The Prague airport is located about 15 km/9 miles from the city center. It takes approximately 25 - 30 minutes (40 minutes in heavy traffic) to reach the center by car and about 30 minutes on public transport (bus + subway).


After you get off your flight in Prague, you will have several options of arriving at your destination: public transportation, taxi, a shuttle company, or a pickup previously arranged with your hotel.

Public transportation provides the cheapest way of getting to downtown Prague. It is easy to use, clean, reliable, and runs frequently. Taking public transport will include some walking and the buses and subway can be crowded at peak hours, so if you have a lot of luggage, you may want to take a taxi or use a door-to-door transfer service.
