Travel options in Prague

The city center itself is rather small and compact (about 2.5 miles) and that makes travel in Prague relatively easy. It’s also an easy city to navigate and you can pretty much walk between all the main tourist attractions. In fact many historical areas like the Charles Bridge, Prague Castle and Old Town Square can only be explored by walking. So get yourself some comfy shoes! Ulice is the Czech word for street and náměstí – square, but most of the red street signs simply have the name like Pařížská or Betlémska.

Travel options in Prague

If you’re going far, it’s winter or you have a lot of luggage, then taxis can be a good option, but there can be considerable traffic congestion in the city center — so your short taxi ride can end up costing a bit more than you thought!

The simplest way around, like in most European capitals is to use the public transit system for travel in Prague. You can buy short-trip tickets, 24-hour pass tickets and three day or one month passes. These tickets are valid for all Prague public transport (trams, trains and busses). Make sure you always validate the ticket inside the metro station or in the machines inside the tram or bus. Buy long trip tickets at newsagents, metro stations and Public Transport Information Centers, and short trip tickets at the yellow automat machines located near many (but not all) public transport stops.

The Metro trains operate daily from 5am to midnight, operate a service every 2-3 minutes during peak hours, and 4-9 minutes after 19:00 and are a safe and convenient way to travel in Prague. There are three lines which are easily identified by both letter and color: A (green), B (yellow), and C (red). Make sure you pick up a Prague metro map from the station, hotel or information kiosk.

You can hire bikes — and this is a great way to travel in Prague — in some parts there have been bike lanes added to wider pavement areas, although Prague isn’t a bike friendly as Berlin or Amsterdam. Just be cautious, courteous and give way to people. The Vltava River has many areas where you can bike away from cars — and it provides a lovely river-side route through the city.

Discover the Best Local Food Spots at Night

Manjeet was a wonderful tour guide. I was worried things would be a bit awkward with a one on one tour but she was very informative, easy to talk to and know lots about the food I was trying. Highly recommended!

Singapore's Tasty Tour for Little Foodies

I am so pleased I booked WithLocals for our recent 4 day break in Singapore. We met William the first morning of our stay in Singapore - it was the best! Thank you so much William for showing us parts of Singapore we would never have found out about in such a short space of time. William was friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the city. We tried some amazing foods and he was also flexible with altering the tour to suit our needs - even letting us stop off to try Durian (with our plastic gloves at the ready!) I couldn't recommend this tour highly enough, it heavily influenced what we did in the subsequent days - we will never forget it and can't wait to visit Singapore again one day.

Street Food Tour of Colombo: the 10 Tastings

The food tour was amazing, Miyuru was a great guide, explaining a lot about the Sri Lankan cousine and also about the city of Colombo. He took us to real local places, which we definitely wouldn't visit on our own and the food was delicious. We also had a lot of fun, so all in all it is a must do tour when you are in Colombo.
