Information  for  participants of  the RIPE  Meeting at  the Czech
Technical University:  How do I get there?

A postscript streetmap of the meeting site will be put in the RIPE 
document store and will be available by ftp from:


a) By bus from Prague airport:

   - take bus no. 119 as far as the terminal station (which is the
     "Dejvicka" Underground station).

   - Cross the "Evropska" street you are on - preferably by the
     subway at the Dejvicka Underground station. Take the stairway
     exit marked "Solinova, Bus, Vysoke skoly".

   - You will come out of the subway into Solinova Street which
     will take you directly towards Technicka Street.

   - take the second left-hand street off Solinova Street - this is
     Technicka street, where the Technical University is located.

   - The meeting place (Faculty of Electrical Engineering) is the
     first building on the right-hand side of Technicka Street.
     You cannot miss it.

b) By train:

   - take the Underground A-line to the "Dejvicka" terminal station.
     Use the escalators at the front of your platform and look for
     the "Solinova, Bus, Vysoke skoly" stairway exit as described

c) By taxi:

   - taxi from the Airport to the meeting place should cost
     approx. 110 Kcs:  distance   = 13 km;
                       max. price = 8 Kcs/km
                       fixed fee  = 6 Kcs

   - No additional fees should be paid. Please ask for a receipt
     if in doubt.

Directions will be posted inside the Faculty building and there will
be people available to point you in the right direction.

Public Transport - how much does it cost and where can I get tickets?

Normal ticket price for all types of public transport (Underground,
tram, bus, funicular railway) is 4,- Kcs.

Tickets should be bought before entering the Underground, tram or bus.
You can buy them from supervisors at most entrances to the Underground,
or from orange-coloured ticket machines (by the Underground entrances
and at many tram or bus stops), or in newspaper kiosks, tobacconists'
shops and many food stores.

The ticket should be punched IMMEDIATELY after getting on a tram or bus
(ask your co-passengers to help you if necessary), and stamped BEFORE
entering the Underground premises. 

Each ticket can be used only once (i.e. a new ticket must be used if you
change buses or trams. You can travel any distance on the same ticket if
you don't change buses or trams). With the Underground it is slightly
different in that your ticket is valid on all Underground lines for
one hour.

1-day to 5-day tourist tickets can also be  bought mainly  in some
newspaper kiosks or at Public Transport Offices for 30 Kcs (1-day)
to 100 Kcs (5-day); these tickets should not be marked  but should
be displayed on request.
