How to get around Prague?
The centre of Prague can easily be explored on foot, while the sights and monuments beyond can be reached quickly and comfortably by public transport. The transport operator is the Transport Company of the Capital City of Prague / Dopravní podnik hlavního města Prahy (DP Praha), which operates several modes of transport: metro, buses, trams and cable cars.
- The Prague Metro (Pražské metro) consists of three lines: A - Green, B - Yellow and C - Red. It has 61 stations on routes connecting the city suburbs with the centre. The metro runs daily from 05:00 to 24:00, with departures every 2-3 minutes during peak hours
- Trams in Prague (Tramvaje v Praze) have one of the longest networks in Europe, with a total of 142.4 km of routes and around 600 stops. Prague has 37 tram lines (26 daytime No. 1-26, 9 nighttime No. 90-99, and two historical No. 42 and 43). They run from 04:30 to 01:00, and the night ones from 24:00 to 05:00/06:00. You can still see the iconic Tatra T3 trams on their routes.
- City buses in Prague include about 130 bus lines that go where tram and metro cannot. The numbering of the lines depends on the type of bus (express, night, out-of-town), and you can find detailed information and timetables here.
- The funicular (Lanová dráha do Petřín) is an electric funicular that connects the Malá Strana district (Újezd stop) with the top of Petřín Hill. The Nebozízek stop is located on the route.
We recommend using the DP Praha connection search engine or searching for connections on Google Maps.
