And so was the three-day celebration of the 7th ESSENS Anniversary for over 160 guests, which took place during the 12th – 14th of October 2018, in the exclusive Four Seasons Lion Palace hotel.
The rich programme included a city tour, combined with a private visit to the world-famous Hermitage Museum, stop at Aurora cruiser and an evening cruise on the river, Neva.
The highlight of this extended weekend was the Saturday Gala Evening, taking place this time in the magnificent premises of the ethnographic museum. After the opening speech and ceremonial toast from Mr. Michal Kovář, a four-course dinner followed. As a surprise, the St. Petersburg Army choir and dance ensemble perfomed, followed by the award and reward ceremony for the most successful leaders of the past year, giving thanks to valuable guests and the ESSENS owners.
Traditional cutting of the birthday cake couldn´t be missed out, nor a spectacular video of Barcelona, as a small taste of the preparations for the 8th Anniversary.
