Prague Terminal 1

Václav Havel Airport Prague. Terminal 1 is dedicated for departures to countries outside of the Schengen Area. Terminal 2 handles departures to the Schengen Area member states.


Taxi drivers have quite a bad reputation in Prague. It's recommended to check the fares and ask about the final price before the ride. More tips here. Use one of the popular apps to play safe: Uber and Liftago are reliable. 

From the airport to the city centre

You´re probably coming to Prague by plane, which means that you´ll be landing at the Václav Havel Airport. There are many taxicab stands and privately operated shuttles there, but we suggest you go for the bus No. 119 for the price of a regular public transport ticket. It will take you to the green metro line station Nádraží Veleslavín, from where you can take a ride to the Wenceslas Square at the station Můstek (bottom of the square) or Museum (top of the square). Tickets can be bought in yellow vending machines and we recommend you to buy the basic adult 32 CZK ticket for 90 minutes.

To Prague by train or bus

Another poplular way of travelling to Prague is by train. You´ll be ariving at thePraha-Hlavní nádraží station right in the heart of Prague next to Wenceslas Square, so no need to travel far to see the sights. You can also arriveby bus to theFlorenc bus station.Even though its surroundings might not look very appealing, you are in fact just a tram stop from Náměstí Republiky and the beginning of the historical Old Town.

Travelling around Prague

The public transport system of Prague is one of the best in the world, they say, and its also very easy to understand - 3 metro lines (green, red and yellow) with junctions in the city centre, tens of tram lines and hundreds of buses.The fare prices are reasonable - 110 Kč / 1 adult for a one-day ticket - and if you want to make the most of it, you should also use it for the Petřín cable car or a ferry, which can take you across the Vltava river (e.g. from Podolí to Smíchov.)

Taking the train to see beauties near Prague

Use the train to see interesting sights in the vicinity of Prague - the meandres of the Vltava and Berounka river and the countryside of Central Bohemia, where you can visit many castles and romantic ruins (for example Karlštejn, Křivoklát, Konopiště, Točník etc). You can find plenty of tips on your trips and tours on the internet or look for especially chosen activities in Prague and around by ActiveCzech.com.
