Respect festival 2015 - by Barbora Hrdá

The 20th edition

of the festival will again take place in the grounds of the Výstaviště Holešovice (Praha) on a picturesque meadow at the Bruselská cesta just behind the Stromovka park fence.

How to get there

Entrance to the festival area is from the exhibition grounds. But there is no need to go all the way through the labyrinth of the fairgrounds. You can walk all the way through the Stromovka Park and enter the exhibition grounds right behind Marold’s panorama (on your right). Festival entrance just few meters from there.

Public transport connection > Tram 6, 12, 71

Tram stop > Výstaviště Holešovice

Enter the park and follow posters with signs from there.
