TSD 2012 - How to reach Brno

Brno can be reached easily by direct flights from London, Milan, Moscow, Eindhoven and Rome and by buses/trains from Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest. From other places it is convenient to go by plane to Vienna or Prague and then by coach or train (130 km from Vienna, 200 km from Prague) to Brno.

By Plane

There is a small international airport Turany in Brno with flights from London/Stansted, London/Luton, Milan/Bergamo, Moscow/Vnukovo, Rome/Fiumicino and Eindhoven. Other nearest international airports are Schwechat in Vienna (130km) and Ruzyne in Prague (200km). There are good bus/train connections to Brno from there, some airlines even offer direct bus transport to Brno from the airport. Ask your travel agent for this option when buying your plane ticket.

An easy (and cheap) bus connection from Ruzyne to Brno is the one with StudentAgency buses - you can find the timetable at IDOS pages (choose English at the page, enter From: Ruzyne, To: Brno and select direct). Note that you must change buses at the bus station Florenc in Prague but you buy only one ticket for the whole trip at the airport.

The StudentAgency busses have also direct connection from the Vienna airport to Brno.

By Train

Brno can be reached easily by direct EC trains from Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest. You may find some train connections which may suit you best at the IDOS pages

By Car

Brno is located in the southeast part of the Czech Republic, on the backbone motorway D-1 Prague-Brno-Bratislava, and the rail-road line Prague-Brno-Vienna.

The nearest international airports are Vienna (recommended) and Prague. Brno is about 120 minutes drive from Vienna or 150 minutes drive from Prague. Use exit 190 when leaving motorway from Prague.

You can find your way to the Conference location on the Google map of the conference location.
