You can easily get to the conference hotel (Hilton) from the airport. There are information centres in both arriving halls where you can buy your ticket for Prague’s public transport. You can also buy the ticket at a ticket vending machine, but you will need Czech coins for that. It is also possible to buy tickets for public transport in some newspaper kiosks. Once you’ve got your ticket, there are two ways to get to the hotel:
- take bus nr. 100 to the metro station "Zličín" (final station of the yellow line)
- change to metro
- your final destination is "Florenc"
- take bus nr. 119 to the metro station "Nádraží Veleslavín" (new station of the green line)
- change to metro
- at "Můstek" station change the line to the yellow one
- your final destination is also "Florenc"

Come with us and visit the time of King Rudolf II, who made Prague into a European center of culture, art and science. Meet the period in which Rabbi Loew and his Golem, Edward Kelley, Tycho Brahe and other alchemists and scientists of worldwide fame walked the streets of Prague. You can look forward to magicians, acrobats, an alchemist’s laboratory, and of course the already mentioned magic figure of the Golem. All is perfected by a feast with a variety of delicious meals and excellent drinks. Options for those with dietary restrictions will be available.
The event takes place at the Žofín Palace, which is located on an island of the same name on the Vltava River in the middle of Prague. The very atmosphere of the building invites you to a journey back in time. Spend the evening in a beautiful hall or under the long-lived tree canopies. You will be free to enjoy almost the entire island that will offer you a panoramic view of the historical center of Prague.
