Transport from the airport
Participants are asked to make their own travel arrangements. From the airport, the National Technical Library is comfortably reached by bus or taxi.
The buses of the line 119 leave the Airport approximately every 10-20 minutes between 04:00 and 23:30 from bus stations at both Terminal 1 - exit F and Terminal 2 - exit E and takes you next to the entry to the metro (underground line A terminus Dejvická). The ride takes about 25 minutes. You have to buy the ticket before boarding the bus at ticket vending machines in the terminal hall or at the newsstand at 26 CZK. You can use also the Airport Express - AE line that terminates at the same place, departs from the airport each 30 minutes and rides non-stop from the airport to the metro; tickets at 30 CZK at the driver.
We recommend you to take a yellow taxi (AAA or 111) that can be found immediately outside of both terminals. It takes about 10 minutes to arrive to Dejvice at about 400 CZK.
