Getting to Prague

Arriving By Air

Arriving at Prague Airport, you can catch the 119 bus to Nadrazi Veleslavin.

The cost of a bus ticket to Dejvicka is CZK24. There are ATMs and two reasonably priced Billa supermarkets at the airport if you are looking for a simple way to get change for purchasing a ticket from the machines at the bus stop. It is also possible to purchase a bus ticket via SMS.

Arriving By Coach

A more economical (and environmentally friendly) alternative to air travel to Prague would be the Student Agency coach network. To find out if a route serves your city, see the Student Agency website.

Arriving By Rail

The main railway station is Hlavni Nadrazi in the city centre – it is connected to the Red (A) metro line. To get to Dejvicka, you would need to travel to Muzeum, and then change to the Green (C) line. The total journey time should be less than 15 minutes. Alternatively, you could catch the number 26 tram to Dejvicka from outside the station and travel there directly (although a little slower). The journey takes about 20 minutes.

Travelling By Bus

The 109 and 149 buses run every 15 minutes on a Saturday, leaving from Dejvicka and stopping at the Cinska bus stop opposite the Crowne Plaza Hotel before travelling on to the Roztocka bus stop nearest the school. This is a request stop (Na Znamenie), so you must remember to press the stop button near the door to signal to the driver that you wish to get off.

It is also possible to catch the 340 and 350 buses – but these travel far les frequently (about once per hour at the weekends).

You can obtain up to date travel information about any part of Pragues extensive public transport network from the DPP website. Tickets are CZK24 for short journeys and CZK32 for longer journeys by bus, tram, metro, trains within the municipal area, the funicular railway or ferry across the river. You can also purchase passes for one or three days (CZK110 and CZK310) if you intend to make several trips during your stay.
