YOU DON’T GET

much more cen­tral than Prague when it comes to Euro­pean city des­ti­na­tions, so it comes as no sur­prise that it has cap­i­talised on its set­ting per­fectly; both from an ini­tially in­ter­na­tional per­spec­tive, and then through­out its in­tra-city trans­port modes too.

Served by the coun­try’s largest air­port, Vá­clav Havel Air­port, this op­tion may be the most ef­fi­cient and quick for the busi­ness trav­eller, but not the only ef­fec­tive en­trance into the coun­try. Once again lev­er­ag­ing its nat­u­ral net­work po­si­tion­ing, the Czech rail­way sys­tem com­fort­ably links Prague to a host of other Euro­pean cities across Ger­many, Aus­tria, Poland, Slo­vakia, Hun­gary, Switzer­land, Croa­tia, Ser­bia and even Rus­sia. Why not take your time, con­duct your busi­ness plan­ning on the train, and op­ti­mise your time in Prague in the mu­se­ums and pubs?

Once in Prague, the city wel­comes you with sat­u­ra­tion al­most be­yond com­pare. Around 130 bus lines, a com­pli­men­tary tram net­work, three fu­nic­u­lars, an in­ter-city metro and - if you re­ally want - a com­pre­hen­sive road net­work en­sures that get­ting around the city is a di­verse ex­pe­ri­ence rather than a crowded chore.

You can even take a ferry if you’re feel­ing par­tic­u­larly ad­ven­tur­ous. And once again, the city strives to outdo it­self as tech­nolo­gies evolve and as con­sumers de­mand height­ened im­me­di­acy.

“From 2017, vis­i­tors can ben­e­fit from the newly in­stalled and con­stantly ex­pand­ing sys­tem of con­tact­less pay­ments for trans­porta­tion tick­ets across Prague’s trams,” the Con­ven­tion Bureau ex­plains. “Prague also plans to launch a new city card for tourists, which could be used both as a trans­porta­tion ticket and as a ticket to se­lected Prague at­trac­tions.

“Prague should also gain a bet­ter con­nec­tiv­ity to the Prague Air­port in the fu­ture. The new rail­way should lead from the city cen­tre right to the air­port, with the ex­pected com­ple­tion of the rail­way planned for 2025.”
