Public Transport

From the Airport

Prague has one international airport, which is located 15 km away from the city center. It takes approximately 25-40 minutes to reach the center by public transport. The cheapest way to go to the center is taking the bus, which costs 32 CZK. Here you can see the bus lines going from the Airport to Prague.

If you would like to travel by a shuttle bus, it will be around 130 CZK, or if you would like to use one of the taxi companies it will be around 500 CZK.

Prague has a cheap, efficient and highly integrated public transport system. There are two types of single-trip tickets:

  • 30-minute ticket 24 CZK (children 6-15 years: 12 CZK)

Both tickets can be used on any type of public transportation and allows transfers between lines (subway to subway, tram to tram, etc.) and transfers between different types of transport (subway to tram, tram to bus, etc.) for up to 30/90 minutes from validation.

If you stay in Prague for a while and you will use the public transport more often, then there are some tourist passes for you:

  • 24-hour pass 110 CZK (children 6-15 years: 55 CZK)
