Domestic and international buses leave from Florenc station, located at Krizikova 4 (metro Florenc).
Buses are not that popular is Czech Republic for some reason. i did not get a chance to travel in Czech by bus either so cant tell you much about the facts. Euro Lines buses run from all other major cities of Europe to Prague.
On our way back we had to catch our train at 23:30 and we had almost day to spend. The day went quick and in the evening we decided to go pub. That’s the bad thing about going to a pub, time started flying. We realized that it was getting late to go to Hlavni Nadrazi and we still had to have our dinner. It was difficult; we found a restaurant and order meal. After ordering meal we insisted to hurry up but it was revealed that it will take at least 45 minutes. 23:00 dinner was served and 23:05 we were outside the restaurant after eating and payment and running towards Hlavni Nadrazi. We had to buy ticket, collect our stuff from locker room as well. It was touch-and-go but we made it and accidentally started settling down in first class. Later on we were removed from there.
Masarykovo nadrazi railway station is not precisely wonderful station in Prague. The outside and inside look will not really catch the attention of you but still it is the main station for all the train, which goes to countrywide from Prague.
The building is very old but unfortunately it has been looked after very well.
Most trains stop at Hlavni nadrazi, although many trains, particularly those from Berlin, stop at Nadrazi Holesovice station. Masarykovo nadrazi and Smichovske nadrazi serve local and domestic routes.
On a tram. Prague's public transport system comprises bus, tram and metro. You use the same ticket, valid for either 15 minutes (8Kc or 16p) or 60 minutes during peak hours (12Kc or 24p). A one-day pass costs 70Kc (£1.40). The best tram for seeing the city is number 22, known locally as the tourist tram, which heads up to the castle through Mala Strana. Watch out for pickpockets who target this route and remember to validate your ticket which you can buy from news-stands and PIS offices, or you could get an on-the-spot fine. The Historic Tram (number 91) runs on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from Easter to November and leaves hourly from 2-7pm. The tram runs in a loop from Vystaviste, following the river in Mala Strana before crossing the Legionnaires' Bridge to the National Theatre (15) and heading up to Wenceslas Square and Namesti Republiky. You can hop on at any stage. Tickets cost 20Kc (40p) for adults and half price for children, and the whole journey takes 40 minutes.
The Cedaz minibus shuttle links the airport with námestí Republiky (Republic Square, just off the Old Town). It runs hourly, more often at peak periods, between 6 AM and 9:30 PM daily and makes an intermediate stop at the Dejvická metro station. The one-way fare is 90 Kc. The minibus also serves many hotels for 360 Kc, which is less than the taxi fare in most cases. Regular municipal bus service (Bus 119) connects the airport and the Dejvická station; the fare is 12 Kc (15 Kc if purchased from the driver), and the ticket is transferable to trams or the metro. From Dejvická you can take the metro to the city center. To reach Wenceslas Square, get off at the Mustek station.
