Effects of Flood Still Felt in Europe

Prague in the Czech Republic and Dresden in Eastern Germany, two historic cities severely damaged by flooding this summer, will continue to feel the effects of the disaster through the first months of 2003.

Katerina Pavlitova, director of the New York City office of the Czech Tourist Authority, told M&C that while Prague’s most popular tourist venues, picturesque Old Town Square and the ornate Prague Castle, were open, several properties popular with incentive groups were expected to take a bit longer to clean up. Among them are the Four Seasons Prague and the Hilton Prague, both scheduled to reopen early next year. At press time, no reopening dates had been set for the city’s subway system and the Jewish Museum.

In Dresden, the Westin Bellevue is scheduled to reopen in early 2003. At press time, the only tourist attractions still closed were parts of the Zwinger Palace museum and the Semperoper opera house; no dates had been set for their reopening.
