Transportation Guide:

Airport

Welcome to Václav Havel Airport Prague. This airport handles flights of most European carriers and also some overseas flights. It is located 30-45 minutes by car from the centre of Prague. There is a good connection between the airport and city centre by public transport buses and taxis. Unfortunately there is no subway or train connection to the city from the airport. You should buy a ticket before travelling and these can be found at the arrival hall, at ticket machines or at the newsagents (if arriving late and all shops are closed buy a ticket from the driver but large banknotes are not accepted).

 

Public transport

Prague has a very sophisticated subway, tram and bus transport system. The Prague underground is quite new and efficient. At peak times, trains run every 2 or 3 minutes, and during off-peak hours at least every 8-10 minutes.

You can find more information about Prague public transport on the web pageshttp://www.dpp.cz/en/

 

Short-term passes (unlimited travel within ticket validity)

 

Most visitors find travel passes cost effective and hassle free. If you use public transport more than a few times a day, definitely go for one. Also 3 and 5 day passes allow free transport for a child aged between 6 and 14 (inclusive).

 

- 24-hour pass: 110 CZK / 4.30 EUR

- 3-day pass (72 hours): 310 CZK / 12.20 EUR

Only properly validated tickets are valid
