About Prague

Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. Golden Prague - the magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers and church domes is the home to many world-famous cultural attractions (e.g. Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square and Petrin Tower) whose image has been mirrored in the surface of the Vltava river for more than ten centuries. Prague is also a modern European metropolis full of energy, music, and art.

Prague is served by Vaclav Havel Airport (formerly Prague Ruzyne International Airport), the biggest airport in the Czech Republic and one of the busiest in Europe. International trains are usually going to Holesovice station (Nadrazi Holesovice) or to Main Station (Hlavni nadrazi) which are both well integrated in the public transport system. There are Metro (underground/subway) stops directly accessible from the lobby of train stations (Metro red line C).
