How to go from the airport to the center of Prague

Location, travel, transport

The city can be reached from all European countries and cities very easily. Prague is accessible from two motorways – the D1 from the east (near the Austrian border) and the D8 from the west (near the German border). Prague is also accessible by train, bus or plane. The main railway station and the main coach station are right in the centre of the town. Nowadays the city of Prague plays an important role as one of the key traffic points in Europe, especially as a gate to access its eastern part.

Transportation in Prague

Prague has a good public transport system, which includes 3 metro lines, trams and buses. Prague’s Metro system is quite new and efficient. The Prague Metro operates daily 05:00-24:00 During peak hours trains run every 1 or 2 minutes and off peak at least every 10 minutes.

Daytime trams operate daily 04:30-24:00. The most popular trams run every 4 minutes. Night trams operate nightly 24:00-04:30. They run every 30 minutes, and are numbered 51 through 59.
