Travel to Prague

  • by plane

  • by train

The main railway station (Praha – Hlavní nádraží) is located in the center of the city, accessible directly by metro (line C) and several tram lines.

  • by car (but beware: parking in the center is pretty difficult)

Getting around the city

Public transportation in Prague includes trams, buses and subway (Metro).
Information about lines, tickets and schedules can be found at


General advice what to look for:

  • If you want easy walking distance, then Prague 1 (Staré město/Old Town, Nové Město/New Town, or Malá strana/Lesser Town) would be the right general areas
  • If you don’t mind a little more walking, then try Prague 2-Nové město/New Town
  • Otherwise look for hotels that are on the subway (e.g. Prague 2-Vinohrady but also many other districts)

In general, the Prague transportation system has a very dense network of trams and subways and is extremely reliable and not hard to navigate.
