Dear Colleagues,


We are preparing for the 10th Jubilee of the Technology Transfer in Diagnostic Pathology Central European Regional Meeting series. We would like to celebrate this important jubilee by outstanding scientific content in the field of Gynecological Pathology, but our aim is to make this event a little bit more special than the former nine meetings were.

Therefore, hereby we announce that every 10th congress registration will be accompanied by a small present that will be handed to the registrants upon arrival to Hotel Silvanus Visegrád.

So please join the game, register to the Technology Transfer in Diagnostic Pathology 10th Central European Regional Meeting and be the 10th, the 20th, the 30th…the 200th and win a jubilee present!

We look very much forward to welcome you in Visegrád,


The Organizers

On the hillside above Visegrád, the hotel offers a breath-taking view of the Danube Bend, with an undisturbed natural environment, quiet surroundings and excellent conference and wellness services.

Visegrád is one of the gems of the Danube Bend to the north of Budapest.
Archeological findings provide evidence that the settlement has been inhabited since ancient times and that its importance first grew under the Roman Empire. Later it became a residence of princes, known as Visegrád.
In the 14th century Visegrád developed rapidly. During the reign of the renaissance King Matthias extravagant construction started. The palace complex evolved, enriched with late-Gothic elements.
With the arrival of steamboat traffic on the Danube in the early 19th century, a new chapter opened in the history of Visegrád.
Today the Danube Bend is an outstanding holiday resort and recreation area where the mountains, the river, and the flat lands meet. The buildings of the former Visegrád fortress are museums, while the excavated and reconstructed parts of the former Royal Palace host castle games during the summer.
Visegrád is further linked to the so called 'Visegrád Four' or V4, which is the alliance of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. The Group was formed in Visegrád on February 15, 1991, with the aim to intensify mutual co-operation and friendship between the four states.


We provide transfer from Visegrád Hajóállomás bus station to Hotel Silvanus on June 27, at 11:48.
Please catch the following bus in Budapest to reach the transfer:
