Trains to Prague Find train times and tickets

Rising prices have taken the edge off Prague’s overheated tourist scene. There was a time when anyone and everyone wanted to be seen in Prague, and the city welcomed millions of visitors each year – most of them looking for cheap beer, lashings of homely Czech food and a vibrant club scene. Prague still pulls the crowds, but nowadays visitors are as likely to be tempted to the Czech capital by art, music and history.

Prague is thus a fine destination for a city break, a longer stay or an en-route stop as part of a wider exploration of Europe by train. Three other European capital cities are all just four to five hours away by train. They are Berlin, Bratislava and Vienna. In addition, Dresden is just over two hours distant. Trains leave Prague every two hours to each of these four cities. Prague also has direct daytime train services to a range of other cities, including Budapest (seven hours away) and Munich (six hours). A new direct daytime service to Kraków will be launched at Easter 2017, and run daily daily until late September.

Prague has direct night trains to Kiev, Krakow, Minsk, Moscow, Warsaw and Zurich (although not all of these can be booked on Loco2). Prague lies at the hub of the Czech Republic’s excellent national rail network - trains are sometimes slowish, but there's hardly a town in the country which cannot be reached by direct train from the capital. The main railway station in Prague is hlavní nádrazí (often abbreviation to Praha hl.n). A small number of local and regional trains services leave from Masarykovo rather than Praha hl.n.
