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.

Yehliu Geopark & Small Town Escape Day Tour

Stephen was a terrific host to my group of 4, which included my parents, husband and myself. Naturally, we are all different ages, but there was something for everyone in Stephen's tour. The Geopark tour would not have been the same without Stephen, who used to work as a guide for the park. His experience and knowledge certainly showed as walked us through the park -- we felt like VIPs because the park employees all know and recognize Stephen. The very best part of the tour was hiking thru an "uncharted" part of the park where absolutely no tourists are found. You feel like you are on another world -- absolutely breathtaking -- and something that we would not have been able to do without Stephen. Finally, Stephen took us to a DELICIOUS restaurant whose food I still day dream about until this day... all fresh locally caught seafood whose taste cannot be beat. Thank you Stephen for making our experience unforgettable!

Ultimate Local Floating Market & Boat Tour

We had a great day at the floating market with Zarut. He met us at the station and we took a cab to the market. He walked us through the market showing us a wide variety of foods that the locals sell and eat. We then went on a boat tour of the "floating market". Since this market is smaller, there weren't as many sellers on the water, but it was still very interesting. After the ride Zarut then picked out some delicious foods that we could try. It was a great day, and once in a lifetime experience!
