The novel The Good Soldier Švejk refers to a number of institutions and firms, public as private. These have until 15 September 2013 been categorised as 'Places'. This only partly makes sense as this type of entity can not be always be associated with fixed geographical point, in the way that for instance cities, mountains and rivers can. This new page contains military and civilian institutions (including army units, regiments etc.), hotels, public houses, newspapers and magazines.
The line between this page and "Places" is blurred, but the idea with this section is to include entities that are not necessarily located on a fixed spot on earth. Therefore Prague and Vienna will still be found in the "Places" database, because these have constant co-ordinates. On the other hand institutions may change location: Kriegsministerium and U kalicha are not unequivocal geographical terms so they will from now on appear on this page.

|Temple of Artemis|
Temple of Artemis is mentioned indirectly in the author's description of Herostratus, "he who set fire to the temple of the goddess in Ephesus".
Temple of Artemis was a temple in Ephesus, regarded as one of the seven wonders of the world. It was raised in the honour of the goddess Artemis. The temple burnt down in 356 BC (Herostatos), but was rebuilt after. Today there are only ruins left.
Quote from the novel
[Úvod] On nezapálil chrám bohyně v Efesu, jako to udělal ten hlupák Herostrates, aby se dostal do novin a školních čítanek.
