Prague Congress Centre

Situated next to the beautiful Vysehrad area, the Prague Congress Centre provides you with one of the most stunning panoramic views over the city. Vysehrad also offers peaceful green parks encouraging relaxation and the perfect location to catch up with cultural and spiritual matters in your free time. The Congress Centre is in close proximity to many hotels and Vysehrad Metro station is accessible within only 2 minutes’ walk. When traveling to the very heart of the city from the Congress you can be there in less than 10 minutes.

We believe this neo-functionalist building is an ideal place to meet, share and be inspired.

When taking a taxi, make sure the taxi is equipped with a permanently installed yellow roof lamp with the TAXI sign in black letters. The registration number, company name, price list including the base rate, rate per kilometre and one-minute-waiting rate must be displayed on both front doors of the cab. These prices must correspond with the prices set on the meter in the cab. Customers are recommended to order a taxi with non-stop dispatching offices where information on fares is available in advance.

In the city centre taxis are easy to hail from the street but we strongly recommend that you use hotel taxis or obtain taxis by phone through the radio taxi service e.g. AAA (+ 420 14 014), City Taxi (+420 257 257 257) or Speed Cars (+420 224 234 234).

Boarding charge: approximately 40 CZK.
Journeys within the city: approximately 28 CZK/ 1 kilometre. Do not board the taxi without finding out if there is a fixed rate.
