Regular registration for the Spring Retreat is now closed. If you didn’t register in time, you can still get on a waiting list by going ahead and filling out the registration form anyway. If someone cancels and a place becomes available, we will contact people on the waiting list in the order in which they signed up. Anyone to whom we offer such a place will have 24 hours from the time the mail reached your inbox to accept it. If we don’t hear from them within that time we will withdraw the offer and go on to the next person on the list. Therefore, if you do register for the waiting list, make sure you check your mail frequently so you don’t miss your chance.

Registration includes four pages:

  1. On Page One you will fill out information regarding the contact person for your group.
  2. On Page Two you will enter information about each person in the group and select room types for each member.
    Please note that new questions relating to the RE program have been added to this page so, if you have children attending, please answer the questions carefully so that they, too, have an enjoyable Retreat.
  3. Page Three will report your total cost and allow you to select a payment method.
  4. Page Four gives a summary of all the information you have entered and asks you to validate this information before submitting it.

About Religious Education for Children and Teens (RE)

Religious Education (RE) is an interactive and fun way for your children ages 5 and up to learn what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist. RE Classes will be held on Saturday during the theme talk and workshops. Babysitting for children under 5 will be available.

Retreat rooms

The hotel provides towels and all rooms are equipped with a TV, safe and hair drier.


Unfortunately Prague is not the most "disabled friendly" city and the hotel accommodation is not wheelchair friendly - although all rooms are accessible by lift and there are public disabled toilets on the ground and second floors.

The Retreat will be held in the conference centre which is more accessible, with lift and stair access - and meeting rooms are all on the same floor. The main congress room is split over three levels - with the middle level having step free access from the other meeting rooms.

Information on more accessible and wheelchair friendly hotels can be found here. If staying in another hotel, the Hotel Olsanka is on several tram routes - 1, 2, 5, 9, 13, 15, and 26

Staying Additional Nights

The hotel have agreed, subject to availabilty, to offer extra nights at the same price - 50€ per night for a single room, 64€ per night for a double and 92€ for a family room for 4. Rooms will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Unfortunately we have to book these directly with the hotel, so if you want to stay extra nights you need to let Simon or Mark know directly and they will confirm the registration with the hotel. Contact details for Simon and Mark will be in your confirmation email.

Payment for any additional nights should be made at the hotel on arrival.


Paying your bill at the same time you register makes the entire process simpler for our volunteers and is greatly appreciated. It will also increase the chances that you will get the room type you have requested. Your registration is not complete, and your place is not securely reserved, until your payment has been received. Payment deadlines coincide with the dates on which we need to inform the retreat sites about our accommodation needs and are not flexible.

Cancellation Policy:

We are sure that you understand that EUU makes a contract commitment for a large amount of money to the Retreat sites, and many times we have to pay full price for the rooms, even if we can’t use them because of cancellations. For this reason, we have developed the following policy:
