On the 6th of October, the traditional annual harvest festival was held on the vineyard of Albertov Rental Apartments. All three varieties of wine that grows there – Riesling, Phoenix and Pinot Noir – were quickly harvested thanks to the hardworking colleagues from CTR. After work, everyone was able to taste the wines from previous years and enjoyed the delicious refreshments prepared in the pavilion.
On Sunday, October 2, two important events took place in Košice that we could not miss. First, three complete teams of our colleagues ran the International Peace Marathon in relay and did not do badly at all. The best team finished in 4 hours and 30 minutes. After the marathon and a moment of rest, there was a concert at Dominican Square with the participation of star performers Peter Bič Project, Eniesa and Hali Sax, which we were happy to co-organize. We thoroughly enjoyed the performance and became energized for the chilly autumn days.
We have spent the past prolonged weekend on a teambuilding. Employees of the Czech and Slovak companies of the CTR group gathered in the Tyrolean resort of Soelden. We climbed a three-thousand high Schwarzkogel, by gondola followed the footsteps of James Bond to the 007 Elements Museum on the peak of Gaislachkogel, hiked to Stuibenfall, the highest waterfall in Tyrol, and of course – thoroughly tested the quality of local traditional dishes, beers and wines from family wineries.
We see a high demand for our completely finished flats in the centre of Prague in the Viktoria Center project. After half a year we have already sold almost 70 % of the units.

Yesterday we celebrated the completion of the new CTR group headquarters in Prague – Žižkov, meeting each other over delicious grilled food and glasses of fine drinks. Great weather and unique rooftop terrace with a view of Prague provided us with the ideal conditions for getting to know each other as the employees of the individual companies of the group have been moved to the new premises from three different locations. We love our new offices and hope that we will work here as best we can!!
On our teambuilding on Monday we had a chance to try (for many of us even for the very first time) a new sport activity – curling in the Curling Aréna Praha Roztyly. Relatively fast, all of us became familiar with the ice brooms and stones and we could play several thrilling and even matches. After the effort, we had a chance to recover, refill energy a talk to each other over delicious meals and beverages.
A week ago, immediately after Russia started their invasion of Ukraine, we decided to provide all 24 currently vacant apartments in Košice Rental Apartments free of charge to Ukrainian refugees expelled from their homeland by the war. In one week we managed to buy, assemble and furnish the flats and during the last weekend the first Ukrainian citizens have already moved in. We believe that our contribution will be useful and maybe inspire many others who can also help.
