How to get to the venue

FROM THE AIRPORT

Possibly the best way to get to the city is by public transport buses (in white-red color scheme) which depart frequently and are relatively comfortable. They depart from in front of the arrival halls and so are easy to find.

Tickets can be bought from an info point (Infocentrum) of the Prague Public Transport Company (Dopravní podnik) in the arrival hall, or from yellow ticket machines at the bus stop, or (for a bit higher price) from the driver.

Many of you will probably take the bus No. 119 and transfer to the metro trains at the Dejvická bus stop (the final stop). Note that there is a lift just behind the entrance to the metro station.

Taxis are many times more expensive, but a good choice if your luggage is particularly heavy or large. There are only two taxi companies licensed to operate in the airport - AAA and Fix - see the
airport's website.


FROM THE TRAIN STATION

The venue can be reached by taking the metro line C (red) from the stop Hlavní nádraží, changing to line A (green) at the stop Muzeum, and taking line A to the stop Staroměstská.
