FROM PRAGUE AIRPORT TO THE WORKSHOP VENUE (MICHNA PALACE)
Taxi is much more expensive than public transport and only a little bit faster. It is reasonable to use taxis only for night arrivals/departures, when bus line 119 does not operate.
We recommend using FIX Taxi or Taxi Praha, which are the official taxi companies operating at the airport - www.prg.aero/en/taxi. You can find taxis in front of the arrivals halls of both terminals. The fare from the airport to the conference venue/offered hotels can be expected to be around 500 CZK (a higher fare is possible depending on the current traffic).
By public transport
Take bus no. 119 from the airport to its final stop "Nádraží Veleslavín" then take metro line A to "Malostranská" station (4 stops). There change to tram No. 12, 20 or 23 to "Újezd" stop (3 stops). The palace is situated just 190m from the tram stop - see the map.
The journey takes about 45 minutes and you can use a 32 CZK ticket (valid for 90 minutes).
You can find information or buy tickets at public transport info centers at the airport:
Public transport info centers at Prague Airport

PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN PRAGUE
The public transportation system in Prague consists of buses, metro and trams. There is also a funicular going onto the top of the hill "Petřín" with beautiful view over the Old Town and the central parts of the New Town (this funicular is very close to the workshop venue).
