1st Project Meeting in Celakovice

The first official invitation came from Gymnázium of Čelákovice in Czech Republic to all partners to participate in the 1st Project Meeting from 29/9/2011 to 5/10/2011.

Our preparations has begun. The time is not enough. We had to rush!!!

Čelákovice is a town, situated on Labe (Elbe) river, approx. 20 km distant from capital Prague. From times immemorial, this town is known as King’s town.
From railway station, you walk along rather busy street. However, modern history added this small town big portion of dust, noise, many vehicles and also inhabitants. Total population number in quarters, such as Čelákovice, Sedlčánky, Záluží and Císařská Kuchyně - i.e. the communities which form the town, makes nearly 11 thousands people.
Since time period, when there was built in Čelákovice the first wooden fortificated seat, the town spreaded in numerous crowd of houses, and, after a war, dwelling houses, built during Communist era. Nevertheless, these building could be, from tourist point of view, more interesting in the future.

How to get to Čelákovice (by Barbora)

When you arrive at the airport and pick up your luggage, you will need to take a bus from outside the terminal. You will see the bus signs. You will need to buy a ticket for the public transport. Buy a 46 CZK ticket that is valid for 150 mins and that should be enough for all public transport within Prague, as well as the train to Celakovice. You can buy this ticket from the machine that should be at the bus stop. You will need to change some money in order to buy the tickets. So, this you can do at the airport. There are several CHANGE shops at the airport. Just choose the one with the lowest commission. Don't change all your money, just enough to buy your tickets. We can change the rest later at a better foreign exchange at Celakovice. 

On the bus, your final destination is the last stop, Dejvice. This is an underground stop. You will take this underground going in the direction of Depo Hostivar. You will get off at the 4th stop, Mustek. Here, you will transfer to the yellow line B, going in the direction of Cerny Most. You will get off after 1 stop, at Namesti Republiky. Then, just follow the signs leading you to Masarykovo Nadrazi and you will then get on the relevant train.

The train times and stops should be shown on the screen. The relevant train will go in the direction of either Milovice, Nymburk or Kolin. If you are uncertain, just ask anyone if this train goes to Celakovice. The train goes every half an hour at either 24mins past that hour or 54 mins past that hour. 

Have a nice trip!
