11. ČESKÝ UKULELE FESTIVAL se bude konat, yes it will!

Jako vždy se uskuteční poslední červencový víkend, tedy 28.–30. 7. 2023, a jako vždy v nádherném Únětice brewery na okraji Prahy.

Kompletní program ještě není, ale již nyní můžeme oznámit některé z hlavních vystupujících.

FENG E. Zázračné dítě z Tchaj-wanu a hvězda America’s got talent a Asia’s got talent. Tento mladý virtuos nás všechny ohromí svým prvním vystoupením v Evropě.

Poté, co pro nás vystupoval online z jeho bytu v Los Angeles během hluboké Covidové doby, jsme nadšeni, že ho na festivalu můžeme mít osobně.

BARADA STREET Každý, kdo přišel na festival 2021, si bude pamatovat Barada Street a 30. 7. nás pobaví jejich úžasnou směsí akrobacie, grotesky, atletiky a samozřejmě ukulele.

How to get to the festival

Illustrated map of Únětice


Únětice is situated just outside of Prague and is a 15 minute drive from the airport.. If you are arriving by car from Prague, we recommend that you drive via Roztoky or Suchdol. From the airport or highway, we recommend to reach Únětice from the North. On the upper, northern side of Únětice there is plenty of available parking space, near the Sokolovna pub and in the housing development Svaty Jan above the pub. Please be considerate to the residents and do not block access to houses and garages.


Public transport

Public transport in Prague is usually easy and efficient.

Local bus timetable is available here..

The last bus from Únětice to Dejvická metro station leaves at 23.29. Make sure you don't miss it!

On the festival days, we will have extra public transport links available, especially the last buses to Horoměřice and Prague. If you are in accommodation in Suchdol, you can catch a 147 or 107 bus towards Prague and get off at Podbaba where you can catch the 355 to Horoměřice.

From Prague there is a bus line 355 going to Únětice.
Name of that bus station is Horoměřická.


When travelling in Prague, you usually choose between 30 minutes ticket for 24 CZK and 90 minutes ticket for 32 CZK. You can buy tickets in all metro stations. Únětice are just outside of Prague and these tickets are not sufficient. You have basically two possibilities:

→ Buy a combined ticket for Prague and Únětice valid for 90 minutes for 40 CZK (recommended), or
→ With a valid Prague ticket, pay additional surcharge 12 CZK to the bus driver. Be careful about the ticket validity. The bus drive from Dejvická to Únětice takes approx. 22 minutes.

Keep your tickets with you as the fines are nasty.


It is not advisable to catch a taxi on the street, call one, I normally use AAA taxis, their dispatching no. is: 14014 and they speak English. Companies such as Uber and Bolt work quite well in and around Prague. 14014.

Emergency numbers

Fire - 150
Medical Emergency (Ambulance/First Aid) - 155
Prague City Police - 156
Police - 158


VThere is limited accommodation available directly in the village, and most is reserved for the performers.


There will be a small basic camp site available in a garden close to the festival site, the camp site has a port-a-loo and a wash station but no showers. The exact location will be shown on the festival map.

Hotel Modrá Stodola

We have agreed excellent terms for festival goers at the Hotel Modrá Stodola. Modrá stodola v Horoměřicích. This village is just 2 km from where the festival takes place in Únětice and there is a direct bus link.

Penzion U Nováků

We can also recommend Penzion U Novákůover the hill in Roztoky. Unfortunatelly no direct bus, but a 40 minute walk from the festival or a short car ride.

Other local hotels:
Hotel Carl Inn – Suchdol
Pension Jasoň – Velké Přílepy

Budget variant

You can stay in the Czech University of Life Sciences Halls of Residence..
Of course, if you want to combine the festival with a stay in the beautiful city of Prague, there are hundreds of hotels throughout the city and the festival site is easily accessible by public transport. You can also choose Airbnb.
