Getting to the Clarion Congress Hotel

The international airport Prague Ruzyne is located 15 km from the city centre. The most comfortable way to reach the Clarion Congress Hotel is by taxi. The price of a taxi from the airport to the venue or to hotels should be about 25 Euro.
Another possibility is to use public transport. Take bus number 119 from the airport (the bus stop is in the middle of the car park outside the arrival hall, just walk straight and look for the signs) to the last stop "Nadrazi Veleslavin" which takes you to the metro. Then change to the metro green line A and go to station "Mustek". You have to change here to the yellow metro line B and go to station "Vysocanska" (direction Cerny Most). The total traveling time from the airport to the Clarion Congress Hotel by public transport should be about 1 hour.

Most of the social event locations and all recommended hotels are in the city centre.

Although it is easy to walk almost everywhere within the city of Prague, visitors can also use the public transport: http://www.dpp.cz/en/.

BY TRAIN

Prague can be easily reached by rail. The terminals of the Central Railway Station and the Holesovice Railway Station are at a Metro station of the red line C. To get to the venue, go to station "Florenc", then change to yellow line "B" and go to station "Vysocanska" (direction Cerny Most). All international trains arrive at Praha hlavní nádraží (the central station, abbreviated to Praha hl.n.) which has connections with Metro Line C.

Prague has two main railway stations. Praha Hlavní nádraží ('main station', tel. 224 61 52 49) is architecturally fabulous (in Jugendstil style) although you won’t know it until you exit its underground nightmare. Getting to town involves one stop on the metro to Muzeum or a walk up busy Wilsonova.
The second station, Praha Holešovice (tel. 224 61 58 65), is used by trains on the main Berlin - Prague - Vienna/Bratislava route. It is three stops on the metro to Muzeum.

BY CAR

Prague has highway connections from five major directions. The highway connection from Prague to the border of the Czech Republic is available only in two directions - southeast and southwest. The south-western highway (D5; international E50) leads through Pilsen (Plzeň) to Germany. The D5 highway continues in Germany as A6. Riding from the state border to Prague takes about an hour and a half (160 km). The south-eastern highway (D1) is the Czech Republic's oldest and most used highway. It leads through Brno to Bratislava in Slovakia. It offers a good connection to Vienna, Budapest and all traffic from the east. It runs for 250km, and usually takes over two hours. To the east you can take the newly completed D11 (E67), which goes to Hradec Kralove. It leads to Poland.
Prague suffers from heavy traffic and on week days the main streets are one big traffic jam. Moreover, Prague still doesn't have a complete highway outer circuit. It is suggested to use the P+R (park and ride) parking places, where you can park your car for a very small fee and use public transport. The P+Rs are situated near all highways and are well marked. Note that parking in most residential streets in and around Prague city centre (even after dark) without a valid permit will result in a parking fine. In particular, avoid blue-marked areas which are parking-restricted area if you don't want your car to get towed away within the hour.
