Dear cavers and karst students, It is big honor for me to invite you to participate on the 16th International Congress of Speleology 2013, which will be held in Moravian Capital, city of Brno. Organizers – the Czech Speleological Society and partners – selected the congress site very carefully taking many aspects into account. City of Brno is the historical capital of the Moravian Country, one of three principal parts of the former Czech Kingdom. The city offers all advantages of the capital, but in acceptable dimensions of the city size. As the Czech trade fair centre, the Congress venue will offer all possible comfort not only for bureaucratic congress background, but also for cultural, sportive and other activities.
