Leaving Brazil, it is possible to reach Prague by several airlines, after connections in European cities such as Paris, Amsterdam and Frankfurt. Prague is served by Václav Havel Airport , which has two terminals and is about 16 kilometers away from the center of the Czech capital. To find out how to get out of Prague Airport, click here.
Those who are already on the Old Continent can choose, in addition to the plane, the train as a means of transport. However, it is good to know that this is not always the fastest way, depending on the place of departure, and the cheapest.
Whoever is in Amsterdam, for example, can go to Prague by train, passing through Berlin, Germany. The trip will take around 12 hours and you can check all the information – and even buy your ticket – right on the Deutsche Bahn website.
Modern Railjet trains depart from Vienna, Austria, to Prague on a pleasant journey that lasts about four hours. More information on schedules and ticket purchases here or on the official website of the Czech Railways . Those in Budapest, Hungary, will also be able to access Prague by train. Tip from the MD: the night stretches are usually much more affordable. More information and purchase tickets here.
If you want to leave another European city that is not listed above, find out about itineraries, prices and timetables on the website of Deutsche Bahn, the German railway company.
Another option to access the capital of the Czech Republic is the bus, especially if the intention is to save on the ticket price and time is not a problem. The Eurolines is one of the passenger transport companies more known in Europe and connects Prague to cities like Paris (from € 33), Berlin (from € 12.96), Vienna (from € 7) and Bratislava (from € 9.26).
On the company’s website, it is possible to check the entire itinerary, departure times, prices and also purchase your ticket in advance.
Accessing Prague by car can be a good option for those planning a trip to other nearby cities, but using the vehicle to get around there does not pay off. This is because the destination is excellent to be explored on foot, public transport usually meets the needs of the tourist, not to mention that the traffic is not usually very smooth in certain areas.
Ah, keep in mind that many parking spaces in the central area of the city are for residents only (marked with the letter “P” and a blue line), so to avoid fines, it is best to leave your car at the hotel or in parking lots paid, like one next to the central train station.
