Accomodation

As for the accommodation, we can help to reserve rooms for you at our dormitory – these are hotel type rooms with kitchenette and bathroom, price is around 500,-CZK/night. The dormitory is about 20 minutes by tram from the university and from downtown.

If you prefer to stay in a hotel, we recommend hotel Ariston or Ibis Old Town nearby the VSE, or hotel Central, which is more centrally located but still within a reasonable distance to the university.

 

Public transport in Prague

Prague has very good public transportation systems. The metro, trams and buses cover the majority of the city and outskirts. To move around town, we recommend using public transport over driving or taking a taxi. If you insist on taking taxi, consider downloading an app such as TaxifyLiftago or Uber to avoid unexpectedly high charges.

Tickets for public transport

You need to have a valid ticket before you get on the bus/tram/metro. You can buy transfer tickets for 30 minutes (24 CZK), 90 minutes (32 CZK), 24 hours (110 CZK) or 72 hours (310 CZK).

  • Paper one-off tickets are sold in the Prague Public Transit Co. info centresTicket vending machinesAdvanced Sales and selected wholesalers (Relay branches, news stands).

From the airport to the Prague city centre

The connection between Václav Havel Airport Prague and Prague city centre is provided by public transport bus lines which operate at regular few-minute intervals. Bus stops are located directly in front of terminals. To get to Prague city centre we recommend taking the 119 bus (Terminal 1/Terminal 2 – Veleslavín train/metro station) and changing to metro Line A. You will need to purchase the 90 minutes ticket (32 CZK) before boarding the bus.

Or you can use the Airport Express bus, which connect the Main Railway Station (Praha Hlavni Nadrazi) with Václav Havel Airport Prague. There are no other stops. AE bus runs daily from 5 a.m. till 9 p.m. in regular interval of 30 minutes. Tickets can be bought directly from the bus driver (60 CZK) or online (5 EUR). Please note that usual Prague public transport tickets cannot be used in the AE bus line.
