For most of you, the travel to our Prague Study Centre will begin at Václav Havel Airport Prague. Czech currency – crowns is better to exchange at a small amount, only for necessary travel and minor expenses. You can do this in the departure zones both at the first and the second terminals, or to withdraw cash from the ATM:
Buy a ticket
If you go by public transport, you must first buy a ticket. In Prague, one ticket operates on all types of transport: bus, tram, metro, which is very convenient. Kiosks with information and tickets are close to the exit of the airport building. To get to “Krystal” you need to buy a ticket for 30 crowns, valid for 30 minutes. You can pay both in cash (crowns) or by card. Or you can buy a ticket at the yellow ticket machine right at the bus stop. Note that you may need to change bank notes to coins for the ticket machine:
From Airport to Krystal
When leaving the first terminal arriving zone, you need to go to the bus stop to take bus No. 119. The timetable is printed on the bus stand. You can enter the bus by any door (front, middle or rear).
Note that you have to stamp your ticket on the bus. The ticket is not valid unless you stamp it (yellow ticket machine):
The bus stops also at the second terminal, therefore, coming from Schengen countries, you will get to the “Krystal” from the “Terminál 2” bus stop. Again, please do not forget to proceed to buy the ticket at the airport and to stamp it in the yellow box when you get on the bus.
Now, that you are on the bus, sit back and relax. Your destination stop is Nádraží Veleslavín. Travel time is 15 minutes. You can follow the station namess on the screen:
This is what you will see at your destination stop. The Krystal building is a five-minute walk, aprox. 300m, and can be seen from the bus stop (the metro station should be behind you):
You will see the Krystal study centre in all its glory:
