Mariánská kasárna in Budějovice, home of Švejk's k.u.k. Infanterieregiment Nr. 91 until 1 June 1915.

The novel The Good Soldier Švejk refers to a number of institutions and firms, public as private. These were until 15 September 2013 categorised as 'Places'. This only partly makes sense as this type of entity can not be always be associated with fixed geographical points, in the way that for instance cities, mountains and rivers can. This new page contains military and civilian institutions (including army units, regiments etc.), organisations, hotels, public houses, newspapers and magazines.

The line between this page and "Places" is blurred, churches do for instance rarely change location, but are still included here. 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: Odvodní komise and Bendlovka are not unequivocal geographical terms so they will from now on appear on this page.

The names are colour coded according to their role in the plot, illustrated by these examples: U kalicha as a location where the plot takes place, k.u.k. Kriegsministerium mentioned in the narrative, Pražské úřední listy as part of a dialogue, and, Stoletá kavárna mentioned in an anecdote.
