How to Get from Prague Airport to City Center

Public transport

The most affordable and also quite fast option is T-bus number 59, which recently replaced bus number 119. The T-bus will take you to the green line of the Prague metro, Nádraží Veleslavín station, from where you can get to any part of the city. For example, when you reach Muzeum or Můstek station, you will find yourself in Wenceslas Square. The journey takes approximately 40 minutes and costs CZK 40 (about 1.6 euros).

You can buy tickets at the Prague Public Transport counters or the ticket machines in the arrivals halls of both the first and second terminals. Bank cards are accepted for payment, so you don't have to worry about exchanging money.

The T-bus stops are right in front of the terminals. You just need to leave the arrival hall and cross the road. During the daytime, buses run every 5-10 minutes.

After entering the T-bus, do not forget to immediately stamp the ticket in the yellow validating machine. The timestamp will show the time you started your ride. A ticket, which costs 40 CZK, is valid for 90 minutes. Keep it until the end of the trip. The same ticket is valid on the metro. There is no need to buy a new one at Nadrazi Veleslavin station. Neither should you stamp the old one again.
