The price of the ticket is 32 CZK, the tickets can be purchased inside airport hall in ticket vending machines (it might be possible to use a bank card) or in small shops.

  • At Nadrazi Veleslavin switch to underground line A (green line) and continue all the way to "Mustek".
  • After you leave the undergound car, proceed to the exit on your right side, by elevator up, then again to the right, upstairs and then you will stand at the tram stop (on the left side you will see the square "Vaclavske namesti"). Take tram 24 to the stop "Albertov".
  • Now continue straight, following the direction of the tram and after crossing the traffic lights and a church, turn left to Horska street (see the map). Our building is a small white one.
