Convergence Center Opens, Now Needs
The INPEG convergence center is
now open and located on Libensky Most,
100 yards from the Palmovka metro station
on the yellow line (C line). To get
there, exit the metro stop by heading to
the right where it says Holesovice, then
cross the Libensky Most Bridge. The
convergence center is a large building on
the right, and stairs lead from the
bridge to the ground level where the
