Czech Republic, Prague Guide (B): One Day Only – Prague, Czech Republic

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is a well-known and popular destination in central Europe. This is not surprising because it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We used to live in Prague for a few years and we are always excited to come back. This is our recommended one-day itinerary to help you with your planning if you are short of time. 

The main international airport is Vaclav Havel Airport Prague (PRG), formerly known as Prague Ruzyne International Airport.

The cheapest way to get from the airport to the city centre is to take the public bus (line numbers 119, which is shorter and faster, or 100). Get off at the last stop and continue by the subway (metro). The Airport Express bus is slightly more expensive, but it will take you from the airport to the Prague Main Railway Station (Hlavni nadrazi). This is located just off Wenceslas Square (Vaclavske namesti) and it is connected to the subway system. You can also use some of the shared shuttle buses or organise the transport with your hotel.
