Eclipsing binaries play very important role in astronomical studies. They can be perceived as unique astrophysical laboratories to test our knowledge of wide range of physical and astrophysical phenomena such as stellar evolution, processes in stellar interior and theory of relativity. Moreover, they indicate distance scale in the Universe. Photometry is the main way how to study stars. We will use photometric observations obtained at Czech and Chinese observatories together with available new photometric and spectroscopic data. Detailed and sophisticated analysis of own observations and other data allow us to detect and study many subtle processes in binaries as orbital period changes, stellar oscillations, accretion disc's activities, light time effect, apsidal motions etc.
