DUBAI – Bringing the Czech Republic one step closer to the world, visitors at the Czech Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will encounter an immersive virtual reality experience.
Czech Tourism’s “Czech Therapeutic Landscape is the first exhibition is the first exhibition at the pavilion.
The Oculus Rift VR goggles will virtually transport them to some of the most beautiful places in the Czech Republic, such as the Spa town Marianske Lazne, the Moravian vineyard or the Bohemian Paradise.
Visitors at the entrance are greeted with an innovative structure made of steel pipes that represent clouds and water.
Called the Czech spring, the pavilion addresses the challenge of water scarcity in barren lands through a unique Czech invention called S.A.W. E.R.
This technological marvel uses solar energy to produce drinkable water from the air. Based on condensation techniques, the system can extract water from dry air, even from the driest areas of the world.
The glass industry in the Czech Republic has gained worldwide recognition for its high-quality and artistic craftsmanship. The essence of this art is reflected in the monumental installation of designer glass at the pavilion.
“The pavilion gives a glimpse of the Czech Republic’s architecture, culture, culinary and technological advancements. The main message of the Czech Pavilion is that technology and inventions should help people live a better life, which means above all preserving the planet for future generations,” said Jiri Frantisek Potuznik, the Commissioner General of the Czech Republic Pavilion.
Expatmedia.net was invited to the recent grand opening of the Czech Republic Pavilion, which was attended by Jiri Slavik, Ambassador of the Czech Republic to the UAE; David Koppitz, Deputy Minister of the Minister of Regional Development; Jan Herget, CEO Czech Tourism, and Jiri Frantisek Potuznik, the Commissioner General of the Czech Republic Pavilion.
