The Castle district is where you'll find Prague's most famous attraction - The Prague Castle. It's one of the largest medieval castles in Europe and is used as the official residence for the country's president. Other attractions in the area are St. Vitus Cathedral (climb to the top of the bell tower for beautiful views of the city) and the Royal Garden. It’s a popular district for history lovers who buy return flights to Prague.
Next to the Castle District is Lesser Town. Petrin Hill is a beautiful park to wander through and looks over the city centre. There's also plenty of bars and pubs in the area.
Old Town is Prague's most famous neighbourhood and is where most people who buy flights to Prague end up staying. It's where you'll find UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Old Town Square and some of the finest examples of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture in Europe. Besides the historical sites, the area is also known for its excellent nightlife, making it a popular choice among backpackers buying cheap flights to Prague.
New Town was established in the 14th century. Its streets are home to Prague's newer architectural wonders like the Dancing House designed by Frank Gehry. The neighbourhood is also another popular nightlife spot and is a great choice for young travellers buying flights to Prague. You'll find plenty of bars, casinos, and clubs around Wenceslas Square.
Public Transport and How to Get Around
You don't need a huge budget for transportation while in Prague. The city's historic districts are compact, making it easy to explore on foot to your heart's content. However, if you get tired or you're in a rush, the city has an extensive public transportation system.
Prague's metro has three lines that run from 5am to midnight every day. Most travellers buying cheap flights to Prague will only use the green line as it goes past most of the city's top attractions. Tickets cost 32 CZK ($1.96 AUD) for a single trip. You can use it for 90 minutes of travel on the city's network of buses, trams, and subways. There are also 24-hour and three-day passes available.
The tram service runs across the city. The most popular line for tourists buying flights to Prague is No.22 and 23. These two lines go past the Prague Castle and National Theatre. The service runs from 4:30am to midnight, and you can use your metro ticket for the tram.
For budget travellers buying flights to Prague, the bus is the cheapest way to get from Vaclav Havel Airport Prague (PRG) into the city. You can take bus No.119 straight from the airport and then transfer to the green metro line to get to your accommodation. There is also an airport express bus. You can buy tickets once your flights to Prague land directly from the bus driver.
It's not a good idea to rent a car while in Prague. Parking is expensive and hard to find. However, if you're planning a few day trips from the city, you can book a vehicle through Webjet when you buy your tickets to Prague or at Vaclav Havel Airport Prague (PRG) when you arrive. Don't forget your international driving permit!
The quickest way to get around Prague is with a taxi. You can either hail a metered taxi (look out for cabs with a yellow roof and the driver's name, license number, and rates on the front doors) or you can use a ride-sharing service like Uber. As soon as your flights to Prague land, you can get a taxi ride to your hotel for a flat rate of 590 CZK ($36 AUD).
The Best Time to Visit
For budget travellers buying flights to Prague, the best time to visit the city is in spring and the beginning of autumn. You'll miss the summer crowds and increase your chances of landing excellent deals on accommodation and airfare to Prague. The weather is mild, but you'll still need to pack a few warm layers. While these two seasons aren't that busy, you'll need to book your hotels at least two weeks in advance if you want to stay in the city centre.
June to August is summer in Prague and one of the best times to visit if you don't mind the crowds. There's plenty of festivals to attend, and the weather is perfect for sightseeing. However, prices for return flights to Prague will be more expensive than usual, and the top hotels book up quickly.
If you can handle the chilly temperatures, winter is a magical time of year to visit Prague. You'll be around for the city's famous Christmas markets, and you can pick up cheap flights to Prague and discounted accommodation.
