Taxi drivers at Prague Airport are notorious for ripping people off so be very careful if you decide on that mode of transport. The cheapest way is to take bus 119 to Dejvicka Metro station (Final Stop) & then take the metro to Vysehrad . Your hotel is adjacent Vysehrad metro station. This is easier than it sounds & you won't get lost. You can buy the ticket for the whole journey inside airport arrivals for less than £1.00. Have a lovely time, Darren.

hi,
i agree with the bus 119 to dejvicka.

however i guess your hotel is at pankrac metro station, see map:

therefore i would suggest to go from dejvicka by A line of metro to the stop Muzeum (5th stop from dejvicka), then change to line C and continue to the stop Pankrac (4th stop from muzeum). it takes approx 45 minutes.

if you see the link with the map, the metro station you will get off is small green arrow with "m" little northern from your hotel (red nr. "1")

have a nice stay!

Cedaz van line offers a somewhat more expensive but far easier way to get into Prague, with a kiosk right in the baggage claim area. we were the second of three parties to reach our hotel, just over 30 minutes, right to the door.

I did use the CEDAZ van service and found it a good compromise between taxis and buses. They'll bring you right to your hotel and you shouldn't have to wait too much.

Enjoy Prague!

Re: Travel from Airport

We used these people for a direct airport transfer to our hotel and it cost us £28 - it seems to have gone-up (maybe the season) to 48 euros for 1 - 4 people.
BUT - consider this - it was a return journey, door to door and back - and the driver will wait if your flight is delayed. We got a short video to watch in the car and the journey takes (to the centre) about 25 minutes. The driver was friendly, and gave us vouchers for a guided walk (included in price) should we wish to take it the next day.
Whilst is is more expensive than the bus/tram option, we reckon on getting an extra 1/2 day in prague because of the ease with which we travelled to and from the airport.
Just a thought!

I took the 119 bus to Dejvicka Metro station (the final bus stop) and it took less than half an hour at about 9am on a weekday. Also, if you are planning to travel on public transport while in Prague (metro/bus/tram/funicular), you should definitely get one of the passes offering unlimited travel for a specified number of days (there are about 3-4 options). Not only does this save a lot of time, but it is MUCH cheaper. And, if you do decide to buy a pass, it is also valid for the trip from/to the airport, so that you won't have to pay any extra.

Travel Tips for Prague

Supermarkets

by Marpessa

If you are on a budget when you are in Prague, then supermarkets are a great way to shop for cheap food. Especially after I had just been in Austria and Italy, food prices in Prague were extremely cheap. Also there is the novelty of finding items on the supermarket shelves and trying to figure out what they are. Some of the girls I met at my hostel and I all went to a supermarket right above the Metro Karlovo Namesti, and had fun picking out some chocolate bars and other things and just trying and tasting them. But it was nice that things were cheap here, so I could go a little crazy and buy big cartons of fruit juice, chocolate and just some things that I hadn't had in a while.

Hradcany

by bugulma

Hradcany was a fortification when it was built in XIV century. Prague castle is situated there. If to compare to Moscow, then Hradcany is a kind of Kremlin in Prague. The main square is Hradcanske Namesti. From here wonderful views open to your eyes.

Paying for beer only

by anglosaxon

If you intend a visit to a Czech bar then you'll find a slightly different way of paying. It's rare to find anybody standing in a truly Czech bar as many tables are provided for sitting at. When the waiter brings your first beer he will generally not ask for money at that time. If you ask for a second beer, this will start a tab i.e. he will bring the beer and then a piece of paper will appear on the table with pen marks on it. Each line represents one beer. At the end of the evening he counts the lines and then you pay. There's information on Czech menus and barfood here

FebioFest - Prague Film Festival

by mbsimjam

The largest film festival in the country is Febiofest. It happens over a period of about 2-3 weeks, in or around March of each year (when I went, it was actually the end of Feb-mid Mar, but this year it is end of Mar - mid April).

There are many fine films shown at this festival from all over the world, and the best thing about the festival (in my opinion) is that it travels. It makes stops in just about every larger centre in the country, the largest stop-over, of course, in Prague.

If you will be in Prague in early spring, check it out. It is worth it. But get your tickets a few days early, as it is very popular.

Rabbi Low.

by leics

Rabbi Low was the chief rabbi of the Prague ghetto during the reign of Rudolph ll (1576-1612). He is strongly associated with the golem (a creature formed from inanimate matter), which is strange as the story of Rabbi Low and the golem only began to appear in the nineteenth century. You will find t-shirts, books, posters and other tourist ephemera relating to the golem everywhere in Prague.

The story, basically, is that the rabbi created the golem (called Yossel) from the river mud, intending him to be his servant. The golem eventually got out of control, only stopping when Low removed the magic tablet (shem) from its mouth. Various elaborations have been added to the tale over the years, of course.

There is a statue of Rabbi Low on one corner of the Nova Rednice (New Town Hall), sculpted by Saloun (who also created the Hus monument). You can also visit the rabbi's grave in the Old Jewish Cemetery in Josefov (the small plaque is in the left-hand perimeter wall as you walk round).
