Faculty of Science Field Station Velemín no. 142

The Velemín Field Station of the Faculty of Science is managed by the CUFS Department of Botany. It is located at the southwest end of the village of Velemín near motorway E55 (8) which runs from Prague to Teplice. It is a yellow building on the left side of the road, just past the turn for the blue hiking trail towards Milešovka. There is a front entrance and a rear entrance through the garden gate.

The station is used for faculty field trips, by students of other universities and graduate students working in the Bohemian Uplands, for work seminars and meetings, or the recreation of faculty employees and their family members.

The building has 20 beds in 4 separate rooms, a kitchen equipped with a stove and electric kettle, dining room, shower and WC. Visitors must bring their own sleeping bag and slippers.
