Transportation in the Czech Republic

To search travel options for various types of public transportation in the Czech Republic, you may use the IDOS website.


Road network

The network of roads is the most popular type of transportation in the Czech Republic. Its development depends mainly on the construction of motorways. The core road of the system should be the D1 motorway. When finished, it should connect Prague, Brno, Ostrava, and the Czech-Poland border.


The maximum speed limit on motorways is 130 km/hour, and a motorway fee applies to the use of motorways. If you would like to travel by motorway in the Czech Republic, you must have a motorway sticker on your front windscreen.


Motorway stickers are available at filling stations and Czech post office branches.


Railways

The Czech Republic has one of the densest railway networks in Europe. In addition, thanks to its location in the middle of Europe, it is a crossroads through which many international connections pass (EuroCity, InterCity, SuperCity).


The main railway junction is the Main Station in Prague.


Bus services

The bus system in the Czech Republic is the most important type of public transportation in terms of the scope of the network. Regular public bus transportation complements the railway network, connects to it, and covers most municipalities. All large towns and many smaller towns have their own network or an urban bus service. In the largest cities, bus lines have a complementary role to the main urban rail transport system. In long-distance and international transportation, buses are an important and relatively successful competitor to the railways.


Air travel

The Czech Republic’s largest airport – Václav Havel Airport – is located in Prague-Ruzyne. Due to the small size of the country, it is used mainly for international air travel. Terminal North 2 is used for flights to Schengen countries, and Terminal North 1 is used for flights to other countries. You can find more information on Václav Havel Airport here.


International air travel is also possible at the following airports: Brno Airport, Ostrava Airport, Karlovy Vary Airport, and Pardubice Airport.
