How to get around the Czech Republic
The Czech Republic has a famously reliable transportation system. Public transport throughout all major cities is clean and efficient. And the country hosts one of the world’s most comprehensive rail networks, making travel between towns and cities very easy.
Public transport in Czech Rep.
Prague is the only city in the Czech Republic with an underground train system — a network that exists in conjunction with the city’s tram and bus services. Whilst Brno — another major location — doesn’t have its own metro, like Prague, it does have an equally dependable tram system. Other major cities like Olomouc and Plzen also have great transit infrastructure.
Trains in the Czech Republic
As said, for intercity travel, the Czech Republic’s train services are highly recommended. Not only is the network extensive, but tourists can enjoy discounted tickets when traveling in groups. Advanced bookings are recommended on popular routes.
Cycling in Czech Rep.
Cycling is also a popular form of local transport. Most major Czech cities have plenty of bike rental businesses.

How to get from the airport to the main cities in the Czech Republic
The Czech Republic’s main airport is Václav Havel Airport Prague (PRG). Those looking to travel from the airport to the city should use the Aeroport Express bus service that runs to Prague’s main train station.
The Czech Republic’s second largest airport operates in Brno – Brno–Tuřany Airport (BRQ). As with Prague, the best mode of transport from the airport is the bus. The bus E76 goes to the city center.
If you find yourselves arriving in the Czech Republic late at night, you can always rely on car-sharing services like Uber and Bolt.
