Welcome to Prague!


Located in the heart of Europe, the city of Prague is an open-air museum on its own you will love strolling through. The city is a kaleidoscope of architectural styles and its incredible historical center, which is part of the Unesco World Heritage collection, will feel like a travel to the past centuries. The capital of the Czech Republic also has numerous green havens that will make you forget you are even in a city.

Transportation Prague benefits from an incredible network of undergrounds and trams running frequently and through the night. A useful way to get around the city is to download the official transportation app where you can plan trips and buy tickets PID Litacka. Tickets within Prague are constrained by time (check here for fares). You can also buy tickets at metro stations and on some of the trams (only with contactless cards for tram).

Tourist Information Check the official Prague Tourism website for further information.
