What are the advantages of the Prague Card?

Free admission to almost all sights

With the Prague Card you save the entrance fees in many big sights. Many highlights in Prague now cost well over 10 euros each.

For example, almost every tourist wants to see the Golden Lane and St Vitus Cathedral in Prague Castle. The Jewish quarter with its synagogues and the famous cemetery is also part of practically every city trip to Prague. In our opinion, the great Prague Zoo is also worth a visit. It is one of the most beautiful zoos in Europe. With the Prague Card almost 50 sights are free of charge.

Important: There is no long and annoying queuing at the cash desk at the entrance at many places of interest. In a way, the Prague Card makes you a first-class tourist.

2 Hours Bus Tour

There is also a free bus tour through the city centre of Prague (duration 2 hours) with the Prague Card. This tour gives you a great overview of the city and its sights. We recommend to do this bus tour at the beginning of your city trip. After the tour you have a first orientation in the foreign city and know better what you want to see and experience.

What are the disadvantages of the Prague Card?

We actually like the Prague Card very much. The disadvantage, of course, is that it costs money. The card doesn’t pay off for every visitor to Prague. Quite a few tourists pay a few euros more for the Prague Card than the summers of all local transport tickets, entrance fees and so on.

Consideration of advantages and disadvantages

Almost all users of the Prague Card are happy to have bought the Prague Card after their trip. The whole trip costs a lot of money. Whether you save a few euros with the Prague Card or pay on top is not so important:

The big advantage of the Prague Card from our point of view is that you don’t have to buy tickets on the spot, you save a lot of time: without the Prague Card you often have to queue in long queues at the cash desks of the sights. Communication, whether with people or vending machines, is often not easy in a foreign language. It is not uncommon tourists buy wrong tickets or tickets that are too expensive.

The Prague Card is especially worthwhile for tourists who are in Prague for a few days and want to visit the important sights of the “Golden City”.

Where to buy Prague Card?

We recommend buying the Prague Card on the Internet at the well-known Getyorguide website before your trip. It is not always easy to find a reputable sales agency in Prague. In addition, the purchase in Prague costs valuable vacation time. One wants to start immediately after the arrival and not go first to buy the card.

The best ticket for Prague Castle

The queues at Prague Castle are often hours long, including at the security checkpoint. With a ticket without queuing you save time. The following ticket to the castle costs only around 10 euros on the Internet.

Bestseller: Prague boat tour with dinner (buffet)

It is perhaps the most popular tour in Prague. 3 hour boat ride in the evening on the Vltava River with great buffet dinner included. Great modern ship with lots of glass for best view, open top deck for photography, good food and very good reviews from participants. Price under 60 euros per person, window seat only a few euros more. Our recommendation for a cruise on the Vltava River.
