Getting Around

The public transport infrastructure consists of an intensely used integrated transport system of Prague Metro (its length is 59 km with 57 stations in total), Prague Tram System (including the "nostalgic tram" no. 91), buses, the Petřín funicular to Petřín Hill, and six ferrit. Prague has one of the highest rates of public transport usage in the world with 1.2 billion passenger journeys per annum.

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).
