It consists of theoretical lectures of systematic classification, ecology and taxonomic criteria of Cyanobacteria, and of microscopic sessions with practical identification. Determination of participant's own material is possible.
One day is dedicated to excursion. Participants may choose between a "cultural trip" to famous medieval town and castle Český Krumlov or a "adventure trip", a canoe trip through the valley of Vltava river.
