The beautiful and vibrant city of Prague (Praha in Czech), inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage list has the most reliable transportation system in Europe. Getting around in Prague is easy, cheap and fast. Prague’s local transport connects to all parts of the city, and the best way to travel is to ply the metros, trams and buses.
Take the metros for long distances, which mostly run underground and have around 61 stations. Running from 5.00am to midnight, all stations are well-equipped with escalators, and most of the stations are disabled-access friendly.

You can buy tickets from kiosks (marked with ‘jizdenky’), metro stations, newspaper stands, DPP information offices, or via text message (SMS). Use these tickets for all types of transport including any transfers between them. The fares are halved for children between 6-and-15 years, and are free for children below 6 years.
