Practical Info

Venue

Faculty of Social Studies, Masaryk University
Joštova 10, 602 00
Brno, Czech Republic

Travel information

As the second largest city in the Czech Republic, Brno is relatively easy to reach by train, bus, car, and aeroplane. For attendees based in the CR, a train might be the most convenient option.

To reach the venue, take tram number 4 leaving from “Hlavní nádraží” tram stop (“Main Train Station” located directly opposite its namesake) and continue for about 6 minutes before reaching “Komenského náměstí”. The tram stop is located directly outside the Faculty of Social Studies. If you’d prefer to travel on foot, a short walk thought the city centre should take about 15 minutes (from the main train station via streets Masarykova, Náměstí svobody, Česká, Joštova).

Alternatively, the venue can be reached on foot from “Česká” tram stop (follow in the direction of a red church; the Faculty is a green triangular building at the farther end of Joštova street)

Getting around in Brno

The city centre is relatively small and can be easily navigated on foot. Public transport can also be used (trams, buses, and trolleybuses). Tickets can be bought via SMS or in vending machines, newsstands, and kiosks. You can search for timetables, arrivals, and departures on IDOS webpage

Internet
