Buying Train Tickets and Seat Reservations

České dráhy (Czech Railways)

It is usually not necessary to buy your train ticket in advance if you travel with Czech Railways. You can simply buy tickets at the train station before your trip. You may want to get a seat reservation with your ticket to make sure that you can get a place to sit if the train is likely to be crowded, e.g. in peak commute times, such as on Friday afternoons, Sunday afternoons, and Monday mornings.
