Obsah

Registrace a platba

Ot.: Jak zjistím, zda jsem řádně přihlášený?

Odp.: Bohužel, vzhledem ke způsobu, kterým provádíme registraci, není možné, abyste si vaši registraci ověřili. Pokud vám na tom opravdu záleží, zeptejte se na adrese opensuse-conference@opensuse.org nebo přímo jednoho ze členů týmu.

Ot.: Při registraci jsem uvedl/zapomněl uvést, že chci podpořit konferenci. Mohu to změnit?

Odp.: Pokud byste rádi podpořili konferenci, ale neuvedli jste to v registraci, jednoduše se zaregistrujte znovu. To stejné proveďte v případě, že jste se ohledně podpory rozmysleli - proveďte registraci znovu. V případě zdvojené registrace budeme brát zřetel na tu poslední. Pokud jste omylem obdrželi e-mail s informacemi o platbě, dejte nám vědět, pokud platit nechcete.

Ot.: Zaregistroval jsem se s tím, že chci podpořit konferenci. Jakým způsobem budu platit?

Odp.: Na věcech kolem plateb ještě pracujeme, jakmile vše připravíme, dostanete e-mail s podrobnostmi. Děkujeme za vaši podporu.

Ot.: Jsem přednášející, měl bych se registrovat?

Odp.: Tak určitě! My pro ty, kdo se registrovali, jenom rezervujeme jídlo, odznaky, místa na párty atd., takže pokud jste člověk jako my a občas se potřebujete najíst, je doporučeno se zaregistrovat.

Ot.: Zaregistroval jsem se, ale nemohu přijít, můžete mou registraci zrušit?

Odp.: Bohužel, náš registrační systém není takto flexibilní. Věříme, že vám nebude vadit, když obdržíte pár e-mailů a po konferenci slibujeme, že vše vymažeme!

Travelling Information

Q: Do I need a passport?

A: Czech Republic is member of the European Union and belongs to Schengen area. This means that you can enter the country with your European ID if you come from a european country, otherwise you need a valid passport and possibly a VISA.

Q: What is the currency used in Czech Republic (CZ)? / Do they accept Euros?

A: CZ uses Czech Crowns and not Euros. Although Euros are accepted in most places, it is better to exchange some money beforehand, in order to avoid disadvantageous exchange rates.

Q: How much is the exchange rate?

A: = ~25 CZK. There are also android applications for exchange rates: "Exchange Rates" and "Easy Currency Converter".

Q: Where can I exchange money to CZK?

A: Always check the exchange rate offered. Usually they will give you 0,50 CZK below official exchange rate.

Some places usually offering good exchange rates:

  • Mango Change - center, close to the Václavské náměstí (Wenceslas Square)
  • Huspak Exchange - center, close to Národní třída
  • eXchange - center, close to Staroměstské náměstí (Old town square)

Q: How much money would I need per day?

A: Obviously depends on your food choices. But a general idea is:

  • Lunch at the venue (for those that indicated in their registration that they want one) is at 100 CZK (that is 4 euro).
  • Dinner is around 5 euro (that is for one main dish, for example one 30cm pizza)
  • A beer in a pub/bar/restaurant costs 1-1.5 euro per 0.3-0.5l

Q: How hard is it to find English speaking people there?

A: In city center almost everybody speaks at least some English, so you won't have a problem at all. Outside of the center, though, things might get difficult.

Q: What happens if I get lost or if I get in trouble, or if I get hit, or if I get drunk?

A: We will provide emergency numbers printed on your conference badge.

Apart from police/ambulance, there will also be a number from a Czech SUSE guy that will be able to provide you assistance in case of emergency.

Q: I'm thinking of buying a Czech SIM card, how much does it cost?

A: You can do that in stores of Vodafone, O2 or T-mobile. Usually SIM cards costs about 200 CZK and are precharged with same amount of credit.

Q: Could you give us a summary of available android applications?

A: There's a bunch of apps you can use:

Q: Sightseeing - What *not* to miss?

A: Some overall information and a map of attractions.

There are truly so many things you can see and do in Prague! And don't forget, there is a vivid medieval element from taverns to museums (feel free to explore them!).

Here are some must-see highlights:

1. Charles Bridge (Karluv Most): connects Old Town region with Mala Strana, offers nice view and artistic interest

2. Old Town & the astronomical clock: right in the center of old town's square you can find the famous astronomical clock and enjoy its show of figures every hour (exactly on the hour). Right opposite of the clock you can enjoy a hot beverage.

3. Mala Strana (Lesser Town): a beautiful part of the city. You can enjoy St. Nicholas church (Tram No 12, 20, 22 Stop: Malostranské náměstí) and you can also find a couple of souvenir shops with good prices and wide variety of things to buy.

4. Wenceslas Square (Václavské náměstí): A large square connecting metro stations Muzeum & Mustek. In the middle of the square there is also tram service (No 3, 9, 14, 24, 91)

5. Petrin Hill: Perfect scenery inside the woods. You can go up using the funicular railway (teleferic) go down walking.

6. Prague Castle & St Vitus Cathedral: if you have some more time to spend, don't miss out on the opportunity to visit the so famous castle and admire the Cathedral of St Vitus!

RECOMMENDED: Don't miss a boat trip in Vltava River during day time! Cheapest way is if you buy a ticket in the Charles Museum (which is located underneath Charles Bridge, from the side of Old Town), which offers a free boat ride.
