The UAE has the Czech Republic to thank for supplying its long-standing appetite for chandeliers and glassware, which the European nation has been making for hundreds of years.
This history of glassmaking will take centre stage at the Czech Republic Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, which features a large-scale installation proudly showing off its centuries-old craft.
Equally impressive will be the technology on show that promises to “transform a desert into an oasis”.
Solar-powered technology that can suck water vapour from the air and turn barren deserts into fertile lands will be exhibited. It has tremendous benefits for sunshine-rich nations facing food security issues due to a lack of arable land on which to raise crops.
A restaurant serving some of the most famous cuisine served up in the Czech Republic, such as goulash, is sure to be another mouth-watering attraction.
The pavilion will be located in the Sustainability District and has been designed by architecture house Formosa AA.
