Travel information

Transport in the Czech Republic
The Czech University of Life Sciences Prague is located on the north-western border of Prague, close to the Prague airport and with a very good access to the Prague city centre. The Prague Airport is located approximately 10 km away from the city centre and 5 km from University Campus. Prague has an international connection with all the main cities of Europe and other continents. 

Czech Railways provides clean, efficient train service to almost every part of the country. Travel is cheap compared to Western standards. 

Long-distance coach connections tend to be faster, more frequent and marginally cheaper than train connections, and remoter locations require fewer transfers. 

Transport to the congress venue 
The transport from the Prague airport or Railway station to the congress venue will not be provided. Please use the city transport or taxi according the travel information.

Directions from the Vaclav Havel Airport Prague to CZU Prague
Vaclav Havel Airport Prague is located 10 km west of the city centre. You can make your way from the Airport to our campus by city bus, airport shuttle, or taxi.

The city bus number 119, which brings passengers from the airport to Nádraží Veleslavín metro (underground) station is the cheapest option. The bus ticket costs only CZK 32 and is valid for 90 minutes (see details on a ticket), including any connecting public transport in Prague (buses, trams or metro). The 119 bus ends at Nádraží Veleslavín metro station, travel time to Nádraží Veleslavín is about 17 minutes, with interval time 5 to 20 minutes (depending the hour). At Nádraží Veleslavín station, you get on a metro and travel two more stations until Dejvická metro station. At Dejvická take a bus number 107 or 147 and travel to the bus stop Zemědělská univerzita. The stop is announced on the bus public address system and you can also read it on the digital display. This journey takes around 10 minutes.

There are three more bus line options how everybody can get from the airport to the city centre. Bus 100 goes to Zličín (yellow line – line B), bus 191 goes to Na Knížecí/Anděl (yellow line – line B), and Airport Express goes to Hlavní nádraží (red line – line C). However, these buses go further from the university campus. Please see the travel fares of these buses on the official website of the Prague transportation (http://www.dpp.cz/en/daytime-operation/)

Taxi is the most expensive though fast way of getting to our university. The price for the way from Airport to the congress venue should be about 350 - 400 CZK (16 Euro). If you choose to travel from the Airport to our university by taxi, insist that the taxi driver travels via the town of Horoměřice (the fare is around 350 CZK). The other way is via Dejvická (Dejvice), it is much longer and costs about double!
