Parking at Prague Airport
Park safely and comfortably
The Václav Havel Airport in Prague (also known as Prague Ruzyne) is located on the northwestern outskirts of Prague in the Prague 6 - Ruzyne district. It is easily accessible from the city centre by public transport, by a special Airport Express bus line from the main railway station, and by long-distance Regiojet buses. Alternatively, of course, by taxi, which is a much more comfortable option. However, did you know that one taxi ride can cost you more than if you use the official Prague Airport parking or other car parks near the airport for parking during your holiday?

Prague airport parking: Is there any free parking?
Among the tips for cheap of or free parking and close to the airport, some streets are often mentioned, such as U Letiště (stop "Na Padesátníku"), U Prioru or Navigátorů, where it is supposedly possible to park for free and the airport is easily accessible by public transport. Beware, even in these streets blue paid parking zones have already been established, primarily for residents. In general, the use of long term on-street parking is always at your own risk, and you should expect that your car may be towed away while you are away.
