June 10, 2014


Dear Student,

Kindly find below some practical information useful for your arrival and your first days at Tomas Bata
University in Zln.

Date of arrival
I would like to ensure myself that all of you who have sent the Application Form to study at TBU are
really coming. Thus, if there are any changes, please, inform me about it.
Furthermore as soon as you know your date of your arrival to Zln inform me about it. I have to
deliver this information to the Hall of Residence.
The recommended arrival is during the end of the week before the beginning of semester, preferably
during the working days.

Winter semester 2014/2015
The summer semester starts on Monday, September 15, 2014 and finishes on Friday, January 31,
2015 (exam period included).
However in 80% all of the exchange students have all their exams passed in December or beginning
of January and check-out from the University in the same month. The only exceptions are usually
students of the Faculty of Multimedia Communications who work on their projects and art works in
late January as well.

Getting to Zln
If it is possible for you to travel freely around Europe (no visa regulations etc) it is not really
necessary for you to land in the Czech Republic Capitol, Prague. You can fly to Vienna (Austria) or
Bratislava (Slovakia) which is actually closer to Zln (approx. 210 km) then Prague (300 km). There are
quite good train and bus connections to Zln from the above mentioned cities.
There are also some limited possibilities of flights to Brno (approx. 100 km from Zln).

As for the connection from the Prague Airport to the train station, below you can find instructions
how to get there in the easiest way:
On the following link are instructions how to get to Hlavni nadrazi (main train station) from the
airport - http://czech-transport.com/index.php?id=357 by Airport Express (AE) bus.

Follow the sign to get to the AE stop.
The destination stop is on the Wilsonova Street (actually above the main building of the train
You can buy a ticket at the bus driver, it costs CZK 60.

As for the train or bus connections from Prague to Zln, check the following site www.idos.cz.
From write just Praha (or any other city you are coming from), To write just Zln or Zln
sted in the case of train connections.

The on-line reservation and on-line payment is required for the trains and buses operated by Student
agency, LeoExpress or for a special train called Pendolino operated by Czech Railways. However
transport with the above mentioned companies can be highly recommended good service, high
comfort and low price.

Seats in trains operated by the Czech Railways or in busses operated by any different company do
not need to be reserved in advance. Tickets can be bought right away at the train station or directly
from the bus driver.

In the Annex 1 you can find a map of Zln (its centre) where the location of both train and bus
stations and your dormitory is shown. It is not long way at all. Just one thing - your dormitory is
located on the hill ;-)
