For the second year, the floor-covering company IPSAL, which specializes
in supplying hotels, organized a go-cart race in Radotín for managers
of four- and five-star hotels. The three winning teams this year
were, respectively, the Hilton, the Crowne Plaza (last year's winner)
and Novotel (at the same place as last year).
The fastest team this year, Hilton; the second fastest team (last
year's winner), Crowne Plaza; the third fastest team, Novotel.

Florá in full bloom
Palác Flóra, a new shopping center in Vinohrady, opened its gates
at the end of March. During the grand opening, the four-storey building
buzzed with fireworks, live music and hundreds of people wandering
around - a good sign that the project will attract a lot of attention.

Luck of the Irish
The British Chamber of Commerce's regular mixers are getting popular.
This time they celebrated St. Patrick's day in Joshua Tree, where
there was something to suit everyone's taste - good wine, Irish
whisky and old friends.
