Compared with the club in the Faust House, its advantage is that the students can sit for a while in the adjacent small park which is really a quiet and pleasant place. The club so far functions on the self-service basis – it is equipped slot machines where the students can buy coffee, juice, baguettes and sweets. The room has a very pleasant atmosphere.The first visitors who had the chance to test the new facility were the representatives of the Academic Senate of the First Faculty of Medicine, the Association of Czech Medical Professionals, the Dean´s Board, heads of our faculty´s institutes and departments. Spectabilis Professor Zima who contributed considerably to the improved conditions for the students, gave thanks to all, who built the club withina very short time – the head of the Technical Department Ing. Jiřina Kurcová and her whole team, craftsmen, carpenters, gardeners and the administrator of the building PhDr. Jiří Vábr. We wish the students to use the new club frequently not only to study there but also for relaxation.
