Faculty Building

The venue of TLT 16 (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, and in fact it is the largest baroque church in Prague (the right-hand picture).

Prague can be easily reached 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 AAA or 111 yellow taxis. Contact counters are located in arrival halls of both terminals.

The fare should not go over CZK 600 (USD 25). 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.

Use public transport

The preferred route is the following:

  1. Take the bus no. 119 (direction Nádraží Veleslavín) to the terminal stop Nádraží Veleslavín.
  2. Then take tram no. 20 (direction Sídliště Barrandov) and get off after 12 stops at Malostranské náměstí.

The journey takes about 50 minutes in total, the fare is CZK 32 (ca. USD 1.30). 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.

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. 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.
