Location

location Arrival by subway Take line C until you reach Pankrác metro station and then take either escalator up to the next level where you will have to take an additional escalator or stairs to reach ground level. Once outside you can clearly see the KCC, which is situated approximately 150m from the metro station.

Arrival by car If travelling northbound from Brno on Highway D1, follow the E50 route, which then becomes 5. Kvetna (May 5th Street) or locally known as ‘Magistrala’ and is more of an inner-city highway or boulevard than a typical city street. From there you should easily recognize the Arkády shopping center on your left-hand side, where you can find parking.

Parking information Ample parking has been made available for all visitors in the Arkády shopping center parking lot located less than 100m from the KCC. Please note in advance that the first 3 hours of parking there are free and any additional time is 40 Czech crowns per hour.
