Places of Interest –
Prague City Pass Details for Sightseeing –
Prague has city pass which covers most of the sightseeing and discount benefits of many other places . The city pass does covers Airport transfer discount offers as well. For those who wanted to spend more 4 to 5 days to explore Prague completely and enjoy all the places, City pass will be beneficial for you . Even if you spend more than 3 to 4 days, but just wanted to relax, chill and occasional sightseeing, I would not recommend this option for you .
Note : For those who are going for a day visit or 2 day trip, please think before you buy this option as it may not sound economical from my perspective . I visited Prague for 2 day trip and I didn’t buy the Citypass .
If you visit Prague in Summer, for sure, the city pass will serve its purpose if you spend more than 4 to 5 days.
The city pass does saves time, as you need not needed to wait in a Queue on the place you visit as it will let you go on the run with the mobile QR code or the digital card which you can buy from stores in Prague.

Prague City Transport –
Prague city is well connected by Bus, Tram and Metro.
There is a App which you can install it in IPhone and Android where you can buy multiple day travel passes which will allow to travel comfortably in Bus, Tram and Metro . I would recommend the travelers to buy the tickets where there are more chances , you will be spot checked by the officers in the Tram and Metro station for tickets. So please be aware of the checks and buy your tickets without fail. If you don’t have tickets, there will be a fine of 800 CZK approx . If you don’t want to buy it in the app , there are ticket booths available at stations, where you can purchase the tickets, but for one time purpose, it might sound expensive, if you buy it for your complete travel days, it will be really cheaper option for you .
