We, the people behind PRAMUN, love our home city. And we want you to love it as well!
This section of our website should help you – it includes essential info about Prague, that you should know when shopping or leisurely strolling, basic navigation from your hotel to Jan Neruda High School and back and some recommendation on what to watch, read or buy.
Prague boasts one of the best public transport systems in the world. That's why you'll be using it a lot during the conference. The easiest way to move around the city centre are trams and metro. This is how to get from the hotel to the school and back:
TRAM STOP IN FRONT OF THE HOTEL
FOLLOW THE RAILS AND TAKE THE 2nd LEFT / TURN LEFT WHEN EXITING SCHOOL.
Don't forget to validate your ticket!

Our currency is the Czech Crown (or koruna česká in our language), abbreviated CZK or Kč. We use 1–50 crown coins and 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000 and rarely also 5000 crown banknotes (see →). Prague has a good network of ATMs and exchange places.
If you exchange cash, you might want to check exchange.cz for the latest rates first! And never exchange currency at the airport.
General rules are:
1 EUR = 25+ CZK
1 USD = 20+ CZK
SAFETY & EMERGENCY
Prague is one of the safest European capitals and the Czech Republic is the 7th safest country in the world (USA is 114th). There are no explicitly dangerous neighbourhoods and almost no crime whatsoever
– that however does not mean you shouldn't pay attention to your belongings (yes, we do have pickpockets) or take long walks through dark alleys in the middle of the night.
In case of emergency, call the following numbers:
