Public Transport in Prague

Prague’s public transport system is said to be one of the best in Europe. The metro, trams, and buses cover the majority of the city and its suburbs. A monthly pass costs around CZK 550 (CZK 260 for students up to 26 years of age). Find more details here.

Living Expenses

Prague is a moderate city in terms of living expenses. It is much less expensive than Western European cities such as London or Paris or larger former Soviet Union cities such as Moscow.  Prices are, however, higher than in less central Eastern European cities. Personal standards may vary, but a CERGE-EI stipend should allow you to cover all necessary costs including housing, food, transportation and reasonable incidental expenses.
