8. How to get to Prague
Krakow is located 530 kilometers from Prague. Travelers have several ways to travel to the Czech capital.

By car:
Getting by car to Prague is simple, especially from South Poland.
The recommended and the fastest route is by Polish highway A4 and Czech highway D1 (Krakow – Katowice – Ostrawa – Olomuniec – Brno – Prague).
It takes approximately 5,5 h.
To drive on Czech highways it is necessary to purchase a motorway vignette. Types of vignettes:
  • 10-day (310 CZK/53,50 PLN/12,5 EUR),
  • monthly (440 CZK/75,5 PLN/18EUR),
  • annual (1500 CZK/257 PLN/60 EUR).
Vignettes are available at petrol stations, post offices and Kaufland stores.
The list of sales points in the Czech Republic is available here
In Poland, vignettes can be bought in stores located at border crossings.

More informations about vignettes and how to using them: link.
