    Conference Venue



    Czech Technical University in Prague

    Accommodation is recommended at Masaryk Dormitory (https://www.masarykovakolej.cz/)

    The Masaryk Dormitory is situated in a strategic location in Dejvice, Prague 6, just 20 minutes away from Prague Vaclav Havel international airport, with excellent public-transport access to the city centre, and with good motorway links.

    The Masaryk Dormitory was founded in 1925, thanks to moral and financial support provided by Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, the first president of Czechoslovakia. It was built according to the design of Antonín Engel in Sadova Street, nowadays called Thákurova Street, in parallel with the preparations for constructing the adjacent campus of the Czech Technical University in Prague (www.cvut.cz).

    Get Around in Prague


    Walking
    Walking is the best way to see the centre of the city. Indeed, much of the centre is closed to vehicular traffic, meaning walking is sometimes the only option for getting around. Cars and vehicles are prohibited from crossing Charles Bridge. Cobblestones and the long hill on the approach to Prague Castle play havoc with heels, though. The best bet is to opt for comfortable walkers or sneakers.

    Metro
    Fast and frequent, good for visiting outlying areas or covering longer distances. Runs 5 am to midnight.

    Tram
    Extensive network of routes, best way for getting around shorter distances between neighbourhoods. Full service from 5am to 12.30am; limited service through the night.

    Bus
    Buses are not much use in the city centre, except for travelling to the airport or in areas not covered by tram or metro. They run from 4.30am to around midnight, plus limited night service.

    Tickets & Passes
    A valid ticket or day pass is required for travel on all metros, trams and buses. Tickets and passes are sold from machines at metro stations and some tram stops (coins only), as well as at newspaper kiosks and DPP information offices at the Můstek, Anděl, Hradčanská and Nádraží Veleslavín stations.

  • You must validate (punch) your ticket before descending on the metro escalators or on entering a tram or bus (day passes must be stamped the first time you use them). For the metro, you’ll see stamping machines at the top of the escalators. In trams and buses there will be a stamping machine in the vehicle by the door.

  • A full-price ticket costs 32Kč per adult. A discounted ticket of 16Kč is available to children aged six to 15 years and seniors aged 65 to 70 (kids under six ride free). Full-price tickets are valid for 90 minutes of unlimited travel, including transfers.

  • For shorter journeys, buy short-term tickets that are valid for 30 minutes of unlimited travel. These cost 24/12Kč per adult/child and senior. You’ll also need a 16Kč ticket if you're carrying a dog or for each large suitcase or backpack (more than 25cm x 45cm x 70cm); a 24-hour or three-day pass includes one such item of luggage.

  • Bikes (metro only) and prams travel free.

  • Day passes are available for one or three days and make sense if you're planning on staying more than a few hours. One-day passes cost 110/55Kč per adult/child and senior; three-day passes cost 310Kč (no discounts available for children or seniors).

  • While ticket inspections are infrequent, getting caught without a validated ticket can be expensive. The fine if paid on the spot is 800Kč, or 1500Kč if paid later at a police station.

  • Attractions in Prague


  • Prague Castle (Pražský hrad)
    This is the biggest ancient castle in the world, according to Guinness World Records, and rises like a dream above the city offering beautiful views of the areas below. Also on site is the St. Vitus Cathedral with its lookout tower, the Castle Picture Gallery, several palaces and museums and the beautiful Royal Garden, among others. You can also watch the Presidential Guard, and the changeover of the guards on duty on the hour. A Prague castle ticket is 350 CZK and an audio guide costs a further 350 CZK.

  • Charles Bridge(Karlův most)
    It connects Old Town with Lesser Town. Its construction started in the 14th century and it is one of Prague's most beautiful structures. During the day, it is a bustling place of trade and entertainment, as musicians busk and artists sell their paintings and jewelry.

  • Old Town (Staré město)
    Prague's historic centre includes numerous historic buildings and monuments, most notably the famed Astronomical Clock (Orloj), the pure GothicTýn Church, the mural-covered Storch building, and the Jan Hus monument. Nearby, the Estate Theatre is a neoclassical theatre where Mozart's opera Don Giovanni was first performed. Old Town features many historical churches (St. James Church, Church of Our Lady before Týn among others) and some other interesting historical buildings like the Old Town Hall.

  • Josefov
    This historic Jewish ghetto is interesting for its well preserved synagogues. The Old New Synagogue (Czech: Staronová synagoga) is Europe's oldest active synagogue and it is rumoured to be the resting place of the famed Prague Golem. Another interesting synagogue is the Spanish Synagogue, a highly ornamental building of Moorish style. Other attractions include the Old Jewish Cemetery, which is the oldest in Europe, and Kafka's house. The Old New Synagogue is NOT a part of the Jewish museum, so if you wish to see everything, it is recommended that you buy a combined pass to all of the Jewish attractions for 480 CZK.

  • New Town (Nové město)
    New Town was established as an extension of Old Town in the 14th century, though much of the area has now been reconstructed. The main attraction here is Wenceslas Square, a rectangular commercial square with many stalls, shops and restaurants. At the top of the square is the National Museum which is well worth a look (see below). Midway down this historic boulevard, one finds trendy discos and Art Nouveau hotels, as well as quaint parks and arcades, while just off the beaten path are some wonderful panoramic views (Henry Tower), romantic restaurants and the dazzling, Disney-colored Jubilee Synagogue.

  • Lesser Town (Malá strana)
    Across the Vltava River from the city centre and leading to the castle, this quarter also offers beautiful streets and churches (of which St. Nicholas Church is the most renowned). The Lennon Wall, which used to be a source of irritation to the communist regime, is also found here, near a Venetian-like canal with water wheel and close to the Charles Bridge.
