ARE YOU HEADING TO LET IT ROLL WINTER 2019 FROM OUTSIDE OF CZECH REPUBLIC? HERE YOU WILL FIND USEFUL INFO ON HOW TO EASILY GET TO THE FESTIVAL


The winter edition of the Let It Roll festival will be held right in the heart of beautiful Prague! You may be wondering how to get there, where to get accommodation and how to get around the city. You can find all this information in this section, intended mainly for our guests from abroad.


VISA AND HEALTH INSURANCE

The main principle of the Schengen Area is the free movement of persons across country borders within the European Union. In other words, when you’re travelling from one EU country to another, you don’t need any special visa – a valid passport or personal ID is enough.

However, there are some exceptions to this rule: countries that are required to have visa. You can find the list of such countries including information on how to obtain visa HERE

Also please keep in mind that you need to get medical insurance. This is very important when you’re travelling abroad, as you never know what might happen and when you may be in need of free-of-charge medical care.


TRAVELING TO THE CZECH REPUBLIC

There are several options of how to get here depending on where you’re travelling from.

BY PLANE: The Václav Havel Airport is located at the northwest border of Prague, in the district of Prague 6. You can find the best deals at skyscanner.com or www.momondo.co.uk. From the airport, you can get to Prague’s Holešovice district, where the Incheba Arena is located, in several ways:

  • By taxi – We recommend using Taxify, Uber or Liftago apps. Never take a cab in the street!
  • By public transport – You can look up public transport connections here –> http://spojeni.dpp.cz/ConnForm.aspx?cl=E5. You can buy tickets from the driver or use the SMS ticket service

BY TRAIN: If you’re coming from a country neighbouring the Czech Republic (Austria, Slovakia, Poland, Germany), we recommend taking a train to Prague’s main train station. All train information can be found here -> https://www.goeuro.co.uk. From the main station, you can take a tram or metro to the Incheba Arena (the closest tram stop is called Výstaviště Holešovice).
