Information for tourists in Prague

Public transport in Prague?

Works well :) We recommend to purchase a 3day ticket or combination of 24hours tickets.
Night buses (0:30 - 4:30) go at least every 30 minutes, on weekends every 20 minutes.

Journey planner: IDOS.cz.

Beer, beer, beer

Czechia is famous for its beer and we’re proud of it. We have one of the best beer (according to us, try it and make your own opinion) and it’s cheap too – cheaper than water. Thanks to these facts we have the highest beer consumption in the world: more than 156 liters of beer per capita each year – old people, newborns and dogs included.

Useful tips & info

  • Money
    Still no eurozone in sight, so be prepared to do some math: 1 EUR is approximately 27 CZK (Kč, korun, Czech crowns). The safest way to get some cash is at an ATM. They are omnipresent.
  • Tips in restaurants
    Apart from 10% from the total you can use another system - when you receive a bill from the waiter, use the easy math, round the number up and tell the waiter how much he should take to keep at least 6 CZK. So for example: when you pay 143 CZK, tell the waiter: “150 CZK is okay”. But when it’s e.g. 148 CZK you should leave 160 CZK.
  • Opening hours
    Most museums are closed on Mondays. Many shops are closed on Sundays outside of the city centre. Restaurants usually serve warm meals until 21:00 (or 22:00). Later you can get some fast food.
  • Smoking
    Since July 2017 there is ban on smoking inside of the restaurants and bars. You can still smoke outside of the place.

Nudist / Naturist Beaches

  • Počernický rybník, unofficial beach, there are no kiosks, so you need to bring everything with you.
    Take train S1 from Masarykovo nádraží to Běchovice. From the train station Praha-Běchovice (from the furthest track from the station building) you need to walk (along the tracks in direction back to the city) approximately 700m (~ 10 min).
    Ticket for public transport (bus, tram, metro) are also valid in a train to the station Běchovice. (except SMS ticket).
