How to get to Hradcany Castle District

Prague is served by Vaclav Havel International Airport, which offers frequent flights from most European capitals and further afield. A regular bus shuttle delivers passengers to the nearest metro station for onward connections to the city center. Alternatively, hop in a cab and you’ll reach your Hradcany hotel with speed and comfort.
