The principal function of the Komensky Club is to provide wide ranging events that focus on culture and history and that bring together people of diverse backgrounds who share an interest in all things Czech.
Feel free to look around this website, and most of all, we hope you learn something about us. When you're done, we'd really appreciate some feedback on the site, and any ideas on how to make it better. You can get our e-mail address in the Contact section.
