WHERE EXACTLY ARE OUR LOCATIONS? We will be in the exciting city center of Prague, Czech Republic. Our accommodation is in a safe, quiet, and beautiful hotel on an embassy square in Mala Strana, Old Prague. The workshops will take place at a separate studio which is roughly a 10 min Uber ride from our accommodation. Alternatively, you can walk – it’s approximately a 40 minute walk beside the Vltava River. HOW CAN I GET TO AND FROM FROM THE AIRPORT? We recommend the convenience of Prague Airport Transfers www.prague-airport-transfers.co.uk They offer both private and shared service to the airport at very reasonable costs (approx $25 each way for private taxi). Uber is approximately $12 USD one way from the airport to our location. There is a bus from the airport to the town center, click here for the timetable and more information.  It involves 1 stop and a bus transfer, unless you are a confident seasoned traveler we recommend the above car and shuttle service. WHAT ARE THE ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS? Our accommodation rooms are all furnished with twin or double beds, and if you choose a shared room you will have your own bed.  The rooms are elegantly appointed and comfortable. screen-shot-2017-01-02-at-11-18-41-am screen-shot-2017-01-02-at-11-19-22-am CAN I SHARE A ROOM WITH A FRIEND?
