Faculty Building

The venue of DeriMo 2019 (the Computer Science School building, see the left-hand picture below - on the horizon, the Prague Castle (Hradčany) can be seen as well) is in the center of Prague, in the Lesser Town. The building itself has been built in today's shape in the 17th century, and it served as a jesuit monastery. It has a rectangular shape with a small yard in the middle; three wings now belong to the University, and the fourth to the (roman-catholic) church. The church is the largest baroque church in Prague (the right-hand picture).

Travelling to the Venue

Prague can be easily reached by air from popular gateways to Europe including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Zurich, Helsinki, Rome, Dubai etc. In addition, Prague can be reached by train or car from nearby cities such as Berlin, Dresden, Vienna and Munich.

By Plane

To get from the Václav Havel Airport Prague (Ruzyně) to the conference venue:

Take an airport taxi

We suggest to take ONLY the official taxis. Contact counters are located in arrival halls of both terminals.

The fare should not go over CZK 600 (USD 27-30). Taxi drivers should always issue a signed receipt. Ask the driver about the cost beforehand. They usually accept CCs (ask at the stand and the driver), CZK and EUR (not a very favorable exchange rate), but not USD (or least they are not supposed to).

Use public transport

The preferred route is the following:

  1. Take the bus no. 119 (direction Nádraží Veleslavín) to the terminal stop Divoká Šárka.
  2. Then take tram no. 20 (direction Sídliště Barrandov) and get off at Malostranské náměstí.

The journey takes about 50 minutes in total, the fare is CZK 32 (ca. USD 1.45). You can view the journey on Google Maps along with other options (note that special, higher fare applies on the AE bus line and on Student Agency buses). More information about public transport in Prague can be found below.

By Train or Bus

Taking the train is a convenient option when travelling, e.g., from Berlin or Vienna. Night trains are also a good option esp. from more distant cities like Budapest or Warsaw, but they are becoming rare. All long-distance trains arrive to the main railway station (Hlavní nádraží). Trains arriving from Berlin/Dresden stop at the Holešovice station, too. Most long-distance buses arrive at the Florenc bus station.

  3. Then change to THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION on line A (green line, direction Dejvická) and get off at Malostranská (4 stops).
