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.

Paris Kickstart Tour with a Local

William is an incredible guide. So friendly and knowledgeable. We walked through places in Paris I would never have ventured on my own & also visited staple landmarks, where William shared a number of interesting and historical facts. He also was just a fun and easy going guy to be around. I’d highly recommend William to anyone who wants to explore Paris from a local’s point of view. I had the most wonderful afternoon. Thanks Will!
