Buses 316 & 356 take 13 minutes to Metro "A" Line

The Cerny Vul bus stop is a 5 minute (or slow 10 minute) walk from the house. 
Walk past the garden centre, cross the footbridge over the stream, and turn
right past the "Cernyho Vola" pub to the bus stop. (click on these links, or
see the pictures at the bottom of this page.)  Buses are very punctual,
they rarely arrive more than 2 minutes early or late.

Buses number 316 and 356 take 13 minutes to travel from Cerny Vul through fields
and forests into Prague.   The Buses terminate at "Bořislavka" which is a bus and
metro and tram stop, and is a convenient point from which to access any part of Prague centre. 
A few steps from the 316 & 356 bus stop, access Metro Line "A" from the pavement (sidewalk)
by lift (elevator) or by steps.   Click here for more details of Bořislavka.

Metro

Prague metro is simple, efficient, effective, and usually
very pleasant to use.  Three intersecting metro lines are
labelled "A" (green) "B" (yellow) and "C" (red). 
Bořislavka of the "A" line is situated "top left"
(to the North West) of the Metro Map

The 3 lines cross in a small triangle in the centre
of Prague.  Changing from one line to another is
straight forward at any of the 3 intersection points.

Trams

Children particularly love travelling on Prague trams.

It is possible to see a great deal of Prague from trams
and certain routes such as 22 and 26 are known for
providing good sightseeing for tourists.  The routes
do change from time to time though, so check that
you have the latest information.

Historical trams as much as 100 years old can be
hired for special occasions, such as weddings, but
are occasionally available for regular travel by the
general public.  The Tram Museum is also worth a visit.

The following pictures show the route from the Cottage to the bus stop:-
