From Prague to Dresten and Karlovy Vary (budget ways)

by Ishtvan

Dear friends,

I hope to be in Prague in October.
I checked D-Bahn Site, but the prices seem quite expensive for me.

Please give me hints about cheap ways for the following 2 routes:
1) Prague-Dresden-Prague
2) Prague-Karlovy Vary-Prague

I am looking forward to hear from you.

Thank you.

Best regards

1) to Dresden and back it is worth considering either CD eTicket or SONE+DB
2) Purchase return ticket, it will give you some discount

1. Dresden
19 EUR one way in CD eshop.
https://eshop.cd.cz/
Be aware that these tickets are available only trough Internet and valid just for the date/train which is written on the ticket. No changes no refunds. On sale 60 to 3 days before departure. Read carefully conditions - return ticket must be also stamped on board of the train when going Prague-Dresden!

2. Karlovy Vary
Much better and flexible is bus connection. Also because it is very competetive route prices are low. Buy your ticket here (140 CZK / 5.5 EUR one way):

Go to the Florenc bus station in Praha and buy a ticket to wherever you want to go. Leave the German web sites alone.

Karlovy Vary:
Best (and only) way by public transport is by bus. Buy ticket at the Florenc bus station just before you board (I think also from the driver as you get on). Excellent first-class coach and the trip takes about 2 hours each way. Going back, buy your ticket at the KV bus station just before you board. BTW, the bus tickets are for specific buses. You can't get on an X hour bus with a Y hour ticket (at least theoretically - never tested it). Please note that the KV bus station is not in the centre of town and you have to walk about 500-600 m to the main street.

Travel Tips for Prague

Walking through Prague

by Luchonda

Visiting Prague is putting your walking boots on - looking at nice painted facades of historical buildings and churches (98 of them) - is also getting a nice place at a local restaurant on the old market square - have a fresh drink and nice meal - enjoying and looking to history ! Prague is a clean city - not cheap to stay - but so historical.

Bound to the City

by mrclay2000

For a vast panorama of medieval marching against the modern, few cities in Europe rise above Prague. For medievalism, no capital city has it better than here. In Prague the New Town and the Old Town are delimited by three avenues, but elements of the new are blended happily into the old. Other cities have better riverside walks. Other cities have more beautiful churches and squares. Others have better food and better variety of activities. Yet Prague is the only European capital where the seat of government still sits in its castle with its myriad adjuncts and its own ambience, and looks down in a physical sense to the impressive stylings in the city below.

Warm wine during winter

by extrajoce

In Central Europe, warm wine is traditional and it is a pleasure to be able to buy some in central town when cold hits Prague hard (trust me, it does). The clove spice is revitalising, but, like all things, don't overdo it!

The hall of metrostation Andel

by jeoren

In the hall of metrostation Andel you'll find a memorial of the building of the metrosystem in Prague. As you can see on the picture, Russians helped Prague with building the system. Down on the platform you can see several other pictures on the wall which remind of the Russians.

Drink a line.

by Gottsie

I'd recommend this to anyone who would like to see Prague in all shapes and sizes. Pick a metro line, get a day metro pass, start at one end and work your way to the other.

I decided to have a drink at each stop, because everyone says that the city’s soul is in it pubs. They were right. I visited a down home pub in the outskirts where only working class men drink to a high priced bar in the centre where it was spot the Czech!
