The glass door at the entrance should be open until 9 a.m. If the door is locked, please go to the front desk (turn right just after the main entrance) and ask them to let you in for the QTLeap workshop/meeting. If there is any problem, ask the front desk to call ÚFAL secretariat at ext. 4278, or if that does not help, use Jan Hajic's email and/or cellphone (see contacts above).
To get from the Prague Václav Havel Airport (Ruzyně) to the conference venue:
With a lot of luggage, the cab is probably the preferred way to go.
Some of the suggested hotels within walking distance:
You can also rent an appartment, e.g., in Vlašská street, ca. 7 minutes from the Venue.
Not so nearby but cheap and known to be OK: Hotel Krystal.
Prague has an excellent public transport network that includes Metro (subway), trams, buses, suburban trains, and river ferries. It is the recommended means of transportation around the city. It operates 5am-midnight, with some night trams running overnight. It is quite reliable and safe (safe to the extent as any capital city may be – beware of pickpockets!).
Basic ticket prices (more details can be found on the Prague Transport Co. website):
Transfers are allowed among regularly scheduled routes within the city limits and within the max. time bought. Tickets have to be stamped upon entry to the first car/bus. The unlimited tickets pay off only if you take more than 4 trips per day.
Tickets must be bought before boarding, either at ticket machines (most of them accept CZK coins only) at some tram stops and most metro stations, or at some newspaper stands. One such newspaper stand is directly at Malostranské náměstí, and a ticket machine is at the tram stop at Malostranské náměstí.
The local currency is Czech Crown (Česká Koruna, CZK). The exchange rate was about 25 CZK for 1 USD and 26 CZK for EUR in March 2015.
When exchanging currency, always check for commission charge and/or worse rates for lower amounts exchanged. Depending on your home bank, the best way to get Czech Crowns might be using an ATM.
Prague city center is full of restaurants and souvenir shops, but it might be a bit tricky to find basic groceries and other everyday stuff at reasonable prices. Here are a few shops nearby the venue:
The usual car rental companies (Avis, Hertz, Budget, Europcar, Sixt) and many other national ones are in the ground floor of the Prague Airport Terminal 1 building, and also in the Airport Parking garage "C".
