 nights for two guests @ €20/night/room incl. large breakfast AND a full day tour on a subject on demand.
