Getting around in Prague

Prague has an integrated metro, tram and bus network – tickets are valid on all types of transport, and for transfers between them.

  • Tram: Extensive network of routes, best way for getting around shorter distances between neighbourhoods. Full service from 5 am to 12.30 am; limited service through the night.
  • Metro: Fast and frequent, good for visiting outlying areas or covering longer distances. It runs from 5 am to midnight.
  • Bus: Buses are not much use in the city centre, except for travelling to the airport or in areas not covered by tram or metro. They run from 4.30 am to around midnight, plus limited night service.
  • Taxi: Good value though prone to rip-off drivers in tourist areas, especially late at night.

Prague castle

Prague Castle – Pražský hrad, or just hrad to Czechs – is Prague’s most popular attraction. Within its walls lies a varied and fascinating collection of historic buildings, museums and galleries that are home to some of the Czech Republic’s greatest artistic and cultural treasures.

Veletržní Palác

The National Gallery’s collection of ‘Art of the 19th, 20th and 21st Centuries’ is spread over four floors and is a strong contender for Prague’s best museum. It has an unexpectedly rich collection of world masters, including works from Van Gogh, Picasso, Schiele, Klimt and on and on, but the holdings of Czech interwar abstract, surrealist and cubist art are worth the trip alone.

St. Vitus Cathedral
