TRAVEL TIPS

Information here will be updated as necessary.

Geocaching in the city centre

City centre is generally crowded, consider to visit geocaches in the centre rather early morning.

Sunday May 3rd - some parts of the centre will be closed for Prague Marathon. If you plan to visit geocaches in the Prague city centre try to avoid Sunday.

Accomodation

Book your accommodation well ahead. May is a start of peak season.

Accomodation in south east parts of Prague will help you to avoid complicated traffic in the city centre.

Prague offers wide variety of accomodation - use your favorite booking site to find accomodation that fits your needs and budget.

Very close to the event site are some caravan camping venues, where you can also camp in tent. (We do not endorse any particular venue, this is for information only.)

Getting around the city

We strongly suggest using the public transport for travel around the city, especially the center. Prague's excellent transport system allows you to get around the city quickly and safely.

You can reach the event venue by tram, bus, or even by boat. You can by public transport tickets for 72 hours for approx 12 EUR - https://www.dpp.cz/en/fares-in-prague/

Money

Official currency is Czech crown. The Euro is accepted in many places but certainly not everywhere. Cash in euros may not be accepted especially in smaller venues - small shops, market stalls, kiosks.

Credit cards and debit cards are widely accepted, so there is no need to have large amounts of cash at hand. You can pay larger amounts by cards and take along some cash for smaller payments and places that do not accept cards.

Our event shop will accept card payments, cash euros, czech crowns. All food stalls within the event venue will accept euros. Only some will accept cards. There is an ATM at the event venue and several more in close proximity.
