Getting Around in Prague

Prague is a beautiful, fairytale-like city, fringed with picturesque streets and absorbing architecture. As you reach close to the historic city centre, you’ll soon realise it is often closed to traffic and pedestrians. Travel on foot to get the most wonderful experience from UNESCO protected sites such as Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square. Don’t be surprised if the cobbled lanes, beautiful architecture and fascinating history leave you spellbound!
Besides the main attractions in the city, some of Prague’s hidden gems are located far away and need some kind of public transportation or car hire to reach them. Fortunately, public transportation in Prague is efficient and safe for tourists. In fact, Prague boasts of having the most exceptional transport systems in Europe.
