Transportation between Prague Ruzyne Airport and Prague Centre
Prague has only one international airport - Praha Ruzyne Airport - that is located to the north-west of the city, about 17 km from the city centre. The airport has no metro or train connection with the city centre and is only served by buses and taxis.
Two local buses connect the airport to metro stations.
The buses operate between 4.20 and 24.00, approximately every 20 minutes and cost CZK 12. The scheme and time tables of Prague public transport can be viewed at http://www.dp-praha.cz/sch_m_e.htm or http://www.dp-praha.cz, respectively.
There is also a relatively cheap airport bus MINIBUS CEDAZ which will get you to Dejvická metro station (CZK 60) and to Namesti Republiky (CZK 90) in the city centre. These buses run roughly from 5:30 until 21:30 every 30 minutes.
Another option is an airport taxi. A taxi should not cost more than CZK 700.
If you don't want to use public transport or start looking for a taxi once you arrive in Prague you can book a car from abroad and have it waiting for you on your arrival. The cost is comparable to a cost of a taxi and you have an added assurance that the car will be there even if your plane is delayed, at no extra charge.
