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.

The Original Pilsner & Microbreweries Private Tour

We had a great time with Boris, including a rain storm on the Charles Bridge. He took us to out of the way places that we never would have found on our own. He was very entertaining and has a good command of English. We highly recommend!

Best of Paris tour: Highlights & Hidden Gems

Wir haben zur Einstimmung unserer Frankreichreise einen Stadtrundgang mit Mischa gebucht und es war wirklich ein schöner Einstieg für uns. Die 3,5 Stunden vergingen wie im Flug. Mischa hatte jede Menge zu erzählen und konnte gut mit unserem Sohn (10 J.), den sie immer wieder mit eingebunden hat. Mischa hatte auch einige Anekdoten zu berichten, die man sonst als Tourist nicht hört. Nicht zuletzt gab sie uns gute Tips für die nächsten Tage und auch wo man in Paris lieber nicht hingehen sollte. Zum Abschluß hat unser noch ganz viele Paris-Karten von ihr zur Erinnerung bekommen und war ganz happy. So wie wir auch, Lieben Dank an Dich, Mischa und bis zum nächsten Mal :)

Kelly Ana

Off the Beaten Track with a Local in Lisbon

Ana was amazing! Warm and accommodating to my endless random questions, not only did I feel like I learned about the unsung places in Lisbon but I got some great advice for things to do outside the tour. The brief stop in the pasteleria is perfect, and I loved getting on the bus as both elements broke up the walk a bit. Well constructed tour with someone that loves the city and can convey it well
