How to get to Třeboň

Getting to the Czech Republic

Prague has plenty of flight connections with all major destination in Europe and several overseas destinations (Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai, Dubai, Tel Aviv, Istanbul, New York). Třeboň is aprox. half way between two Int´l airports (Prague and Vienna), so flights to either airport is possible.


Prague is also well connected with major european cities by railway and coaches.


Getting to Třeboň

If you land in Prague, we would recommend to use the train connection from Prague to Třeboň. There is also one coach daily from Prague to Třeboň.

Getting from Prague´s airport
If you are heading for the Prague Main Railway Station (Praha hlavni nadrazi) for a train connection, we recommend you to use the special airport bus which provides a direct connection from 5:30 to 22:30 in 30 minutes intervals. Look for the Airport Express (AE). Special tickets are needed and should be purchased from the driver. The main railway station is the last stop on the route, and bus stops in front of the main hall. More information about AE here.

If you plan on using a direct coach connection from Prague to Třeboň, you should use bus No.100 from the airport to the Zličín terminal station of Underground line B (Metro trasa B). Get off at the Florenc station (Bus station). More information about public transport from the airport here.

You can also use taxis.

There are several indirect trains daily from Prague. You will need to take the main connection from Prague to České Budějovice departing the main railway station in Prague (Hlavni Nadrazi in Czech) and change trains at Veselí nad Lužnicí. Tickets (directly to Třeboň) should be bought at the ticket office in the main hall. Ticket will be valid for both trains. Timetable and Search is here. If you fall asleep and pass Veselí nad Lužnicí, don´t worry, the train terminates (most of them) in České Budějovice and you can use bus connections from there. In České Budějovice the train station is within walking distance of the bus station (across the road).

There is only one direct coach from Prague (Florenc station) to Třeboň, otherwise all other bus links are from Prague to České Budějovice and require a change for Třeboň.
