Václav Havel Prague Airport

As the capital’s main airport Václav Havel Prague Airport (named after the dissident writer and first post-communist president) is the largest in the Czech Republic and caters to domestic flights and international traffic. Flights go to and from Prague and 130 destinations all over the world with around 50 airlines. The airport sees more than 11 million passengers pass through each year. It was built from 1933-1937 and is 17 km from the center of Prague, located in the northwestern edge of the city.

The International Airport in Prague is divided into two parts: the old and new airport. There is a terminal for the private flights in the old part, and terminals 1 and 2 in the new. As a first time visitor you’ll be arriving at one of the new terminals.

Terminal 1 (T1) - intercontinental flights including flights from the UK, North America, Middle East, Africa and Asia

Terminal 2 (T2) - for flights from EU countries, participants in the Schengen Agreement.

Terminal 3 (T3) - used for VIP and private flights, official visits to the country, charter flights.

There are tourist information offices in the Arrivals Hall, where the staff speaks English and German (as well as Czech if you’re keen to try out your new language skills!) and will provide any information and assistance regarding connections to the city or other flights. Maps of the city are free here. Václav Havel Prague Airport offers standard services for travelers, including exchange offices, ATMs, restaurants, stores and counters for car rental agencies and hotel reservations.

Transportation from Václav Havel Airport

It takes about 20-25 minutes to get from Prague Airport to the city center by car or 50 minutes by public transport. You can use bus, taxi, shuttle or rent a car at the airport.

Unlike some international airports which are well served by trains, the only way (and cheapest) is using public transport to and from Václav Havel Prague Airport. Prices for the bus vary a bit (the Airport Express bus which takes less time is more expensive) but the transit system is pretty to navigate. You need to get yourself a ticket and you can get these from Public Transport counters in Arrival Halls of Terminals 1 & 2 (from 7 am to 10 pm), automats placed at bus stops, or directly from the bus driver.

A regular shuttle between Václav Havel Prague Airport and the city close to Republic Square leaves daily every 30 minutes (7:30 am - 7:00 pm).

If you’ve got a bit of luggage and want to go directly to the hotel then taxi counters are located at the Arrivals Hall of Terminal 1 and 2.

Day Tour to Fátima, Nazaré & Alcobaça

We had a great trip with Nuno. He picked us up early so we avoided the crowds, and we were able so see many of the sights without too many people around. He suggested really good places to eat and was very knowledgeable about all of the sights. He was very accommodating with timing and we never felt rushed, even though we saw way more than we had hoped! Thank you, Nuno!

French Wine Tasting with a Wine Expert

Michel was a gracious host and a joy to meet. I would recommend any of his tours regardless of your familiarity with wine going in.

Cooking Class at Classic Home Cooking School

I had a wonderful experience with Vannee, discovering Thai cuisine! Her husband and she came to pick me up at the hostel where I ws staying and they brought me to a local market, where Vannee explained to me the different herbs and vegetables. As soon as I told her that I love coconut and that I liked trying khao soi she decided to make me cook exactly those dishes. She is really nice and speaks good English so it’s easy to learn, and you even get a book with all Thai recipes inside! Definitely recommended!
