Before you jump to conclusions about transportation in Prague, let me show you what the city of Prague can offer you when you just need a lift. While you wouldn’t think that a city like Prague would have ample transportation, it is a city overflowing with transportation such as the metro, tram, bus, and taxi.

In most U.S. cities, a taxi is the most expensive means of transportation. True even in Prague, the taxi is expensive compered to the other means of public transport, but it is definitely the most effective if you are in a hurry. But be warned not all taxis charge the same! If you travel to the Czech Republic, only use AAA taxis. These taxis are the fairest and most economical way to get around Prague. If you find yourself in a non-AAA taxi, you might just be paying double the regularly charged price.

Prague also has many train stations but the most popular are the Main Station (Hlavní nádraží), Holešovice Station (Nádraží Holešovice), and Smíchov Station (Nádraží Smíchov). You may find it surprising, but trains in Europe are expensive! Depending on where you’re headed to, airline tickets might be a cheaper alternative.
