Getting Around


Václav Havel Airport handles flights of most European carriers and also 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 and taxis. You can easily get to the city centre using one of the public buses. For the quickest transport to the city centre or the nearest metro station we advise using routes 119 and 100 (map). Unfortunately there is no subway or train connection to the city.

Public Transport

Prague has a good public transport system, which includes 3 metro lines, trams and buses. Prague’s Metro system is quite new and efficient. During peak hours trains run every 1 or 2 minutes and off peak at least every 10 minutes. Passengers need a valid ticket to travel on the city public transport system. The ticket must be stamped as soon as you get on a bus or tram, or enter the transport area (in the case of a metro station). Tickets can be purchased in automatic machines at each metro station, at surface transport stops or at news stands. Please note that you need to mark the ticket when you enter the metro / tram / bus for the first time.
