Prague is a city with a huge number of hotels, hostels and bead and breakfast establishments. Certainly you can find your own accommodation, using hotel reservation systems (e. g. or ).

We urgently advise you to make your reservation as soon as possible because of the limited number of hotel rooms at the end of August and beginning of September.

If you prefer to stay close to Planetarium, here are some options.


You can find the Prague Planetarium at Stromovka park, not far from Výstaviště (Exhibition grounds), behind the terminate tram station Výstaviště (tram No 17).
Because Stromovka park is protected natural area, there are no parking places on the Planetarium ground for ESOP participants.

It is recommended to get to Planetarium by public transport.
