From the airport
The distance from the Václav Havel Airport Prague is 19,5 kilometres (12 miles) and 28 Airlines provide 150–200 international arrivals daily. A taxi ride from the airport to the Prague Congress Centre will take approximately 30–45 minutes and costs about 25 EUR. You can also travel by public transport. Go by bus No. 119 to the underground station “Nádraží Veleslavín” and carry on to the station “Museum”. Then change to line C and go to the station “Vyšehrad”. The PCC is just next to this station. You will need to buy a ticket for CZK 32 for this journey.
From the railway station
Transport from Main Railway Station by taxi takes about 15 min. (6.5 km/ 4 miles).
Transport from Holešovice Railway Station by taxi takes about 15 min. (6 km/ 3.7 miles)
From the city centre
There is a north-south highway just in front of the PCC and the PCC itself is very easily accessible by taking the underground to “Vyšehrad” station, metro line “C”.
Václav Havel Airport Prague handles flights of most European carriers and also some overseas flights. It is located 30–45 minutes by car from the centre of Prague. There is a good connection between the airport and city centre by public transport buses and taxis.
Unfortunately there is no subway or train connection to the city from the airport. You should buy a ticket before travelling and these can be found at the arrival hall, at ticket machines or at the newsagents (if arriving late and all shops are closed buy a ticket from the driver but large banknotes are not accepted).
