Arriving to EUROCOMB'23 Venue

  • By plane: Prague airport is one of the major airports in central Europe with many direct flights from major European cities and some direct flights from large cities around the World. To get from the airport you can use:

    • Public transportation: To get from the airport use bus no. 119 to metro A (green line) station Nádraží Veleslavín direction Skalka or Depo Hostivař. At Malostranská stop change to tram 12, 15, 20 or 22 and get off at the next stop Malostranské náměstí.

    • Taxi: You can pre-order private taxi (or shared shuttle) which takes you from the airport to Malostranské náměstí. The price for private taxi is approx. 700 CZK, the shuttle price according their price list, but the price per person decreases if you order it for more than one. The shuttle driver will pick you up with a name plate at the airport.

    • Other taxi: The price from the airport to Malostranské náměstí should be about 550 CZK and might increase if you get queued in a traffic jam (about 7 CZK/min of waiting). To avoid trouble we advise to ask the driver to estimate the price before you start the ride. If the driver knows that you are aware of the expected price, you might get a fair ride. Also you can try app.liftago.

Things to be Aware of

Since Prague is a major tourist destination, it is unfortunately unavoidable that certain tourist traps exist, which you should be aware of. You can find a whole list of YouTube videos by the Honest Guide on scams found in Prague. Generally speaking Prague is a very welcoming city, but you probably should know about the following potential traps.

  • At the airport: It is advisable not to exchange money, or to withdraw money at the airport (tickets for public transportation can be bought at a ticket machine at the bus stop, which accepts credit cards). The exchange offices at the airport often have terrible exchange rates (see also the note about exchanging money below). Many ATMs at the airport will try to fool you into withdrawing large amounts of cash, by only offering huge values. Remember that 1 Euro is approximately 25 or 27 CZK, and that Prague is still quite cheap compared to other European cities (for instance, lunch prices are between 150 and 250 CZK). If you need cash, it is recommended to either exchange or withdraw money in the city (see comments below), or bring it with. Most places in Prague will accept major credit cards though.

  • Exchanging money: Especially in the very touristy old town of Prague, some exchange offices will try to offer you terrible exchange rates, for example 15 CZK for 1 Euro, while 1 Euro is worth about 25-27 CZK. Always check the exchange rate thoroughly: it should be at around 24 CZK for 1 Euro. Also, never exchange cash in the streets, as you will most likely receive some completely worthless currency instead of Czech crowns! We recommend eXchange, which has fair rates.

  • Withdrawing money: At the airport some ATMs only offer to withdraw huge amounts of cash, which you will most likely not need (Prague is still quite cheap compared with other European cities). In the city you can come across ATMs that try to convince you that you should use their exchange rate instead of your bank's rate: you will get a choice between using the rate of the bank that the ATM belongs to and your bank, but the button for your bank will be colored red while the ATM's bank will be colored green to indicate that the latter is the supposedly better choice. However, this is often not the case, as the ATM's bank will have a worse rate.

  • Taxis: Some taxi drivers will try to charge you horrendous rates, e.g., 5000 CZK instead of 500 CZK. It is recommended to try and avoid getting a taxi on the street (it's advisable to call one of the major Prague Taxi services) and if you have to, try to negotiate the price in advance. The maximum price designated by the city council is 36 CZK per kilometer.

  • Shops and restaurants: In the old town area, some restaurants and corner stores will be quite overpriced. It is recommended to always check the prices before deciding to buy something at a store or ordering at a restaurant.
