Venue & Fees

The symposium will be held at the main library of the University of South Bohemia, Branišovská 1646/31B, 370 05 České Budějovice.

The student residence where free accommodation is offered for part of the participants is just next door. For those who prefer to stay in a hotel, the closest option is Hotel Budweis, situated near the old town, within walking distance of the main square. See www.hotelbudweis.cz. This and other hotels are about 2.5 km away from the university. 

The conference fee for the symposium (including 5 coffee breaks, 3 lunches and 3 dinners) will be 125 EUR. 

Travel costs will have to be covered by the participants. We can secure transfer directly from and to Prague airport for 50 EUR one way. 

Travel

Fly to the Czech Republic

Prague International Airport (Letiště Václava Havla Praha) is the biggest airport in the Czech Republic and connects to more than 150 destinations worldwide. There are a number of low cost airlines flying to Prague, such as Smartwings, easyJet, and Ryanair.

Public Transport: Train or Bus

If you want to use public transport from the airport to Budweis (České Budějovice), go to the bus platform located just outside your terminal and take the Airport Express (AE) to Prague Train Station. There are trains to České Budějovice about once an hour, and the travel takes about 2 hours. 

Alternatively, from the airport you can take the bus No. 191 to the bus terminal U knižecí and from there the RegioJet bus in the direction of Český Krumlov. Buses leave about once an hour, and the travel to České Budějovice takes about 2 hours. 

Of course, you can also take a taxi from the airport to either the train station or the bus station. The estimated fare is 800 CZK (appr. 30 EUR) for one way.

In České Budějovice, you can take bus No. 3 to Jihočeská univerzita. Or you take a taxi, which should be around 150 CZK (appr. 6 EUR).

Direct Shuttle Service

The transfer organised by us is more expensive (100 EUR instead of about 20 EUR by public transport), but it will be faster (about 2 hours instead of 3 – 4) and more convenient. The driver will, however, have to wait for 2 – 3 passengers to arrive before leaving the airport, so that the advantage in terms of time might be smaller.
