    Again if you don’t feel like walking the whole day or just don't know town well enough yet there is an other solution which could be right for you.

    Honestly we do not know how to call this 'little something' (if you do, please tell us!), therefore we called it 'golf cart'. You will see lots of them in Prague.

    Tour is about $20.00

    HORSE & CARRIAGE RIDES

    Prague

    Located in the Old Town Square of Prague, we saw a queue of Horse and Carriages. I really wish they weren't so expensive as I would love to go around and see the sights from one of these.

    The tour is for 1hour or if you request, it can be longer.
    The Carriage will carry between 1-4 people and the cost is per carriage, so to make it a reasonable price, four people is better!

    PRICE in 2013.....
    2700 Czk or 113 eu or $150 us
    If you want a tour guide, that is an extra 1200 czk

    Another tour I found was for 30mins and you saw
    Old Town Square which is the starting place, Male namesti, St. Mary's Square, Charles Street, Maiselova Street, Jewish Cemetery, Parizska Street
    Cost was 27 eu PER PERSON

    USE THE METRO

    Ticket machine

    We found the Prague Metro very simple to use, fast, clean, efficient!

    There are only 3 metro lines in Prague and each are coloured.
    Line A is GREEN, Line B is YELLOW and Line C is RED.
    All three lines meet in the city city centre at three transition stations.

    We bought our ticket from a yellow Ticket vending machine, just pressed the button for English. It was very easy to operate.

    BE AWARE -THE MACHINE'S TAKE COIN'S ONLY

    What I liked about the ticket's, was being able to use them on any type of Prague public transportation for the duration of the period for which the ticket is valid. Once we had our tickets, then we validated them before reaching the platform and getting on the Train. Make sure you do this as Inspector's work undercover, NOT in uniform.
    We didn't have to worry if we missed a train, or if we gave one a miss because it looked full, the next Train would be along in 2-3mins in rush hours - that is what I call a good service!
    The metro service operates between 5 am and midnight every day.
    What ticket we bought depended on what we had planned for the day. We did buy a 90min ticket, and the 24 hour pass - excellent value!

    PRICES IN 2013...
    Single ticket. ...30-minutes: 24 CzK (Reduced 12 CzK)
    Single ticket ....90-minutes: 32 CzK (Reduced 16 CzK)
    1 day: 110 Czk
    3 days: 310 CzK
    Children under 6years - FREE
