Traveling to Prague

The Václav Havel Airport Prague is located in the northwest outskirts of Prague, 12.4 Miles (20 kilometres) from the Corinthia Hotel Prague. 35 minutes by taxi, 1 hour by bus and underground.

How to get from the airport to the Corinthia Hotel Prague by public transport:

Take the 119 bus from the airport and get off on station Dejvicka. From there take a metro to the station Muzeum where you need to change to the C line and travel for two stops before disembarking at the stop nearest to the hotel—Vysehrad.

Traveling within Prague

Prague has a cheap and efficient public transport network of buses, trams and a metro, plus a funicular on Petrin Hill, also home to the Observation Tower. The historic centre is compact and pedestrian-only, but trams offer an inexpensive way of seeing the rest of the city and there is no shortage of downtown metro stations. After midnight, night trams and buses offer a limited service, usually every hour.

Tickets are valid on all modes of public transport but must be bought in advance and validated before each journey. A selection of travel passes is also available and need only be stamped once at the start of a journey. With much of the city being pedestrian friendly and finding parking difficult, seeing places on foot or by public transport is always to be recommended.

Maps, timetables, fares, and route planning are available in English on the Prague Public Transport website.


The Prague Metro network consists of 3 lines designated by letters and differentiated in color:

Metro operates daily from 5:00 am to 12:00 noon The time interval between train departures is approximately 2–3 minutes during the workday rush hours and 4–10 minutes during off-peak hours.


Daytime operation is from 4:30 am to midnight. Night operation is provided by tram numbers 51 to 59 in 30 minutes intervals. The central interchange station for night lines is Lazarská. Tram schedules are located at individual stops.

The daytime and night operation of buses is similar to tram operation. Night service is provided by bus numbers 501 to 513. Bus schedules are located at individual stops.
