There are two other logic-related events happening in Prague just before WARU.
Prague Gathering of Logicians, held on 9 and 10th of May. It is an annual meeting of researchers in logic and related disciplines, mostly based in the Czech Republic.
Prague Logc Camp, held on 6-9 May. It is a spring school/workshop for early career researchers in logic.
Local currency and exchange rates
The currency in the Czech Republic is the Czech crown (CZK or Kč).
1 EUR = approx. 25 CZK
1 USD = approx. 22 CZK
We advise you not to change money at the airport; use the ATMs instead. Later in town you can exchange money at much better rates, ATMs are omnipresent, and card acceptance is almost universal. It is advisable, however, to have enough cash when going to restaurants, cafes etc. as these do not always accept cards.
Public transportation in Prague
Prague public transportation is integrated, tickets are valid on all forms of public transport. The tickets must be bought in advance. They are sold at tobacconists, newsagents and from the ticket machines (usually coins only) located at the metro stations and elsewhere. There is also a special booth at the airport Terminal 2.
On buses and trams you must punch your ticket immediately after getting on. At the metro, the ticket must be marked at the entrance. There are two kind of tickets: 24 CZK (valid for 30 min) and 32 CZK (valid for 90 min). 24 and 72 hour tickets are also available for 110 CZK or 310 CZK, respectively (there is no weekly ticket). For detailed information about the fares and connections available see http://www.dpp.cz/en or http://www.idos.cz.
Transit from/to the airport
Bus 119 connects Nádraží Veleslavín metro station (line A) with the airport. The bus stop is right in front of the arrivals hall and the journey takes less than 20 minutes. From Nádraží Veleslavín you can continue to the center by subway. The standard ticket is valid for this bus (and the consecutive subway ride modulo the time restrictions mentioned above; we advise to validate the 90 min ticket for the ride to/from your hotel).
Bus AE (Airport express) connects the airport with main railway station (Hlavní nádraží). The standard ticket is not valid on this bus (this together with the funicular in the ZOO are the only two exceptions of the general rule mentioned above). The special ticket costs 60 CZK and is sold by the bus driver.
