DEAR COLLEAGUE
On behalf of our society I would like to invite you to join us for the 3rd PANNONIA CONGRESS OF PATHOLOGY. The event will be held in Bled, Slovenia, from 15 to 17 May, 2014. Slovenia, one of the pannonian countries, lies at the heart of Europe, where the Alps meet the Dinaric Karst , and the Mediterranean shakes hands with the Pannonian plains. It is sometimes called the picture-perfect paradise due to its varied geography which encompasses lush, green forests, hills with vineyards, crystal clear mountain lakes, fairytale castles, mysterious cave underworlds, many natural and landscape parks, rivers and the sea. Bled is renowned for its alpine lake with the island in the middle, resembling a cell with the nucleus. It is a pearl of the Julian Alps that attracts thousands of tourists from all over the world each year. It is an ideal place to recharge your batteries needed for the busy everyday life.

We are looking forward to welcoming you for a challenging scientific discussion and a friendly gathering in the idyllic Bled resort!
