Social evening - Get together / South Bohemian Museum (19:00 – 22:00)

Address of the Jihočeské Muzeum:
Dukelská 1
370 51, České Budějovice

The South Bohemian Museum is housed in a monumental building completed in 1901 and was made accessible to the public in 1903. However, it was already founded in 1877 by the Museum Association, which predestined it for the modern mission of an educational and collectors institute serving science, art and industrial development. At the present, it is a beautiful regional museum, which focuses on natural and social sciences.

First we start with Honorary Ceremony lecture followed by cold and warm buffet.
From 21 o'clock you can listen to the Historiographical lecture – Radim Černý: „German-speaking physiological chemists and biochemists at Charles University in Prague“.

During the entire evening you can visit all museum´s expositions. We very reccomend.

A chemical laboratory is often just a few hundred metres away from the pharmacy on the corner. But on this journey, a molecule of a medicine passes through hundreds of millions of dollars worth process on which thousands of people participate. That is to say, the one molecule lucky to reach the finish line. The Elegance of the Molecule tells a story of three such substances and their three “fathers”, one of them being professor Antonín Holý, a Czech chemist genius. The play deals with the genesis and the dramatic industrial development of substances produced by Czech chemical laboratories that are used today by more than eighty percent of AIDS patients all over the world.Otto Wichterle had his famous story about constructing a Merkur (a construction set for children built in Czechoslovakia) based apparatus for experimental production of his first soft contact lenses. Petr Zelenka’s play is looking for a similar Merkur in the life of Antonín Holý. Elegance molekuly is a story about a strong vision, prescience, luck and a reward that came too late.
