My wife and I will be in Prague to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary on May 2nd. We will arrive in Prague 30th April and depart May 4th. It has just come to my attention that May 1st and May 3rd are it public holidays. Will this mean (1)that socialising will be curtailed due to closures or (2)that travel (within city) will be inhibited due to reduced frequency of public transport services because of holidays?
We are booked to stay in Aureus Clavis Hotel, Nerudova(lesser town?) and would appreciate any information or guidance regarding (1) location of this hotel (2)what is nearest metro station to hotel and how far is the walk? Also on our first night (April 30th) we have tickets for Swan Lake Ballet (secret, my wife doesnt know yet) at Prague State Opera House. Can anyone advise me if this is within walking distance of Aureus Clavis Hotel, Nerudova(lesser town?)?
I know I have asked a lot of questions here but I would really appreciate guidance on any ONE or ALL of these depending on the local knowledge of whoever replies. I need the Prague VT bighitters to come to my aid here. I hope I can reciprocate if any of you require information on visiting IRELAND.
Thank you in anticipation.
May 1st is a public holiday, but May 3 is not (May 8 is). Generaly this means that public transport runs according to sundays shedules (metro interval 8 minutes, trams 10-15 minutes), many shops are closed, but big ones usualy are open. I expect that all the tourist services will be working.
Your hotel is located in very historical and prestigeous street (and full of turists all day long), but not realy practical. You will be living very close to the Castle (which is nice when you want see it) but central part (including Old Town Square, theaters, etc. are on the other bank of the river.
To go to the city you have to walk around 400 m down the hill (yes, 400 m up to the hill every day)to the tram stop. Then you can walk further to Charles Bridge, or take 1 tram stop to the metro line A - Malostranska station (convenient to reach the airport). Distance from tram stop to metro is around 700 - 800 m. Depending on the location you want to visit tram might be more convenient than metro.
Walking distance from your hotel to the State Opera house would be around 2,5 km (3 stops by metro A to Muzeum station, then walk around 100 m). DO NOT take taxi standing on the street on any of these locations - you very likely to be ripped off by taxi drivers. If you really want to go to theatre by taxi let hotel reception arrange that - order trough the phone operator prevents drivers from cheating.
