The recommended way of getting from the airport to the bus terminals is:
- Use city bus no. 100 from the Prague Ruzyně Airport to the Nové Butovice Metro Station on the yellow line B (takes about 20 minutes).
- Then take the metro from Nové Butovice Metro Station to the bus terminal Florenc (takes about 20 minutes) or to the bus terminal Na Knížecí (about 10 minutes, exit Na Knížecí).
- The bus terminal Praha-Roztyly is located on the metro line C (red), about 20 minutes from the Florenc Metro station.
You can find more about public transportation in Prague at the Prague Public Transit company, or specifically about metro at MetroWeb. You can also find information about Český Krumlov, including transportation and maps at the Český Krumlov tourist service pages.
From the airport to Prague city
You can use one of the following means of transportation:
- Airport cabs (these are taxis that can only be found at the airport) operated by a private company are parked outside the arrival hall and they are clearly marked on the sides. These will charge between 400 CZK and 900 CZK depending on what part of the city you travel to. As with other similar services there are good drivers and bad drivers and we would recommend this service only to people prepared to pay however much it may be for the transfer to the centre.
- We recommend using the CEDAZ shuttle van which runs every 30 minutes from 06:00 to 21:00 between the airport and metro (Dejvická) for 90 CZK. It takes about 30 minutes and the van is comfortable. Tickets are available onboard. The CEDAZ company also provides door-to-door service for 1-4 persons for a fixed price of 480 CZK for one way into the city centre. The CEDAZ stand is located just in front of the Airport arrival hall. See more at the web page of CEDAZ.
The Prague Public Transit company runs bus no. 119 (approx every 15 minutes from
4:30 am to 11:30 pm) between the airport and metro station Dejvická, where the
Diplomat hotel is located. The journey takes about 20 minutes.
Don't forget to buy a 20 CZK ticket from the news-stand or from the yellow machine at the airport. You should also buy and validate a 10 CZK ticket for any suitcase.
Public transportation in Prague
Public transportation – metro (subway), trams, and buses – works excellently in Prague. It operates from 5 a.m. till midnight, and there are special night trams and buses. Tickets can be bought in yellow vending machines (in each metro station) or at news-stands for CZK 20. A ticket must be time-stamped upon boarding a bus or tram for the first time or at the entrance to the metro. A time-stamped ticket remains valid for the next 75 minutes. As long as the ticket is valid you can make as many transfers as you wish. A one-day card can be purchased for CZK 80, a three-day card for CZK 220 and a seven-day card for CZK 280.
For more information regarding tariffs, routes and timetables please visit the pages of the Prague Public Transport company.
You need a valid passport to enter the Czech Republic.
Citizens of most EU countries, U.S.A., Israel, and some other countries do not need a visa for short-term visits. However, due to changes made in policy recently, citizens of some countries, e.g., Canada now do need a visa to enter the Czech Republic.
Since the regulations can change, we suggest checking the website of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs or with the Czech Embassy or Consulate in your country about regulations for your nationality.
