Public Transportation

Public transportation in Prague is very convenient and very reliable.
The closest metro station is Staroměstská (A-line = green), the closest tram stop is also called Staroměstská (tram 2, 17, 18).
You will find more detailed information on public transportation, including fares here.

Find the best connection that is available within the Prague Integrated Transport system in the PID app. You can download it for free in GooglePlay or App Store.

NB: Prague taxis are safe, but they very often charge excessive price unless you order ahead, ideally online. 

Airport Transfers

Don’t hesitate to use public transportation – it is fast, convenient, and cheap. There is a bus stop right in front of the airport terminal. Take the bus 119 all the way to the terminal station Nádraží Veleslavín (approx. 15 minutes). Change to the metro (A-line = green) and you will reach the centre of Prague in 10 minutes.
You will need the 90 minute ticket (40 CZK, approx. 1,50 Euro). You can buy it contactless in a machine located in the bus. The ticket is already printed with a date and time, and you do not validate it. The ticket is valid for any transportation means within the 90 minutes, i.e. for your whole journey.

Starting from spring 2023, there will be an Uber service for a fixed price – we will provide further information here in due course. We do not recommend taking any random taxi waiting at the airport, you might very likely get ripped off.

Getting Around by Bike

Finally, bikes are becoming a common means of transport in Prague. There are some bikesharing companies, such as ReKola or NextBike, and also some bike rentals, e.g. Okolo.

More detailed information and maps on getting around Prague by bike are here. (And there is an app, too – in GooglePlay or App Store).
