Life in Prague.

A renter`s guide.


Part 1 - Prague public transport.


Old Prague tram.One of many good things that you can experience when living in Prague is its public transport, which hasn`t only a long tradition, but is also one of the top ones in Europe (4th place after Munich, Helsinki and Vienna). It is inexpensive (prepaid monthly pass around 25 Euros / month), fast, reliable and secure.

Therefore there is no need to rely too much on a car when travelling in Prague.

The backbone is the metro (the underground), that runs 5:00 - 24:00.
It's ideal for travelling to work. Avoid the traffic jams, stress and problems in finding parking space, which is in Prague, as well as all over the world in large cities, often quite difficult. Therefore, it is advisable to look for housing near metro stations. Public transport is really fast and reliable, so it is better to look for housing by location, that you like , than by place of work. For example, from the subway station Chodov where the office center The Park is (DHL, IBM, Honeywell, Sony, Dell or Accenture) is, it is only 13 min to the IP Pavlova station, which is basically in the centre of the city.

Metro has 3 lines. Green (A), Yellow (B), Red (C) and you can of course change from one to another. These transfer stations are popular places of residence. See the metro plan here.

Furthermore, you can use trams, buses, funicular and suburban trains. In the morning, when the metro is not running it is possible to use a wide and reliable network of night buses and trams.

The best way how to find a connection is to open a localy used map on the internet, and by clicking on an Metro icon the online Prague Integrated Transport timetable opens.

An alternative for trips to work is the bicycle. However, Prague hasn`t very developed network of cycle paths - certainly it isn`t second Amsterdam. You can only take a bike with you to the subway and funicular, and nowadays also to the tram.

Lately, people have also started using folding bicycles that you can travel with for free in suburban trains and buses.
The Interactive map of Prague cycling paths can be found here.
