How to get to the Clarion Congress Hotel Prague
Details on distance:
The international airport Prague Ruzyně is located 15 km from the city centre. The most comfortable way to reach City Centre is by taxi. Transport from Ruzyne Airport by taxi takes about 30-45 min. (19,5 km/ 12 miles). The price of a taxi from the airport to the venue or to hotels should be about 30 Euro.
Another possibility is to use public transport. Take bus number 119 from the airport (the bus stop "Letiste Ruzyne" is located in front of the Arrival Hall) to the last stop "Dejvicka". Then change to the metro green line A and go to station "Mustek". You have to change the lines here to the yellow metro line B and go to station "Vysocanska" (direction Cerny Most). The total traveling time from the airport to the Clarion Congress Hotel should be about 1 hour.
Prague can be easily reached by rail. The terminals of the Main Railway Station and the Holesovice Railway Station are at a Metro station of the red line C. To get to the venue, go to station "Florenc", then change to yellow line "B" and go to station "Vysocanska" (direction Cerny Most). All international trains arrive at Praha hlavní nádraží (the main station, abbreviated to Praha hl.n.) which has connections with Metro Line C.

Trams cover most areas of the city. The most useful trams are: Tram 9 - runs across the city, via Wenceslas Square in the New Town to the Lesser Town. Tram 22 - runs via the National Theatre in the New Town to the Lesser Town, then up to the rear of Prague Castle (this tram follows a very scenic route).

It runs every 10 minutes in the summer, every 15 minutes in the winter.
