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.

Best of Hong Kong Island Private Tour

We enjoyed the tour with Edward. Having been born and raised (for part of his life) in that area, he knew a lot of area, including details one would never find out unless with a true local.
The tour was an interesting mix of history, local life, and current events. Edward has an analytical way of presenting things in a very charming and sometimes humorous way. Definitely recommend him

Private Tour - The Best of Kuala Lumpur

Paul is an excellent guide! He is very patient and extremely knowledgeable on all things Kuala Lumpur. I found my walking tour with him to be absolutely enlightening and insightful! By the end of the tour, I definitely felt that I had connected with the city :) If you are like me and are looking for a tour that takes you to the 'must see' sites of KL plus enlightens you on the local culture - then I would recommend Paul! Had a such delightful time :)

Barcelona's Favourite Food Tour: 10 tastings

We had a great time wandering the streets of Barcelona with Tomas, ducking into some of the most hidden, off-the-beaten-path places, experiencing tapas we never would've had w/o his help. (best patatas bravas and vermouth we've ever had!!) Super friendly, interesting guy...my husband, teenage son and I all found his stories so fun. I wish him nothing but happiness! It was a highlight of our week in Barcelona.
