VÝSTAVIŠTĚ HOLEŠOVICE – PRAGUE – PAVILION C
VISA AND HEALTH INSURANCE
The main principle of the Schengen Area is the free movement of persons across country borders within the European Union. In other words, when you’re travelling from one EU country to another, you don’t need any special visa – a valid passport or personal ID is enough.
However, there are some exceptions to this rule: countries that are required to have visa. You can find the list of such countries including information on how to obtain visa HERE
Also please keep in mind that you need to get medical insurance. This is very important when you’re travelling abroad, as you never know what might happen and when you may be in need of free-of-charge medical care.
If you’re heading for the festival from far away (even across the ocean), we advise taking a flight landing at Vaclav Havel Airport in Prague. You can find the cheapest flight tickets on SKYSCANNER.
BY TRAIN / BY BUS:
If you’re from one of the countries neighboring Czech Republic, you can opt not only for a plane, but can also take a train or a bus going to Prague. Bus lines stop at Prague’s main bus station at “Florenc” which is also a stop at underground line “C”, so you can get on board of the tube and get off two stops down the road at “Nádraží Holešovice” station.
All trains stop at Prague’s main railway station, if your train stops at “Prague-Holešovice” station though, you can get off the train there and either walk 10 minutes to the expo or take a tram (it’s the first stop after you get on board).
Pavilion C is situated in Prague’s Holešovice district. You can easily get there by taking a tram or underground line “C” – Nádraží Holešovice station.
PRAGUE PUBLIC TRANSPORT:
There are 3 possible ways to get to Pavilion C (in the area of Expo Holešovice) – by taking underground line “C” (red line) – Nádraží Holešovice station tram, or, if you’re adventurers who’d like to see a bit of the city, you can get there by foot (it’s about 3 kilometres / 55 minutes from Prague’s main railway station and about 2 kilometres / 40 minutes from Prague’s main bus station).
If you opt for the tram, head for the “Výstaviště Holešovice” stop. If you opt for the underground (red) line “C”, head for the “Nádraží Holešovice” station from where you can either take a tram to the “Výstaviště Holešovice” stop (it’s the next stop) or get there by foot in about 10 minutes.
