Travel instructions

As a popular tourist destination, Prague is well connected to European countries. There are direct flights to Prague International Airport - Ruzyně (PRG) from most capitals in Europe and from some overseas countries like U.S.A. and Canada. The national airlines are Czech Airlines (CSA) which are a member of SkyTeam. Many low-fare airlines have flights to Prague, e.g. SmartWings operate from Prague.

How to get to your hotel from the airport by public transit?
First you have to buy a single ride public transport ticket which costs 12CZK, either at a newsstand inside the terminal or from a ticket machine at the bus stop, which is located in front of the terminal. To buy tickets from the machine you will need coins. The ticket is valid for 90 minutes on weekends and off peak on weekdays (only 60 minutes peak hours on weekdays) which should be enough even for the most distant hotels.
Once you have the ticket board bus No.119 (its schedule is posted at the bus stop), validate the ticket (time stamp) and enjoy the ride (if this is possible on a public transit bus). Go all the way to its last stop, which is "Dejvická". How to proceed from here depends on which hotel you are going to (Look in Accommodation section).

International trains are usually going to Holešovice station (Nádraží Holešovice) or to Main Station (Hlavní nádraží) which are both well integrated in the public transport system. There are Metro (underground/subway) stops directly accessible from the lobby of train stations (Metro red line C).
