Information about Prague
Prague is one of the oldest political, economic and cultural centres of Central Europe. It is the capital as well as the largest city in the Czech Republic with more than 1,270,000 inhabitants. Importance of Prague is reflected in the level of its architecture and living art, quality of life, degree of development of learning, and its cultural significance and reach.
It is one of the world’s most beautiful and monumental cities. It is known as the city of a hundred spires because of its profusion of grand, beautifully-preserved historical monuments from practically every period in history. Those spires are best admired from the Prague Castle, the dominant of Prague and the most significant Czech monument, as well as from the bridges that cross the Vltava River meandering through the city…
Prague is a display of all artistic styles and movements. In 1992 the historical core of the city covering 866 hectares was listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register.

Prague Public Transport
Prague offers an excellent public transport system with its underground and numerous bus and tram lines. The metro is the quickest way to travel long distances across the city. It has three lines: A (green), B (yellow) and C (red). It closes down for the night shortly after midnight and reopens after 4 a. m. Trams and buses connect the metro system to outlying areas, and are also a handy way to make short journeys in the city centre. The most efficient form of night transport is the network of night trams that runs from about midnight until the metro reopens. Night trams run very precisely in 30-minute intervals.
Individual tickets are available at most tobacconists and newsstands. There are also ticket vending machines installed in all metro stations and at selected surface transit stops. Single transfer ticket can be also purchased as an SMS ticket via a mobile phone. Single tickets cost CZK 30 and CZK 40. The CZK 30 tickets are valid for 30 minutes and CZK 40 tickets for 90 minutes of unlimited travel. It is possible to change between trams, buses, the metro and trains (in area of Prague) without having to buy a new ticket until the time period runs out. There is also a 24-hour ticket for 120 CZK or a 72-hour ticket for 330 CZK.
