Access to Prague Congress Centre for disabled participants
The vestibule and platform from the direction of the city-center (Háje-bound) has barrier-free access.
Because of the station´s structural design with separate platforms, to get to the city center we recommend using the subway train from the wheelchair-accessible Háje-bound platform and going to the next station, Pražského povstání, where the island platform allows for an easy transfer to trains going to the city center (Ládví, Letňany-bound). For a barrier-free exit at Vyšehrad station from the direction of Háje, we recommend going to I. P. Pavlova station and using the island platform to transfer to a Háje-bound train.
Get off from Metro and take the right onto the platform down and then to the left into the park. The park passes straight, you pass the stairs to your left to the congress center and you go straight to the ramp leading up to the congress center. As you drive up, continue straight ahead towards the metro station. Approximately 10m in front of the stairs to the metro, turn right up the ramp and then right around the congress center. You are now at your destination, all accesses to the congress center are barrier-free, as well as the entire interior of the Congress Center.
