Prague Money-Saving Tips

Drinking Water

Yes, the tap water is safe to drink in Prague.

Getting Around

Prague’s public transportation is safe and efficient. The metro runs from 5am to midnight; main tram lines operate 24 hours a day. Buy daily or weekly passes from machines located in the subway and in many stores.

Steady Steps

Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and avoid high heels – Prague is paved in cobblestones.

Bug Watch

If you’re traveling outdoors, especially in wooded areas, take care to cover extremities to avoid contact with ticks – the little suckers can carry encephalitis and/or Lyme disease.

Legally Insured

In order to enter the Czech Republic, visitors must provide proof of medical insurance (minimum coverage: $45,000). A health insurance card or an internationally recognized credit card with health insurance included will generally suffice.

Call Ahead

In Prague, in order to avoid being overcharged by dishonest cabbies, it’s best to call ahead for a taxi rather than hail one in the street. Dial this number: 14-014.

Emergency Number

The Czech version of "911" is 112.
