Students with the European Health Insurance Card (EU citizens) need to register at Všeobecná zdravotní pojišťovna and obtain their health insurance number before their first visit to the doctor.

The opening hours are from 3 pm to 7 am on week days and from 7 am to 7 pm at weekends. You must produce a proof of medical expenses insurance.
