Parking in Prague

Prague is unfortunately as congested as most other European cities, and finding a parking spot can be a challenge. We recommend using public transportation as much as possible. If you have to drive and park, here are some tips:


Street Parking

There are three parking zones in the city center:

Prague Orange Zone Parking Meter

Orange - 2-hour parking with a meter, 40 CZK (1.60 EUR) per hour, in effect 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Green - 6-hour parking with a meter, 30 CZK (1.25 EUR) per hour, in effect 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Blue - long-term parking for residents and businesses; non-residents are not allowed to park in blue zones

If you leave your car parked on the street, make sure you don't leave any valuables inside that could attract the attention of car burglars.

Park & Ride Parking Lots at Subway Stations (4 a.m. - 1 a.m.)

Unless you have to drive and park in the city center, you will be better off leaving your car at a guarded parking lot on the outskirts. Park & Ride (P+R) lots are located at many metro stations outside of the city center, e.g. at Skalka, Zličín, Nové Butovice, Opatov, Chodov, Ládví, Rajská zahrada, Černý most, Palmovka, Nádraží Holešovice. The purpose of these lots is to encourage people to take public transportation and improve the bad traffic situation in the center. The lots are guarded and cost only 20 CZK (0.80 EUR) for the day (4 a.m. - 1 a.m.), plus the cost of a public transport ticket. They open at 4 a.m. and close with the last metro around 1 a.m. If you do not pick up your car before the lot closes and leave it parked there overnight, you will be charged a penalty of 100 CZK.
