Transportation in the Czech Republic: Personal experience
From the Main Station (Hlavn&# 237; N ; DRA&# 382;&# 237;) To the city of Beroun, there is a transplant to the local train that will take us to the right place. The distance comes out something like 80 km, travel time, just under 2 hours. Sunning a printout from the info office at the cashier at the station received tickets, it turns out about 180 kroons from the nose. (1 krona = 1.6 rubles).
It should be noted that in the Czech Republic (and in general, it seems to me throughout Europe) with electricians everything is very good, maybe not as often as I would like to go, but apparently because of not a big passenger traffic. Semi-empty Modern Trains, Pretty Short, Vagon Edak 4, But Two-Easy with Pure Sorter, Soft Seats and other nishtyaki type of tables for pivas. In general, ride in the Czech Republic on the train solid pleasure, and even the views outside the window are very picturesque.
Czech Airlines: "thanks" For spoiled rest
I want to share my impressions of the flight on Czech Airlines on the route Moscow-Karlovy Vary-Moscow. It was at the end of September and back in early October 2012. When registering in Moscow, with incredible labor, managed to arrange to put us near his wife, t.To. We were offered 1 place on different rows.
I had to apply all sorts of tricks so that it was for us to removed the last 2 places nearby, reserved for a special case. The most interesting began on arrival in Karlovy Vary.
We are 40 mines. waited our luggage and it did not turn out. Maybe someone disagree with me, but the rest at this stage was already spoiled and there was only one desire to return back, t.To. To rest without things is fully impossible, whoever did not say. Everything is impossible at least for the reason that you just don’t find everything that you need and what is suitable.
Yes, and you need a lot of money on the most needed, not to mention the fact that you will fill everything that lost and it is not clear whether and when will come back! Still, this is no longer a rest, there will always be something to be lacking and there will be nerves. We appealed to Czech Airlines in Karlovy Vary.
They wrote in Czech some paper about the absence of baggage, we left our phone to them. We met a transfer and driver nervous that we were so long. We have been nervous for two reasons. But still with the creak waited for us. On the third day they brought luggage to the hotel, all the edges of the swapped, rummed and scratched!
Customs of the airport of Karlovy Vary: no limit of indignation
With all you undress and feel, especially if you have a metallic plaque on melting or bra. Almost to the pants undress and in the crotch hands are. Humiliation of something else. How to the zeks are.
And then the clearance of hand-made bags and a sharp opening of the bag, the sample of the hand and release into the trash. It was an expensive shampoo in a bank 200 ml., But half used, t.E. liquid in the bank was 100 ml. At the same time, exactly the same volume on the appearance of 150 ml. The bottle is partially used, but the perfume of the lady to throw out opposite me did not become. Apparently from the Shampoo of Czech, you can do explosive, and from the spirgi spirits – no longer succeed.
Water did not allow 2 throat. Pentalgin from headaches, t.To. brought these Czechs to handle. They say it your problems that the head hurts. Buy after the passage of customs. And if there is no money? If there is no money – you are a loser and idiot. And if there is no money for additional. Unit of baggage? In terms of weight, everything passes and you do not think that you have 1 or 2 bags, on weight orientate. If there is no money 70 euros for additional. Unit (but not a transcendency) – we were offered or not to fly or throw away some of the baggage. Class ratio!
How to get to the center of Prague from the airport
Get baggage. Go to the terminal arrival hall 1.From above over the head-laying aircraft . Right ahead – transport doors to transport. On the left and right of the door – cabins of exchange offices, car rental and other.We are interested in the cabin located a little to the right with the inscription Public Transport
Here you can buy tickets for cash and on any bank card. You can say in Russian:" Please two tickets for 32 kroons " Czech and Russian numerals are very similar and you will understand everywhere. Tickets in Prague can be bought around the clock in yellow automata (only for coins), at the cash desks of the metro and newspaper kiosks Relay . Read more about tickets and prices on any Czech site with tickets We pass to the output from the terminal. Moving right, past a taxi parking to a pedestrian crossing for a bus stop.The electronic scoreboard with the schedule of the nearest routes hangs on top.
When landing on a bus, tram, metro – be sure to insert a ticket to the gap of a yellow composter arrow forward and up. Composter stamps on the current time. The ticket is composed only once at the landing site. In the tram and bus – inside the cabin, on the subway – before entering the escalator. One ticket 32 crowns can be reached by half an hour before any point of Prague. Plan the need for tickets in advance. Yellow automata is not on all tram and bus stops and not always you can have enough heavy coins.
About Prague Metro
Metro in Prague has 3 lines and 57 stations.
The first thing that surprises the Prague Metro is free entry. No one is interested in the presence of a ticket. Although the tickets themselves are sold in automata, and in newspaper and tobacco kiosks. There are compact racks – the type of electronic composters that put on the ticket time and date. Controller (I did not see any one for 8 days) it is necessary to present a procked and necessarily not an overdue ticket. There is a category of tickets with which you can go out and enter several times, then transfer the bus or tram. The number of transfers is not limited, limited – one and a half hours – only the time of using such a ticket. Very comfortable system. Despite the fact that the tickets are more expensive than in Moscow, total travel costs are often significantly less. Let’s say a man drove to the subway on the tram, went down, drove a few stops, came out – and got on the bus. In Russia, he will have to work out for 3 tickets. And here he costs one.
Therefore, passing by the rack, I insert a ticket for a second – to fix the entry time. Most people pass by these racks without stopping. They say hares among Prazhan not so much – therefore, they refused controllers and turnstiles. Just local use monthly travel – they do not need to celebrate them.
