What we like about the Visitor Pass

There are many arguments in favour of the Visitor Pass:

  • With the Visitor Pass you can visit most of Prague's top attractions for free. A guided city tour, a boat trip and a tram city tour are also available free of charge.
  • You can use all public transport free of charge - including metro, tram, buses and Airport Express Bus.

What we don't like about the Visitor Pass

Nevertheless, there are also a few things that we like less about the passport:

  • The Prague Visitor Pass is relatively expensive. You need to visit many attractions to make the pass worthwhile. In doing so, you only make a small saving.
  • You will not be given priority admission. If you are at an attraction, you must queue at the box office and collect your free ticket.
  • To use the app, you must first register.
  • With the Prague Visitor Pass you cannot use the hop-on/hop-off buses. The choice of free boat trips is also limited.
