The bus is the only public transport that allows you to reach the city center. The possible solutions are bus 100, 119 and the Airport Express.
Bus 119 is the recommended way. It operates every day, from about 04:45 to 23:40, and can be found outside the Arrivals Terminal of the airport. The bus leads to the Dejvická metro stop; from here, with the same ticket, you can continue to your destination by subway.
Alternatively, there is the 100 bus, which leads, in 16 minutes, to the stop Zlicín, end of the line B line; from here, then, it will be possible to reach your destination by metro. Compared to Dejvická, this stop is more distant from the center (about 12 stops). The times are the same as the 119, with a frequency of about 15 ‘during the day, and 30’ after the 19:00. The 100 bus is recommended if you want to reach the new area of the city (Nové Město). Conversely, if you want to get to the airport, just get off at Zlicín; as soon as you exit the metro, you will find the bus stop clearly visible, outside.
To travel, you just need to buy a 90-minute ticket, at a cost of 40CZK (about €1.56). The ticket can be purchased at the machines and also on the vehicle, with contactless mode.
If instead you were forced to move at night, there is the bus 510. It is running from midnight wine at 05:00 in the morning and arrives at Divoká Šárka.
