Public transportation

Prague has one of the best public transportation systems in Europe. The metro, trams and buses are used by two-thirds of Prague's population and cover the majority of the city and outskirts. The metro especially makes getting around town a breeze since it enables you to cover long distances in a matter of minutes. If you can't continue to your destination on foot, you'll be able to catch a tram or bus from near the subway station.

How to get from Prague airport to congress venue

Transport from the airport to the venue of the 2022 IAML Congress:
Take municipal bus no. 119 to Nádraží Veleslavín. Once there, take Line A of the Metro to the Staroměstská station.
Travel time: 31 minutes, ticket price: 40 CZK. Tickets can be purchased in following ways:
  • In information centers and yellow vending machines at metro stations
  • In every tram (only by contactless credit/debit card) and bus (only from driver, it is slightly more expensive)
  • In newspapers shops
  • In the new mobile application PID Lítačka

We recommend that you find the public transport stop near to your planned accommodation. You can also find other transport links here.

Taxi is much more expensive than public transport and it is only a little faster. It is reasonable to use taxis only for night arrivals/departures, when bus line 119 does not operate.

Only official airport taxis are allowed to operate at the airport. You can find taxis in front of the arrival halls of both terminals. The fare from the airport to the conference venue/offered hotels could be expected to be around 600 CZK (a higher fare is possible depending on the current traffic situation). 

How to get from main railway station to congress venue

We recommend using public transportation instead of taxis: it is cheaper and usually faster due to heavy traffic. The main railway station "Hlavní nádraží" as well as the conference venue are situated close to metro stations.
From the railway station "Hlavní Nádraží" take metro line C (red line) to "Muzeum" station. There change to line A (green line) and continue to "Staroměstská" station.

The journey takes about ten minutes and you can use a 30 CZK ticket (this ticket is valid for thirty minutes after validating it in the metro station) or a 40 CZK ticket (valid for ninety minutes).
