Prague Transportation System

Prague has one of the best public transportation systems in Europe. The metro, trams and buses are used by two-thirds of Prague's population and cover the majority of the city and outskirts.

The metro especially makes getting around town a breeze since it enables you to cover long distances in a matter of minutes. If you can't continue to your destination on foot, you'll be able to catch a tram or bus from near the subway station.

If you are flying into Prague, your first concern probably is how to get to your destination from the airport. The Airport - Downtown section is a good one to read.

To move around town, we recommend using public transport over driving or taking a taxi. The traffic situation in the city center has become pretty bad in the past decade. If you do need to drive or take a cab, read the Parking and Taking a Taxi pages.

If you're going to be staying in Prague for a few days, you may want to buy a tourist pass that will enable you to use any type of mass transit as many times as you want within the time period for which your pass is valid. A list of passes and other ticket information is provided on our Tickets & Passes page.
