Getting From Prague Airport to the City Center

Prague Airport

The Vaclav Havel Prague airport is located 17km (11 miles) northwest from the city centre. It is the main international airport for the Czech Republic and the only airport serving Prague.

There are 2 main terminals. Terminal 1 is where international non-Schengen flights arrive. Terminal 2 is where international Schengen-zone member flights arrive. So if you’re flying from Europe, you’re likely to arrive at Terminal 2. Passengers from North America will be arriving at Terminal 1.

There are several ways to get from Prague Airport to the city centre, which we’ve set out in detail below.

The Prague City Card

Before proceeding, a huge travel tip from us: consider buying the Prague Card. Prague has so many excellent sights to take in, it can be quite overwhelming. We highly recommend preordering your Prague Card online which includes free entry to most museums, attractions like Prague Castle, the Zoo and even a free riverboat cruise on the Vlatava. Each order also comes with a guidebook to Prague with detailed maps.

Note that the Prague no longer includes public transport.

You can purchase the Prague Card for 2 days for €58, 3 days for €68 or 4 days for €78. You can simply order it online then collect it at either Prague Airport or from the Prague City Tourism Info Centre located in the heart of the city.

Prague Gay Guide - The Nomadic Boys

Prague is one of Europe’s top gay travel destinations and in our opinion, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Prague is magical, with its striking gothic architecture, magnificent medieval monuments, like something from a fairy tale. It’s no wonder that it’s one of the most visited cities in the world.

We loved strolling through the labyrinth of narrow cobblestone streets that make up the UNESCO listed Old Town and then experiencing the thrilling gay nightlife of Prague in the evening.

Our Prague Gay Guide

Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic, a former Soviet country in Central Europe, now part of the EU. The country is so rich with culture that you can never get bored exploring it. To give you a brief idea, its history date back to the 9th century when it used to be called ‘The Duchy of Bohemia’ under the Great Moravian Empire. It was around this time that Prague Castle was built, one of Prague’s most famous tourist sites. In addition, most of the beautiful and picturesque medieval buildings of the Old Town, like “Charles Bridge” were subsequently built in the 1300s by the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles IV. There’s a lot to see here, which we’ve summarised below, but make sure you also give yourself ample time to check out the dynamic gay nightlife of Prague.

Sedlec Ossuary: The Church of 40,000 Bones – Keep Calm and Wander

Sedlec Ossuary - Keep Calm and Wander

I’m gonna bring you with me to Sedlec Ossuary, a church with 40,000 human bones inside! It’s chilling, eh? Don’t worry – there’s nothing to be scared of. Hopefully, after seeing all these, you’d still be able to sleep well, without nightmares. Guess what; I was fine. I was able to sleep without monsters and ghosts in my dreams.

I’ve got to be honest though – I found it weird the moment I stepped inside. I was fascinated and overwhelmed by all the skulls and bones surrounding me like they’re trying to petrify me. I had goosebumps the entire time I was there, but I was not in a hurry to get out of that holy place; in fact, I was the last person in our tour group who went back to our bus.

How to get to Sedlec Ossuary. It’s an hour drive by car from Prague – and the best way to get there is by joining a half day tour to Kutna Hora. Every hotel and hostel in Prague advertise this tour, and they can also book this for you. Now, you might be wondering why on earth Sedlec Ossuary is decorated with 40,000 bones! It actually has a fascinating story.
