Traffic Information

If you are flying in to Vaclav Havel Prague Airport, the city center is just 12 miles east on Route 7 and Evropska. The drive will take you around 37 minutes. Driving via the D0 is 18 miles but will usually cut a few minutes off your journey. This route does have tolls, though. Prague Main Railway Station is just over a mile from the city center via Wilsonova or Italska and the drive should take you around 10 minutes. Driving the 2 miles from Florenc Bus station into the city center will take around 15 minutes, also using Wilsonova or Italska.

Prague is at the center of an extensive central European road network and makes a great base to explore in your rental vehicle. One of the busiest routes is the D1/E50/E65 southeastern highway, which runs to Slovakia and Bratislava. The D5/E50 southwestern highway takes you to Plzen and Germany and the R6/E48 western expressway goes to Cheb. The D8/E55 highway to the north will take you to the major German cities of Berlin, Dresden and Leipzig, while the D11/E67 runs east to Poland. Remember that to use these major highways you need a pass called a vignette. You can buy these at post offices and gas stations and you need to display them inside your windscreen to avoid a police fine. There are many park and ride parking lots dotted around the city close to the major highways. Orange and green parking bays designate on-street parking in the city but avoid the blue resident only bays.

Sixt Sightseeing Tips

Prague has many famous sites including Prague Castle, which towers above the Old Town offering great views of the city. Here you can visit museums and palaces and watch the changing of the guard every hour. The statues of Charles Bridge are another must-see and the many street artists and musicians add to the atmosphere. Visit the Old Town, or Stare Mesto, to see the Tyn Church and Astronomical Clock. Josefov is the Jewish Quarter and has many ancient synagogues along with Franz Kafka's house. Wenceslas Square is at the heart of the New Town (which actually dates from the 14th century) and is the place to go for nightclubs, restaurants and shopping. For a fine example of modern architecture, check out the stunning Prague Dancing House, designed by Frank Gehry and Vlado Milunic. The city has innumerable museums and countless atmospheric bars serving some of the best beer in the world.

The Prague Congress Centre is now rated as one of the best business event venues in the world.

What to Do in Prague in Winter 2020

The winter weather in Prague can be very cold but luckily there are plenty of things to do while staying warm. You can expect high temperatures in the low-to-mid 30s from November to April, but it can be much colder. There are tons of breweries and cafes to take refuge in, but also a lot of cultural things to see and do. Prague Castle is a great place to visit any time of the year and there are numerous buildings on the grounds to explore. If you visit in December or the beginning of January, be sure to check out one of the many festive Christmas markets that pop up in Prague. You can also go skating on the ice rink that opens up in the city’s old town in the winter. If you are looking for a museum to visit, there are many to choose from. Check out the Kafka Museum or the Apple Museum for something quirky. Or go to the National Museum of Prague or Museum Kampa for the history of Prague and modern art, respectively.
