Pilsen is a beautiful historical city whose origins date back to the 13th century. On 6 May 1945, near the end of World War II, it was liberated from the Nazis by the 16th Armored Division of General Patton's 3rd Army. An overview of the rich Pilsen's history can be found on its Wikipedia page. The city features many sightseeing attractions.

Using a train from Prague
This is a recommended way of transportation as the Angelo Hotel is located approx. 400 m from the Pilsen Railway Station. The trains leave from the Prague Main Railway Station (Praha Hlavní Nádraží) every hour and the trip takes around 2 hours.
When coming through the Prague Airport, use the Airport Express (AE) shuttle service which takes you there directly. The station of AE is in front of the terminal 1, entrance F, the current price is 60 CZK (2.50 EUR) and it departs every 30 minutes. Main Railway Station (Hlavní Nádraží) is the terminal station of the AE - make sure to not get off too soon. Under normal traffic circumstances, the trip lasts about 40 minutes. When arriving by plane, we recommend that you buy at the airport approximately 1000 CZK (equivalent of 35 EUR) to pay for transportation to Pilsen together with small refreshments. Ask for 100-200 CZK bills as the driver in the AE may not accept a 1000 CZK bill.
When coming from other parts of the city, the Main Railway Station is a stop of the red line "C" of Prague subway. Train tickets can be purchased in the lobby of the railway station, or directly in the train (higher fees apply). The price of the ticket is 105 CZK.

Other means of transport
Some search engines favor buses to trains and if you do not mind smaller seats and less space in general you are welcome to check them. The best quality one is RegioJet followed by other operators. Usually, you need to trasport yourself to Zlicin with the Prague public transportation before beeing able to board the actual bus which goes to Pilsen. In Pilsen buses do not stop in the vicinity of the conference venue.
