Gröbe Villa is located in the residential district of Královské Vinohrady (Royal Vineyards), populated mostly by local people (as opposed to the city centre). This district boasts with green parks, elegant neighbourhoods and hip cafes. You’ll get the chance to experience the real, authentic Prague here with few tourists and reasonable prices at the same time.
The conference venue can be most easily accessed by the underground (metro) or tram. The nearest metro station is Náměstí Míru (the green line A); it takes about 15 minutes by foot to reach the Villa. Alternatively, you can make use of the tram stop Krymská that is served by lines 4, 13, 22 (8 minutes by foot).
Gröbe Villa has direct connections to the very heart of Prague: the centre is just 3 stops away by metro line A from Náměstí Míru to Staroměstská or 19 minutes ride by tram line 22 from Krymská to Národní třída or Národní divadlo. There is no need to change the lines, as both the line A and tram 22 pass through the very centre and continue further to the Prague castle (to metro stop Hradčanská, to tram stop Pražský hrad).
The main railway station is located directly at metro line C (red line) Hlavní nádraží. To get to the conference venue, the easiest option is to take the C line metro to I. P. Pavlova (2 stations, 3 min) and change for trams 4, 13, or 22 to Krymská (3 stops, 5 min).
