"Prague! It has a sip taste of wine. I can repeat this name a hundred times too, bundled up by the wind, sweet rather than the breath of the beloved ". (Jaroslav Seifert).

Magical, fascinating, suggestive, mysterious .... difficult to leave room for imagination when we talk about Prague. A truly wonderful city. Not by chance, it has always been an inspiration for poets, artists and filmmakers.

Its wonderful historical center, world heritage of humanity. Its alleys, and its bridges. The truly unique views. A city to live slowly. During the day and, above all, at night, when the first lights of the evening sprout and the magic envelops the whole city. The beautiful Pont Carlo. Moldova. Nerudova and Mala Strana. The castle. Magical and evocative places, but at the same time, full of history. Try to make a jump, for example, to the Jewish cemetery.

This and more awaits you in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.



Prague-Ruzyně, Also known as Letiště Václava Havla Praha, is the international airport that serves the Czech capital. Named after the last President of Czechoslovakia and first of the Czech Republic, it is located about 10 kilometers west of the city center. It is the main airport of the whole Czech Republic, as well as one of the most important in Central and Eastern Europe.

The airport has four terminals; the first two, located in the North, are used for flights to the main destinations. The 3 and 4 terminals, in the North, are used instead for VIP, private and charter flights.

The bus is the only public transport that allows you to reach the city center. The possible solutions are the 100 bus, the 119 and the Airport Express.

Il bus 119 it is the recommended means. It is running, every day, from 04: 45 to 23: 40 approximately, and you take it outside the Airport Arrivals Terminal. The bus goes to the metro station Dejvická; from here, with the same ticket, you can continue to your destination by subway. The journey takes about twenty minutes and the ticket costs 32CKZ (about 1,20 €).

Alternatively, there is the 100 bus, which leads, in 16 minutes, to the stop Zlicín, end of the line B line; from here, then, it will be possible to reach your destination by metro.

Praha hlavní is the Prague Central Railway Station, housed in a building of the early '900. The station is connected to the Prague Metro Line C and to major European destinations such as Berlin, Budapest, Dresden, Munich, Nuremberg, Paris or Vienna.
