    Saturday we will arrive in prague by bus, in the "Praha,ÚAN Florenc
    " station. Well I guess that's a station :).

    Also,I searched how to get to our final destination on www.vlak.cz, and it said we have to take another bus, also from "Praha,ÚAN Florenc

    Now I don't really have an idea how everything looks over there, so is this a station, and is it a bit easy to find where all the connections are?

    Hello Chem,

    If the Florenc station is your final destination, all you will have to take is a metro. The metro station there bears the same name Florenc. When you get off the bus go through the main building and turn left as you walk out. Then you`ll see the sign "M", which means you`ve made it to the metro station in question.

    Talking of the trains, there are three main train stations in Prague : Praha hlavní nádraží, Praha Masarykovo nádraží, Praha Holešovice.

    If your bus, by chance, ended up at the Praha Holesovice bus terminus, no need to panic. The Holesovice metro and train stations are located under one roof.

    Enjoy your stay!

    Hi thank for your help, but I'm afraid i'm not really getting it...

    You say that we still need to take a metro, but both station are called Florenc ? Is that station that big maybe?

    It would help if you told us what is your final destination.

    Hi chem,

    Do you need to reach your final destination by bus or train?
    If you need to take another bus then you will probably take it in the same bus station of your arrival to Prague, the Ústřední autobusové nádraží Praha Florenc (ÚAN Praha Florenc).
    There are different platforms there but also offices where you can buy tickets and check the timetables and a waiting hall.
    If you need to leave Prague by train then you will probably have to reach one of the train stations mentioned by Karel. To do this is very simple as all of these three station can be reached by metro. You can take the metro from just outside the Florenc bus station (ÚAN Praha Florenc).
    The metro station is also called Florenc (lines B and C).
    To get to the Hlavní nádraží také metro C and get off at Hlavní nádraží, to get to Masarykovo nádraží take metro B and get off at Náměstí Republiky, to get to nádraží Holešovice take metro C and get off at nádraží Holešovice.

    Hope this helps :)

    thanks again for the help. I need to take a bus, so it will probably be somewhere around my arrival place. The bus I take is 1911013 to Ostrava. But I found a map of the station, so I think I will find it easily (i hope :)), thanks again for all the help.

    Chem, people usually travel by train between Prague and Ostrava. If you get off at Florence, take metro to Hlavni nadrazi station, which is only one station from Florenc. Hlavní nádraží is where the trains to Ostrava depart from (every two hours or so).

    just to post a reply to how it went:

    florenc was indeed a bus station, we took the bus from there to zamberk (which went on till ostrava). it was very easy and comfortable.

    i had a great time in czech republic, I'll definatly go there again.

    grtz, burt
