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.

Athens Evening Food Tour: 10 Tastings

I contacted Marina to arrange a custom tour of Athens on my arrival day to the city. Essentially, I wanted to blend an intro tour along with some street food and a wine tasting. Marina ended up planning exactly what I was hoping for!

Starting off in the center of the city, she gave me an overview of the central neighborhoods. Along the way, we stopped in a few places for traditional snacks and finished at a tasting she had arranged at a wine bar, where I was able to try 4 very different and wonderful Greek wines paired with cheeses and lamb prosciutto. I enjoyed the wine bar so much that I returned the following night for more! Marina also gave me a bunch of other suggestions for places and things to try during my time in Athens.

If you're really into food and wine, there cannot be a better guide in Athens than Marina! Thank you so much!

Magical 3 Days in the Merzouga Sahara Desert

My husband and I took the 3 Days in the Merzouga Sahara Desert trip with Abdul and had an amazing experience that we'll never forget. From the moment Abdul picked us up to the moment he dropped us back off, he was a gracious host and skillful driver. He shared his love and knowledge of his homeland with us as he drove us throughout the Sahara. The places he took us gave us a wonderful introduction to this fascinating place, and the camel trek into the desert and night's stay in a tent under the incredibly starry sky truely was magical.

The True Flavors of Porto: 10 Tastings

Helena was a great and gracious tour guide. She took us to many shops in town that we definitely would never have gone into on our own, which was our main hope for this food tour! She was amiable, funny, and easy to talk to. We both had a great time on our tour with her!
