What to Wear and the Weather:

Attire for the ISHLT Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions is business casual. The average daytime high temperature in Prague in April is 50°F (16°C); the average low temperature is 44°F (6°C). Because meeting room temperatures sometimes fluctuate, we recommend bringing a light sweater or jacket.

Hotel/Airport/Main Railway Station Transportation

All hotels are located approximately 30 miles/28 km from Vaclav Havel Airport Prague (PRG). The airport is accessible via taxi (approximately 30 USD/ 685 CZK each way).
Additional ground transportation options between the airport and hotels can be found here.

Prague is easily accessible by rail from many European cities. The Prague Main Railway Station (Praha hlavní nádraží) is in the city center, near Wenceslas Square and directly accessible to Metro Line C (red) - Hlavní nádraží station – to access the hotels. Taxi cabs are also available at the station and a very short ride away.

Prague Metro (Public Transportation)
