    tr. 5. kvetna 166
    289 11 Pecky
    Czech Republic
    what's tr.?
    what's kvetna?
    what's pecky?

    thank you!

    tř. 5. května = Avenue of May 5th

    tř. is short for třída (= avenue, boulevard)

    5. května = May 5th (Prague uprising against the Nazis)

    Pečky (www, map) is a town in Central Bohemia.

    And as for the address, it is this company, right?

    You're probably baffled by the fact that the street is named after a date. This is a common occurence in the Czech Republic, though.
