By metro:

CVUT campus is located within walking distance to the Dejvicka metro station. Take metro line A and get off at Dejvicka stop. Walk upstairs and take the exit to the left from the subway in direction to “Bus to Suchdol.” Cross the bus stop and continue across the park. Cross the park, walk down the Technicka street (it is a wide street with trees in the middle) and you will see the building of the Faculty of Civil Engineering ahead.

By tram:

Take tram no. 8 or 18, 20, 26 and get off at “Vitezne namesti” station. Walk to the subway that leads to the metro station to walk under the square and then follow the same route.

From the airport:

At the airport, the bus stop is located in the middle of the car park outside the arrival hall, just walk straight and look for the signs.
