How to find us?

The office is at the Botanical Garden of the Faculty of Sciences in the street Na Slupi, building no.  433/16, 2nd floor. See the map.

It is easiest to reach us by the metro. Take line B to the Karlovo Náměstí (Charles Square in English) station. Take tram no. 14, 18 or 24 from there to Botanická Zahrada (Botanical Garden in English). It is the first stop. 
You can also walk from the I.P. Pavlova metro station on line C. It is about 15 minutes of walk.

The office hours are temporarily canceled due to the current situation regarding the spread of COVID-19. Instead of a personal visit students use e-mail / telephone to communicate with the department. An urgent personal visit is possible by prior arrangement with a department clerk.

The botanical garden can be closed. Please have prepared the telephone number of the clerk with whom you have assigned the visit (so you can call her/him on arrival at the gate to the Botanical Garden).

Documents delivered via e-mail sent from an address with a faculty / university domain temporarily replace the originals. Students will add original documents to the study file later, according to the instructions of the study department clerks.
