Getting in and around Prague

If you are here in Prague for the first time, there is no need to be overwhelmed by the transportation systems. The city transit system, whether it be tram, metro, or bus, is generally very comfortable, clean, and quite reasonably priced.However, when you first arrive, the following information may be of some assistance.

GETTING TO and FROM the Prague Ruzyně airport to the city center:
Bus & Underground Metro 
You can take bus 119 from the airport to the Dejvicka metro station, then follow the green metro line (A) to the center (stations Mustek or Muzeum). The trip takes about 45 minutes.

After midnight, Bus & Tram 
The night bus 510 runs between midnight and 3.30 a.m. to the Divoka Sarka tram stop. From there, you can take tram 51 to the Dejvicka metro station or continue to the city center.

CEDAZ Minibus
Cedaz operates a minivan service from the airport (7:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.) to Namesti Republiky every 30 minutes for 120 CZK per person. Departure from Namesti Republiky is between 7:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. You can often negotiate with the driver if you have your own group of people and are all going to the same hotel.

Taxi
Always ask for the price before getting into the taxi, and say that you need a receipt. A trip to the center will cost approximately 700 CZK. The dispatcher at the airport will usually be able to answer your questions.
