For over 5000 years, an underground war has played out between state civilization and free society.

This war is not merely a physical one, but a spiritual war.

Today the struggle continues. Life evolves and moves upwards through the efforts of society. The state as a parasite harvests this human energy for its own survival.

But grand events are playing out. The pendulum swings towards freedom. This is the hour. Cyber-guerillas rise up!

Paralelní Polis

Paralelní Polis is a one-­of-­a-­kind nonprofit organization that brings together art, social sciences, and modern technologies. The ideas of liberty, independence, innovative thinking, and the development of society are the main underlying foundations of the project.

The project intends to remain state-free as it operates entirely without support from the government, and most of the funds come from voluntary contributions of our donors and partly from commercial activities such as running a unique co­working space and the world’s first bitcoin-­only cafe.

It was founded by members of a contemporary-­art group Ztohoven, and Slovak and Czech hacker­spaces. Its main goal is to promote economic, social, and digital freedom. We try to be a vocal voice of liberty in order to shape the public discourse and ultimately work towards a freer future.


HCPP is the flagship event of Paralelní Polis, which has been regularly attended by over 500 fans and IT experts from all over the world. HCPP is held annually in Prague on the first weekend of October.

Since 2014, our crew has brought to you a number of unforgettable events, like:

Black Swan Security Congress


Hackers Congress Paralelní Polis

Pizza Day Prague

Prague DeFi Summit
