Prague metro is very efficient, reliable and easy to use. It will take you throughout the city very quickly. As most visitors confirm, it is very clean and safe.

The Prague Metro network consists of three lines designated by letters and represented by colour:

Green Line A (Nemocnice Motol – Depo Hostivař)
Yellow Line B (Zličín – Černý Most)
Red Line C (Letňany ‑ Háje)

Line A is the most popular with tourists as it serves Prague Castle (Malostranska), The Old Town (Staromestska), Wenceslas Square (Mustek, Muzeum) as well as connecting with bus 119 to/from the airport at Nadrazi Veleslavin. Boutique hotel Seven Days is also on this line – the station Muzeum.

You can transfer between lines at Můstek station (lines A and B), Muzeum station (lines A and C) and Florenc station (lines B and C).

Hours of operation are daily from 5am to 12 midnight. The time interval between train departures is approximately 2-3 minutes during the weekday rush hours and 4-10 minutes during the off-peak.

Just before the doors of the metro train are closed, you’ll hear an announcement that most of the tourists wonder about as it quite long. It goes: “Ukončete prosím výstup a nástup, dveře se zavírají.” It means: “Please, finish getting on and off, the doors are about to close”.
