    I tried looking that up for random dates the other day, and it looks like about $100USD each way and b/t 7.5 and 11 hours...

    OK that's what I was seeing.  Thank you.

    Nope, not the case at all. You'll be able to book round trip from Prague to Krakow for <$30. The problem is you can't book until less than 90 days out.

    Wow.....Hope to be able to do that!

    Count me in. I also sent an email to a transport agency asking what a bus would cost for the trip Prague to Krakow to Berlin. Let's see what we can get.. altough it could be much easier if this is organised by local people.

    Yes! Brilliant idea. I was kind of hoping for that.
  • Which is better for a hotel and for transport to the venue Prague 1 or 2 ?

    Which is better for a hotel and for transport to the venue Prague 1 or 2 ?
    Well...that a tough one to answer. P1 will be more expensive in the summer and as someone living in Prague I always prefer P2 as it's got a little more character than the tourist areas. Feel free to shoot me a PM and I can help.

    @BlueLedbetter, you can use GoogleMaps to look into this too, I was in Prague recently and the metro and tram info on GoogleMaps was spot on! Just be aware that Metro and some trams stop running at a certain point (I think around midnight?) so you'll want to make sure that there's a late-night tram that runs from O2 to your hotel.

    No it is 12:00pm CET and would be 6:00 am Eastern. 


    Anyone else click on the ticket info link and get sent to Ticketportal's website? I thought the best site would be to use Livenation. What site do the presale link send you too?

    Thank you. I knew Prague was at least 5 hours ahead of me, but i was wondering if they sold ther tickets at night time. Thanks for the heads-up.

    Yeah, what is the best link?

  • Also doing Prague and Krakow, cannot wait. Train for us as well!!
  • Seems there will be a lot of us on trains!! Are people thinking the overnighter is a better option? Saves a night in a hotel but less sleep....

    Never been on an all night train. I was going to in Italy for the solo shows this year with my wife but the reviews where awful. Maybe if we filled a whole train up with fans it would be a great idea and not have to worry about randoms. Also I read that they are in the works of something for those doing the Prague - Krakow - Berlin trip. Not sure what they are thinking but a dedicated PJ bus would be sweet!

    Location isn't terrible, 10 minute walk to the Old Town area. The plus side is you're close to the metro line that will drop you off at the venue.
