If you’re looking to save your pennies then grab your luggage and hop on a local bus. City bus number 119 connects the airport with Nádraží Veleslavín green line Metro station, while number 100 stops off at yellow line station Zličín. Buses run approximately every 15 minutes all through the day, with a gap in services between 11.30pm and 4.30am. But Prague transfers via shuttle bus could prove a more convenient option.
Plenty of companies offer services connecting the airport with the major Prague hotels, sights and stations. CEDAZ Minibuses is the most established, with services leaving from just outside the arrivals foyer every 30 minutes between 7.30am and 7pm. Minibus Prague and Prague Airport Shuttle also offer Prague transfers at varying costs.
AAA Taxi, the city’s biggest taxi company, has booths in both terminals and offers fixed rate journeys, which is great if you’re worried about being ripped off. You can also pick up a ride from the taxi rank in front of the airport. Expect to pay around 600 CZK for the journey to Prague city centre.
Once you’ve made it into town, getting around Prague is enjoyably straightforward. Prague has an integrated public transport system and tickets are valid across metro, tram and bus services. You can buy single tickets as well as one-day, three-day and one-month passes from newsagents, metro stations and public transport information centres.
If you’re flying in then it’s worth stopping off at the airport’s information centre, where you’ll be able to buy tickets as well as pick up free tram and metro maps. Local sightseeing is best achieved either on foot or via tram. The most popular trams (including number 9, which links Žižkov, the main train station, Wenceslas Square, the National Theatre and Smíchov) run every four minutes, and all services are fairly consistent between 4.30am and midnight. A speedier way of getting around Prague is to take the metro, which has three lines covering most of the city centre.
Fancy travelling further afield? A network of bus routes covers the suburbs, while trains from central Prague Hlavní Nádraží station connect the city with the rest of Europe. Shorter journeys can be done in a taxi, but heavy traffic can sometimes make this a frustrating way of getting around Prague.
