If you’d like to travel in time and discover the old part of Prague, you may hop on Prague’s historical tram (line n°91) that goes from Výstaviště Holešovice to Vozovna Střešovice in 38 minutes.
You don’t have to go all the way from the first stop to the last, and will be able to hop on at your nearest stop, and hop off at any time. Still, you’ll note that these trams only run on week-ends and bank holidays, from 1pm to 5pm, with one departure per hour. You can check the timetable and stops on DPP’s official website.
During your tram ride, you’ll have the opportunity to pass by Republic’s square (Náměstí Republiky), Wenceslas square (Václavské náměstí), the National theatre (Národní divadlo), Národni avenue and Prague castle (Pražský hrad). Tickets, that you can buy on the tram, cost 35 CZK per adult (approx. 1.4 €) and 20 CZK (approx. 0.8 €) for children up to 15 years of age, handicapped people and seniors (older than 70).
If you’re planning a special event, a birthday, a trip with friends or a corporate event, you may also privatize the whole tram, and rent it on an hourly basis. Prices start at 3,800 CZK an hour (for a 24 people group) and you can also book a jazz band to entertain your guests. For more information, have a look at Prague historical tram rental page.
Getting around Prague is very easy thanks to Prague’s excellent transport system. There are many trams, bus and metros that take you all around the city.
Prague public transport, an easy way to get around the city
The network is very dense, and it’s very quick to get from one point to another. When you’re in Prague for a few days, it’s always nice to catch the tram. First they’ve been in Prague for long and it’s a great way to get around the city and enjoy sightseeing.
You can already use the public transport network when you arrive at the airport. It’ll take you all the way to the centre in a bit more than 30 minutes. First you catch the 119 bus that takes you to Dejvicka metro & tram stop. And from there you pick the tram or metro that will take you to your accommodation. It is convenient and easy to get around.

As in any city, the best way to enjoy the city centre is simply walking around. In fact the city centre is not that big and you can enjoy long walks from Prague castle to the old town square, passing by Mala Strana and Charles Bridge. It is a very enjoyable walk and you won’t get lost… you just have to follow the flow of people!
Still if you’re short on time, or don’t feel like walking too much, Prague public transports are very good and quite cheap, and taxis are not expensive either. Should you get a taxi for a short inner city ride, you’ll probably end up paying something around 5 euros.
