The Prague metro, or subway, is an underground public transportation system with extensive links throughout the city. The metro and the tram system are the best ways to get around Prague by public transport.
The Prague metro has three lines. They are color-coded and lettered. The lines are Green (Line A), Yellow (Line B), and Red (Line C).
Prague metro line A runs from east to west and connects with line B at Mustek and line C at Muzeum.
Prague metro line B runs from east to west and connects with line A at Mustek and line C at Florenc.
Prague metro line C runs from north to south and connects with line A at Muzeum and line B at Florenc.
The metro hours are from 4 or 5am until midnight (1am on Fridays and Saturdays), and the metro is open every day. Trains run less frequently at off-peak times and on weekends (particularly on Sundays).
Buying a ticket for the Prague metro is a straightforward process. You can purchase tickets at any metro station from vending machines or from an attendant at a ticket window.
Prague metro tickets are singles. One type of ticket lasts up to 30 minutes and costs 24 CZK. A more flexible metro ticket lasts for 90 minutes and allows you to travel to an unlimited number of stations. This ticket costs 32 CZK. Discounts are available for children, youths, students, and seniors.
You can also get a 1 day, 3 day, 1 month, 3 month, 5 month, or 1 year Prague metro pass.
In the future there will be a Blue line (Line D) as well, but plans are still underway. A proposed E line for the Prague metro has also been discussed.
