From the Airport to the City Centre
Vaclav Havel Airport, Ruzyne is the International Airport for Prague and is about 20km north of the city. The journey to the city centre should take roughly 30-60 minutes, depending on the mode of transport. City and transport maps are available at the airport's Tourist Information Centre. The quickest way of making the journey is by taxi, but these can vary hugely in price although the yellow AAA taxis are quite reliable and reasonable.
Taxis from the airport to the school cost between 250 – 400 Czk depending on luggage (and driver!)
From the Airport to the city/school by public transport
When you exit customs, you should see the tourist desk offering information on public transport to the city and you can buy all your public transport tickets there. You can also buy public transport tickets at your hotel, Metro stations or at newsagent kiosks around the city. You cannot buy them on the bus/metro/tram.
The cheapest route from the airport is to catch the 119 bus (outside the airport terminal) to NádraÅ¾í Veleslavín Metro station, from where you can speed into the city centre (using Green line A.)
A 90-minute ticket should be sufficient for this journey (32 CZK).
Other options for public transport journeys are a 30-minute ticket (24 CZK) a 24-hour ticket (110 CZK) or a 3-day ticket (310 CZK). See http://www.myczechrepublic.com/prague/tickets_fares.html
Buy your transport ticket (valid for subways and buses) from the yellow ticket vending machines.
**Please make sure you stamp your ticket in the machine at the start of your first journey**
If you don’t want to take a taxi, a fairly easy journey is to take the airport bus to the Dejvicka subway station (as above) and then change buses to take either the 161, 254 or 312 buses to the International School or the Metro into the city centre.
We suggest avoiding the 116 bus for a journey to ISP, as this takes a circuitous route to the school.
You cannot buy tickets on the bus so please buy both your outward and return tickets in advance from the ticket machines/kiosks/hotels. The bus stop for the school is called PRUHONSKY HAJ and shows on the electronic display inside the bus. There will be signs showing where to enter the school.
