O nádraží

There are seven fully covered platforms at Prague Main Railway Station, with two tracks at each platform. All platforms are wide and high so that low-floor trains can be boarded without steps.
Platforms are numbered from 1 to 7. The number can be followed by the letter „S“ for the northern part of the platform or „J“ for the southern part of the platform. Platform 1 is still divided into parts 1, 1a (southern track), and 1b (northern track). Because the platforms are long, up to two trains in a row can be at the platform at the same time. Watch the departure boards carefully!

Three wide, clear underpasses lead up from the platforms to the hall. The exit from the underpass is via stairs, escalators, or elevators. The entire station is wheelchair accessible/barrier-free. There is a connection to the Hlavní nádraží (Main Railway Station) metro in the station hall. Upstairs, above the hall, there is a connection to buses to Václav Havel Prague Airport.

  • The station is fully barrier-free, including the toilets. You can pay by card here. There is also the possibility of taking a shower.
  • During the day, many shops are open at the station offering all sorts of goods, self-service, restaurants, and fast food.
  • However, at night there isn’t even a coffee machine available.
  • The station is open all night. Even at night, there is a lot of light here (so you can’t sleep much) and there are always enough people around.
  • The ticket offices of individual carriers are situated downstairs in the vestibule.
  • The station security takes care of order.

There are three luggage storages in Prague at the main train station:

b) luggage storage with service

c) storage close at the exit from the station hall

Bus from the station to Prague airport

There is a direct Airport Express (AE) bus line from the Prague main train station to Václav Havel Prague Airport.
The bus stop is upstairs by the station. Access is barrier-free suitable for wheelchair users too.
This bus line is the fastest and cheapest connection from the main train station to the airport. All buses of the AE line are low-floor with extended space for luggage.

A ticket for the Airport Express bus costs 100 CZK for an adult and half for a child. Children under six years travel for free. Luggage up to a size of 90 x 60 x 40 cm is transported free of charge too. In addition, a baby carriage, animals in a box, a pair of skis, a snowboard and bicycles are transported free of charge too.

Tickets for the Airport Express (AP) bus are sold directly with the driver (you can pay in cash or by card), in the station hall in the ticket offices close the entrance to the subway, in the airport hall and at the České dráhy ticket offices.

Snack-bar and restaurant

At Prague Main Train Station, there are many shops where you can buy pastries, drinks, and packaged food. Additionally, there are fast food outlets offering take-away meals for the train or for sitting down. There are also cafés and two traditional restaurants. However, these are more expensive and require more time. Both are located at the beginning of the hall and are opposite each other on opposite sides of the vestibule. Here is a review of just some of the restaurants.

Potrefená husa

The restaurant „Potrefená Husa“ is on the left side at the beginning of the station hall. They offer a cheaper lunch menu until three o’clock, but there are only two dishes to choose from, and by half-past two, the cheaper pasta was already unavailable. You can purchase a soup with the lunch menu. I ordered a traditional Czech dish, „Šípková“ sauce with meat and dumplings. The food was good, as was the beer. The service was fast. However, the price for the lunch menu seems a bit high to me. Moreover, if I compare it with other establishments of the „Potrefená Husa“ chain, I have had better meals in this price range.

Burger King at Prague main train station

Traditional restaurants usually offer better and tastier food, but most travelers do not have that much time. Therefore, they buy packaged food or go to fast food outlets. Upstairs in the hall, near the departure boards, is „Burger King.“

Klady

Prague Main Train Station is a modern station with wide, high, and clear platforms. Access to the station and platforms is barrier-free. There are large information panels and departure boards. Despite the number of people, the station is clean. I like the selection of shops and fast-foods, although they are a bit more expensive. I also appreciate the possibility to take a shower, which is especially useful in the summer heat. The entire vestibule is lit up overnight as if it were daytime, so even if you are traveling early in the morning or waiting for a connection after arriving in Prague, it is comfortable.

Zápory

For my taste, there are too many people at the station. All the benches are usually occupied. When you travel at night or early in the morning, the food shops are closed, and there is nowhere to sit. The station is really large, so the walk from the metro to the platform can take several minutes. And then there's the dirty park in front of the station, which is really terrible.
