Microcosm & CERN
In this world's largest center of nuclear research, there are several possibilities of discovering the world of 7,000 scientists from 80 countries. By reserving in advance at Microcosm & CERN, three-four weeks for individuals and three-four months for groups, a half-day visit to the world's largest research center Cern can be arranged. The visit starts with an introduction given by one of the guides, followed by a journey of 100 metres below the earth to see one of the experiments on the LEP particle accelerator. It is not necessary to make reservations for the Microcosm exhibit, in which it is possible to view videos, models, original equipment and computer games. Check out the website for more information.
