We wish you a warm welcome to Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Physical Education and Sport. Situated in Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic, the Faculty is part of the oldest university in central Europe, and welcomes international exchange and cooperation.
The main building of the Faculty is situated just between the city centre and the airport:
Prague International Airport is located 15 minutes by bus or taxi from the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport. For getting from the airport to the Faculty, it is possible to use the bus no. 119 to the stop “Divoká Šárka” and then take a tram – 1 stop.
Outside the airport arrivals exit, the bus is to the right on the aisle across the road (any problems - just ask someone for BUS 119). Students can buy a 24 CZK bus ticket at the Information Office just inside the airport, or at the yellow slot machine by the bus stop, for which you will need coins (20/10/5 CZK). It is also possible to buy a ticket on the bus from the bus-driver – but it is a bit more expensive. 24 CZK tickets last 30 minutes after being validated by inserting into the time-punch machine on the bus. 32 CZK tickets last for 90 minutes.
The bus stop for the Faculty is called DIVOKÁ ŠÁRKA (there are illuminated LED signs for next stop on the inside roof of all buses, trams and metro, and also voice instructions). To get to the Faculty building it is a 10-minute-walk in the same direction as the bus, along the main street (Evropska) to a long yellow building on the right. (Alternatively, it is possible to board a tram for one stop only – the tram terminus is a short walk on the left, and your ticket is still valid.) After one stop, the Faculty is 50m in the direction the tram goes, on your right.) Roughly in the middle of the building, there is the main entrance to the Faculty. Reception is just inside.
On arrival, students can arrange to meet an International Student Advisor for help with travel to the Faculty, assistance with accommodation, and any other advice or information.
