Overview by

Organizing Your Trip

Means of Transport Recommended in Town

There are many taxi operators in czech cities. But Prague's taxis belong to the most expensive taxi within european capital cities. And foreigners may pay much more than the normal price, if they don't take care. For these reasons, it is better to take a public transport (bus, subway, tram, rail etc). The subway in Prague (the only one in the Czech republic) operates more than 30 years and is still expanding.

Traveling By Yourself

Can be useful to travel in the country. The network of highways is growing each year, joining the biggest cities. Signalization is quite good.
But you should take care. Czech drivers do not care about traffic rules; they do not respect speed limits although they may obtain the significant penalties. In the biggest cities traffic jams occur regularly in the morning and in the late afternoon; in Prague it is during the whole day.
