Transport in Prague


Three routes of the Prague metro in combination with trams and buses make it possible to get to the required address very fast and comfortably.

The Prague metro, whose entire network has almost 60 km, includes the routes A, B and C, which pass through the centre of the city. The metro is in operation everyday from 5:00 to 24:00. Intervals are about two minutes at the times of the morning and afternoon rush hours, or about ten minutes at night. On Fridays and Saturdays, the operation is prolonged until 01:00 with other night connections.


The tram transport is the oldest one in Prague and it complements the metro magnificently. Intervals between trams during the day are very short and usually do not exceed ten minutes (intervals between trams at weekends are usually 15 minutes). The daily operation of trams ends usually shortly after midnight, last connections usually arrive in such times that they connect to the last trains of the metro. Then the night operation of trams begins. These are trams with two digit numbers beginning with the number 5. Night trams wait for each other in the places of their intersections and connect to night buses marked by three digit numbers also beginning by five. Intervals of night trams are usually half an hour. Night trams stop around five o'clock a.m., when the day operation of trams begins.


The operation of the bus transport concerns above all peripheral areas of the city. Buses are connections to terminals of the individual routes of the metro and many of them are also included in the suburban transport connections of the series 300 providing public transport in the surroundings of Prague. The only bus connection that passes through the city centre is the bus no. 133 with its terminal at Palach Square near the Charles Bridge or Old Town Square.

Prague ferries

Besides buses, trams and the metro, Prague public transport also includes six ferries, which offer transport across the River Vltava. The modern day history of Prague ferries is connected with the year 2005, when the ferries were integrated into the public transport system. First, the ferry P1 was put into operation, which provides the connection between Sedlc and Zámky in the northern edge of Prague. In the next two years, other two ferries P2 and P3 were established and in 2008, after the approval by the Board of Prague ( Rada hl. m. Prahy), operation of other two ferry boat lines P4 and P5 was initiated.


You can find three cableways in Prague and all three are also a great tourist attraction, because they offer interesting views of the city.

The oldest and the largest is the cableway to Petřín, which is a part of the public transport system of Prague, as – besides providing magnificent views of the city – it makes the journey from the centre to Strahov much faster and moreover it is a fast way to get to the Štefánik Astronomical Observatory, Petřín Lookout Tower and the Maze in Petřín.

The cableway in Zoo Prague facilitates ascension to upper parts of the zoological garden and it is also an attraction for visitors of the zoo, especially when the weather is good. Both cableways are under the administration of the company dealing with public transport in Prague called Dopravní podnik hl. města Prahy.

The third cableway serves for German and Austrian female tourists to catch a glimpse of the singer Karel Gott. This is at least said about the short ground cableway, which has been connecting two parts of the hotel Mövenpick in Smíchov since 1996. The cable car for 12 persons is inclining during the ride, so that its floor stays horizontal. This cableway is for free and offers a view of a part of Smíchov and of the villa of Karel Gott in Bertramka.
