Prague Balfolk Weekend

19-21 January 2024


The festival will take place on the premises of the castle in Chvaly (Chvalský zámek). But don’t worry, it is still easily accessible by public transport, there are even night buses. During the day, the journey from the city centre takes around 30 minutes.

The ball will be held in a beautifully renovated hall called Chvalská stodola. Furthermore, we will have at our disposal one room in the castle itself, which will be used for some of the workshops and/or chill-out zone.

How to get there

By public transport

From the main train station (Praha Hlavní nádraží) by underground: Take the C (red) line to Florenc and change to the B (yellow) line.

From the airport: Take the bus 119 to Nádraží Veleslavín and then the A (green) underground line to Můstek, change to the B (yellow) line. You can also take the bus 100 from the airport to Zličín and then change directly to the B (yellow) underground line.

Take the B (yellow) underground line to Černý Most. It is the last station, so the direction is also Černý Most.

Then take a bus to Chvaly. It’s just a 4-minute ride and there is a bus every few minutes. The bus stop is located just in front of the venue. Attention: Chvaly is a request stop. If you want to get off, press the STOP button, if you want to get on, wave at the driver.

Day buses: 141, 171, 221, 222, 223, 224, 303, 344, 353, 398. (Note: On lines starting with 3, you have to get on through the front door and show your ticket to the driver.)

Night buses: N912 (twice per hour, leaving from Chvaly at :07 and :37). Change at Lehovec for the night tram N94 to the city centre.

From the main train station (Praha Hlavní nádraží), you can also take a train to station Horní Počernice. During the day, there is a train every hour. Then either walk ca 20 minutes to Chvalská stodola, or take bus to Chvaly (2 stops).

You can search your connection on

By car

The address is Chvalská stodola, Na Chvalské tvrzi 857/1a, 19300 Praha 20 - Horní Počernice.

As it is far away from the city centre, it should be relatively easy to find a place to park. There is a parking place next to the venue for the lucky ones who arrive first.


When buying your ticket, you will be able to book a place for your sleeping bag in a gym. The address of the gym is ZŠ Tolerance, Mochovská 570. It is around 500 m from the underground station Hloubětín (line B) or tram stop Sídliště Hloubětín. At night, take the night bus N912 to Lehovec and then tram 92 to Sídliště Hloubětín. The journey takes 18 minutes.

Don’t forget your sleeping bag, sleeping mat, light and earplugs.

The other option is to find accommodation on your own. We recommend searching around night tram lines 92 or 94. However, night trams (or buses) will take you also to the city center. You can change between night trams at Lazarská and between night buses at I. P. Pavlova.


Some refreshments will be available at the bar during the bals.

We won’t provide any food during the day since there are several restaurants close to the venue (Czech, Italian, Chinese, Indian, pizza), as well as two supermarkets, Lidl (open from 7:00 to 22:00 and 8:00 to 22:00 on Sundays) and Penny (open from 7:00 to 21:00 every day).

Furthermore, there is a big shopping centre close to the underground station Černý Most (4 minutes by bus from the venue), open every day from 9:00 to 21:00, where you will find many other restaurants (including running sushi, burger, Thai, KFC and McDonalds) and shops.
