a popular tourist destination, Prague is well connected to European
countries. There are direct flights to Prague International Airport
(PRG) from most capitals in Europe and from some overseas countries
like U.S.A. and Canada. The national airlines are Czech
Airlines (CSA) which are a member of SkyTeam. Many low-fare
airlines have flights to Prague, e.g. SmartWings
operate from Prague.
to get to the hotel from the airport by public transit?
you have to buy a single ride public transport ticket which costs
20CZK, either at a newsstand inside the terminal or from a ticket
machine at the bus stop, which is located in front of the terminal.
To buy tickets from the machine you will need coins. The ticket
is valid for 90 minutes on weekends and off peak on weekdays (only
60 minutes peak hours on weekdays) which should be enough even
for the most distant hotels.
you have the ticket board bus No.119 (its schedule is posted at
the bus stop), validate the ticket (time stamp) and enjoy the
ride. Go all the way to its last stop, which is "Dejvická"
(about 20 minutes ride). From "Dejvická" use
bus no. 149 or 217 to stop "Malovanka" which is close
to Orea Hotel Pyramida (see also information about the workshop
trains are usually going to Holešovice station (Nádraží
Holešovice) or to Main Station (Hlavní nádraží) which are both well
integrated in the public transport system. There are Metro (underground/subway)
stops directly accessible from the lobby of train stations (Metro
red line C). How to get from Metro to the hotel, see information
about the workshop venue.
