When you arrive at Prague airport, find the city transport kiosk/office and get yourself a multi-day travel ticket.
Get the bus to the metro, any door as you're not paying the driver, get your ticket stamped once in one of the machines to validate it (time stamp to start your 72 hours or whatever), then keep it safe and use any bus/tram/metro in the city during your stay.
And if you don't know already, pick-pockets are everywhere ....

I used to travel to Prague from Bristol, Birmingham, and of course the direct Glasgow route.
You could just check the flight prices with kiwi.com and find your own place to stay

came on to post about the 72 hour travel card, but mcek beat me to it.

also, uber is available out there too if you've got a lot of luggage and should cost around half of what pre-booked transfers are (£10-15 for uber to/from the airport rather than £20-30 for transfers)
It is stunning

Great info, thanks
Spend your time away from old town, go across the bridge and head to the castle area. The food gets better the further away you are from old town basically.

And you know if it is a tourist spot if the beer is more than 50Kc, which is the going rate in normal bars. If you go properly off the track it will be as low as 38Kc but as high as 100Kc in tourist spots.

Never taken a taxi, I'll stick to a £1.30 single bus/metro journey. Just take a single bag, but mind that there are some flights of stairs at some metro stations, not all escalators.
Yep, lovely place to visit, recommended

Yep totally this. A very useful travel card for unlimited 3-day travel on public transport.
Prague is Beautiful City. There is more than enough to do over a long weekend.

Its easy to get around and well catered for by public transport. Don't get ripped off by taking a taxi. There will be a bus to take you wherever very close to the taxi rank and there are night buses.

They even have a metro that runs to midnight and starts early morning.

As with most cities with lots of tourists there will be pickpockets. Otherwise it is a safe city.

Use AAA taxi app, it's like Prague's equivalent of uber
Just come back from Prague. Worth looking at Airbnb if there are a few of you. Only cost me £52 a night for a 2 bed flat 20 mins from the centre and flights were about £30 per person return (I was very lucky with the flights!). And as has already been said transport is very cheap, about 90p for a 30 min ticket and £1.20 for a 90 minute ticket.

Well lets say its not the usual robbery, in some cases they will inflate the bill to hundreds of pounds then force you to pay other times if you are drunk enough they will trick you to think that you are paying in krowns while you are paying in pounds loads of doggy stuff to rip you off.

Why not take them, It's not the same but better in some ways. Take loads of pictures, it's shocking how quickly time passes and they'll love the photographs.
I’m booking Christmas markets ! Can’t wait
Had anybody used gogroopie before or tour centre?
A few tips from me, frequent traveler who visits Prague pretty often :
- On the airport don't use the "Moneta" ATMs - it's one of the tourist traps, will charge You a 100 crowns and 5% for every transaction (I've been charged for 195 crowns when taking out 1000 crowns last time). Best to take out Your crowns from Ceska Sporitelna or Euronet using Revolut card or Monzo/Starling/N26. Wherever You can - pay with Revolut, after exchanging Pounds for Crowns before the trip, during the week (during weekends Revolut has slightly less favorable rates).
- Beware of other tourist traps - taxi's, currency exchanges etc
- Worth checking out Czech equivalent of Groupon called Slevomat.cz for deals on food and excursions
- Worth going for a one day trip (or even two days) to Kutna Hora, just outside Prague (less than one hour by train) - beautiful town which is on the UNESCO heritage list, has no tourist traps, way less tourists, cheaper food and beer, great wine grown there as well.
- worth checking out Prague Honest Guide on YouTube for genuinely good tips
- Jazz clubs are a must see for music lovers, Jazz Republic being the most affordable one - with free entry after 22:00, AghaRTA - best rated on TripAdvisor, Reduta - most famous and fancy. U Maleho Glena and Ungelt are also good, Jazz Boat has also good reviews, though it's a bit over priced in my opinion. There are also some restaurants with live jazz music like "U Budovce". Apart from the jazz city is famous for the classical music concerts.
- worth to have a Student card, which I believe most people here have anyway - most museums have a 30-40% discount for students.
My advice:
- use the phone app for bus tickets, its much easier (cant remember what its called)
- get a revolut card for spending, works out cheaper than dealing with cash
- watch 'Anthropoid' or 'Operation Daybreak', its an incredible story, then visit the chapel museum (free) and catch a cheap bus out to Lidice (read about it on Wikipedia). Its the most haunting and emotive place Ive ever visited in my life.

Why do all these deals not reveal flight times until you've paid

Not so great if you arrive at 11pm on day 1 and your flight home departs at 8am on day 3

Is it this one? Never used it myself.
mobilnipenezenka.cz/MAT…=en

dpp.cz/en/…se/

reviews on play store don't look so good.

You can send an sms to get a basic ticket as a reply text, that should still work with dumb phones.


smsjizdenka.cz/MAT….do

edit: evenbetter, when you get to Prague airport, send DPT30 as an sms to 90206, as shown in the tariff link above.
This will charge you a text and 310 CZKr for a 72 hour mobile ticket. No queues at the travel desk.

How would the (two sharing) thing work for a single person travelling? Do I need to buy two tickets or something? How do I choose the flight dates and times?

The Taxi in Prague Airport fares are different, the drivers are tried to rip you off. (Go to same place, but they charge whatever they wanted, you have to confirm the fares before you get in the taxi). If you haven’t been Prague before, the Taxi Driver will charge you £5 - £10 more than usual fares. They are crafty, be careful!!

Shouldn't you be on some porn site rather than a community site trying to help people.
If Im getting a taxi in Prague, it had better be FAKEtaxi, preferably with LadyBug driving.
