Practical information

Travelling to Brno

Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic. You can reach it by plane(from London, Eidhoven and Moscow), car, train or bus. The nearest international airports are Prague (Czech Republic) and Vienna (Austria).

Getting to Brno from these international airports is very simple. We will provide you with some recommendations, but you will find your way to Brno without problem even if you do not follow them precisely.

How to get to Brno from the Prague airport:

There is a good bus connection between Prague airport and Brno operated by the Student Agency. Their yellow air-conditioned buses depart every hour (in rush hours even every half an hour).  You can book and manage your ticket online.

Another possibility is to get to the center of Prague (by taxi, airport charter buses, public transport) and take a bus from Praha-Florenc bus station (buses to Brno leave almost every half an hour) or a train (from the main railway station) to Brno. The journey from Prague city center to Brno takes less than 3 hours.

How to get to Brno from the Vienna airport:

Again, we recommend the service of Student Agency. From Vienna airport their buses depart every second hour. The trip to Brno takes 2 and a half hours.

You can also take a charter bus to Vienna Südbahnhof; in the morning and in the afternoon, there is a good train connection to the main Brno railway station almost every hour. The journey from Vienna airport to Brno takes about 3 hours in this case.

Travelling in Brno

Once you are in Brno, there is nothing easier than to get to the places where the conference events will take place. You will find the important places on our map (which you will find here right after all the venues are confirmed and which will be also included in the orange bag that you will get at the registration).

Most of the conference venues will be in a walking distance from the Česká stop in the city centre.

When taking a tram or bus, do not forget to buy a “15 minute ticket“ (20 CZK) or a “60 minute ticket” (25 CZK, i.e. about 1 EUR) and mark it in the tram by inserting it into a yellow machine on the tram. You will find the ticket machines at almost every stop, make sure you have your change, because it accepts coins only. You can also buy your ticket at most of the news stands.


A number of rooms have been booked for the conference participants in hotel Continental at a reduced price. These rooms can be booked by citing “LEVYNA conference”. We advise you to do so soon. You can also find other hotels on Brno official website.
