Dear participants, here are some tips for accommodations in the centre of Prague:
How to get to Prague
If you would like to fly to the Czech Republic, it is not a problem! You can easily find cheap flights straight to Prague. There are plenty of low cost companies flying to the heart of Europe, for example: Wizz Air, Vueling, EasyJet and RyanAir. However, you can also use companies like Czech airlines, Lufthansa, KLM, etc. We recommend buying tickets in advance.
If you are afraid of airplanes or you don't want to spend money on the airplane ticket, you can take a bus to Prague. If you don´t mind longer travelling, you can choose between many companies offering cheap bus tickets, for example: Flix Bus - offering cheapest tickets from different cities of Europe to Prague (ticket prices starting at approx. 10 euros - depending on the departure city), or Studentagency and Eurolines (ticket prices starting at 20-30 euros).
Transport from the airport
There are two options:
1. The bus 119, which leaves from both terminals 1 and 2.
It takes you to the metro station Nádraží Veleslavín (line A), where you board in the direction of Depo Hostivař and travel to the station Můstek, where you transfer to the line B. From Můstek, go one station in the direction of Černý most to the station called Náměstí Republiky. Kampus Hybernská is located 5 minute walk from this station.
2. The bus 100, which leaves from both terminals 1 and 2.
It takes you to the metro station Zličín. From this station, the metro takes you in the direction of Černý most. You get off in the station Náměstí Republiky. Kampus Hybernská is located 5 minute walk from this station.
For both of these ways of transport, buy the 32 CZK ticket.
TRANSPORT TO THE VENUE (HYBERNSKÁ)
We suggest downloading the Google Maps app, where you can put „FROM“ „TO“ and choose „public transport“. This app will exactly show you time where bus/tram leaves, where is the station, how long you have to walk from the station to the venue etc.
From HLAVNÍ NÁDRAŽÍ (MAIN STATION)
The tram station is 3 minutes away from the building.
From main station you can go to MASARYKOVO NÁDRAŽÍ or NÁMĚSTÍ REPUBLIKY and from there you have to walk to the venue. Trams that go this way are: 15, 26.
From FLORENC (bus station)
Here you can choose trams 3 or 24 to MASARYKOVO NÁDRAŽÍ.
Or use a metro „B“ which goes straight to NÁMĚSTÍ REPUBLIKY.
- The ID card, Passport, and Visa.
- Money to cover your expenses. The Czech Republic does not use euro but Czech crown (1 euro = approx. 25 CZK). You can exchange your money in your home country or in Prague either at money exchange offices or ATM. In any case, always look for places that offer at least 24 CZK for 1 euro! Credit cards are also accepted in most places in Prague.
(To give you a hint about how much money you will need: Usual lunch or dinner costs around 100 -150 CZK in a standard eatery or a fast food restaurant. You’ll also have to buy a public transport ticket, which costs: 110 CZK for a 24-hour ticket, 310 CZK for a 3-day ticket.)
- Don’t forget to take warm clothes with you, it tends to get quite cold in Prague in the autumn, and some comfortable and waterproof shoes – it might be rainy.
- You will get a notebook and a pencil for note-taking from us, so you don’t need to bring your own
- A formal wear/costume for the social event on the last night. (More information here.)
- Own reusable cup, food box etc. is very welcome!
Travelling to the Czech Republic does not require a visa if you come from the states of EU, Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein and most of other European countries.
You need to apply for a visa if you come from:
Citizens of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Moldova, Montenegro, Macedonia and Serbia do not need a visa only if they are holders of biometric passports.
You need to apply for the (short-term) Schengen visa. We recommend applying at least one month in advance! For more details, inform yourself at the respective Embassy of the Czech Republic.

Do you have a few days to spend in Prague before the Conference?
Here are few tips:
Wenceslas square is one of the most important and famous city squares in Prague. On the uphill end of the square, one of the symbols of Prague is located– the Statue of Saint Wenceslas, which depicts Bohemian Duke Wenceslas sitting on a horse. Another landmark is the National Museum Building, located also on the uphill end.
This historic bridge over the Vltava river is one of the most famous Prague monuments. It was built in 1357 and is visited by thousands of people every day. It connects the historical parts of Prague and offers a beautiful view of the historical city.
Prague Astronomical Clock
Prague astronomical clock, also called “Orloj”, is a medieval astronomical clock mounted on The Old Town Hall tower. It is the oldest astronomical clock in the world still operating. Every hour between 9 am and 11 pm, moving figures appear in “The Walk of the Apostles”, a show of moving sculptures of apostles and another figures.
John Lennon Wall is near Charles Bridge. It’s colourfully painted wall, symbolizing the tomb of the renowned leading legendary band The Beatles, but it is also a place where people expressed their views and protested against the communist regime.
Letná – metronom
The metronome is the kinetic sculpture of Vratislav Novák, installed in 1991. It is symbolized by the inexorable flow of time and a warning reminder of the past. From the metronome you can enjoy the beautiful panorama of Prague and its bridges.
Vyšehrad's view is the most common reason why people visit this place. But Vyšehrad is not only an amazing view of Prague, but it is also an ideal place to relax, sport or explore history.
