Bata Information Centre is a department of the Library of Tomas Bata University in Zlin. It was founded in December 2008 at the initiative of the university management. It gives the public an overview of Tomas Bata’s personality and all aspects of the Bata company in Zlin, in Czechoslovakia and around the world from 1894 to the present.


These contacts refer to university departments, not to the Bata Company.
