A Reunion of Graduates and Friends on the Occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the Faculty of Pharmacy, Charles University, in Hradec Králové Was a Success


On Saturday, 19 October 2019, at 10 AM, a rich programme was held on Open Day for graduates and friends in all parts of the faculty. Visitors were able to see exhibitions entitled “50 Years of the Faculty of Pharmacy, Charles University in Hradec Králové” and “The History and Present of Departments and Centres of the Faculty of Pharmacy”. A visit to the new Campus building, where two departments are based, was very popular. The Garden of Medicinal Plants offered guided tours that attracted many people. Also, a brand new publication entitled “Almanac for the 50th Anniversary of the Faculty of Pharmacy, Charles University in Hradec Králové” enjoyed great attention. The Saturday programme was appropriately accompanied by films on the history and present day of the faculty that were screened in lecture hall A (“Retro Cinema”), lecture hall B (“Student Cinema”), and lecture hall C (“Contemporary Cinema”) and in the new Campus building. The Czech Pharmaceutical Museum in Kuks also provided guided tours.

In the afternoon, a meeting with faculty management and a discussion panel on “The History, Present and Future of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Practice and Education” were held.


Saturday celebrations were crowned by a social event held in the Petrof Gallery social and cultural centre. The event was hosted by faculty graduate PharmDr. Jana Doleželová. Opening speeches by Dean Prof. Šimůnek, and Rector Prof. Zima, were followed by a ceremony at which medals were awarded to leading faculty figures.


The evening ended with a concert by violin virtuoso Jaroslav Svěcený and a reception. The informal part of the event was accompanied by the DiJazzTiva faculty band.

We would like to thank everybody who participated in the preparation of the 50th anniversary celebration of the faculty, but first and foremost to members of the organizational committee, and to other employees and students.
