Prague sits at the heart of Europe and is well served by air, road and rail.
If arriving by air from outside the EU’s common border and customs area, the Schengen Zone, you must go through passport control. This includes arrivals from Ireland and the UK. If arriving from a European hub within the Schengen Zone, such as Amsterdam or Frankfurt, you will not pass through passport control in Prague.
If arriving overland by train, bus or car, note that the Czech Republic is surrounded on all sides by EU Schengen Zone-member countries and there are no passport or customs checks on the border.

Central Prague is easily managed on foot (though be sure to wear comfortable shoes). For longer trips, the city has a reliable public-transport system of metros, trams and buses. The system is integrated, meaning that the same tickets are valid on all types of transport, and for transfers between them.
