Parking in Prague

Most parts of central Prague have meter zones with fees from 30 CZK to 120 CZK per hour (or you can arrange a long-term parking permit). There are some car parks close to metro stations plus underground car parks. To reduce congestion in the city, Park&Ride parking places are used on the outskirts of Prague (at the following metro stations: Line A: station Skalka; Line B: stations Zlicin, Nové Butovice, Palmovka, Rajská Zahrada, Cerny Most; Line C: stations Nádrazí Holesovice, Ládví, Opatov). The parking fee here is significantly lower compared to parking in the city; just 10 CZK for as long as you like and the car parks are guarded.

While parked, however, it’s advisable to keep valuables locked away and out of sight of would-be thieves. The roads are in reasonably good condition and petrol is affordable.

 

Penalties for illegal parking

If you park your car illegally, you are very likely to get a penalty or so-called ‘boot on your vehicle’, or it will be towed away. Then you will have to pay a penalty and also the vehicle‘s towing away fee.

If your car has been towed away, inform the Police (158), tell them the number plate of the car and they will find out where your car is.

Prague districts Prague 1, 2, 3 and 7 are divided into 3 parking zones – orange, green and blue. Anyone violating bellow rules risk that car can be pulled away!

Blue Zone

Long-term parking zones designed solely for residents of Prague 1 or companies based in this district. Only vehicles with a parking permit can park here.

 

P&R Parking

In order to try to reduce traffic congestion in Prague the traffic authorities have provided a Park&Ride system to encourage people to leave their cars in the outskirts of Prague and take public transport to the centre (metro, trams). These guarded parking places are not only safe but are very cheap; it costs only 10 CZK regardless of how long you leave your car (available from 04.00 until 01.00 the next day, 100 CZK overnight).
