1. The SA or Euroline buses
will take you to the bus station opposite the Grand Hotel which is very close
(250 meters) from the main railway station "Hlavní nádraží". On
the half way to the main railway station, just before the entrance to the
subterraneous passage, there is the trolleybus stop of the link No. 31,
which will take you to Slapanice, the site of the University Conference Centre.
2. Trains from Prague or Vienna stop
at the main railway station "Hlavní nádraží". Pass the main
entrance hall, turn to the right and cross the street. You will get to the
trolleybus stop of the link No. 31, which will take you to Slapanice, the
site of the University Conference Centre.
For the trolleybus No. 31 you will
need tickets of 21 CZK, which you can buy in railway station building or in the
machine just by the No. 31 stop. After getting on the bus, you will have to mark
the ticket in the yellow ticket-machine.
In front of the main railway station
building there is also a taxi rank. You can take a taxi to the University
Conference Center in Šlapanice. It costs about 400-500 CZK (25-31 USD).
In case you will need to exchange
money, after passing the main entrance hall of the railway station turn the left
and cross the street. You will get to the "Masarykova ulice" (street)
where there are many exchange places, open until 6 pm.
When in Šlapanice:
At the stop called "Kalvodova",

is very short - 5 meters). Turn to the left and walk until you see the restored
building on the right side of the street (200 meters). This is The University
Conference Center Šlapanice.
