Getting to Prague

Prague is the hub of the Czech motorway network. Thanks to that, Prague is accessible from all directions. For using motorways in Czech Republic, all cars are supposed to have a motorway stamp. The stamp for 10 days costs approximately €10 and is available at all petrol stations or post offices. (more info here).

Finding a parking place for your car in the city centre can be difficult since most of the available parking places in the city districts Prague 1, Prague 2, Prague 3 and Prague 7 are designated only for their residents (they are marked with a blue line on the road). That’s why it is recommended to request a parking space at your place of stay.

Coaches connect Prague with the rest of Europe. Most important bus station Florenc is situated downtown near the Florenc metro station. Some buses terminate at other stations – Roztyly, Černý Most, Dejvice, Na Knížecí, Holešovice, Želivského – and all are situated near metro stations as well.

There are two international train stations in Prague – the Central station (Hlavni nadrazi) and Holesovice station. Both are connected with the city centre by the metro. For more info about trains to Prague check the website of the Czech railways or your local train transportation provider.

Vaclav Havel International Airport is situated in Ruzyne and offers flights inside and outside the EU. The City can be reached by public transport (buses go to metro lines A or B – one ticket cost approx. €1,60) or by taxi (€20 – €24 one journey, please use only official taxi services – only yellow cabs!).
