PyCon CZ will take place at Hlubina – the coal mine complex re-made into a cozy conference center. We're pretty excited about the place, and hope you'll be as well!
The Conference hall is in the middle of the national monument area called Dolní Vítkovice (shortened DOV or DV).
Check DOV’s offical video to get the idea about the area.
Dolní oblast Vítkovice (DOV) is a national site of industrial heritage located in the centre of Ostrava. It includes extensive industrial ironworks with a former coal mine, coke ovens and blast furnace operations with exceptional technology flow and specialized machines as well as a unique collection of industrial architecture.
The manufacturing complex closed down in the 19th century, but since then it was transformed into a unique educational, social and cultural centre. Its significance now reaches beyond the boundaries of the region.
Getting to the venue
Both rooms and chill-out zone and more will be at Brick House (“Staré koupelny” in Czech).
Don’t worry! There will be a navigation in place to guide you through the area during PyCon CZ.
The venue is just a 2-minute walk from the tram stop Důl Hlubina. Follow signs with PyCon CZ logo from there.
