Barrier free Prague

Accessible logo

For a long time Prague was considered to be unfriendly for people with any handicap. Fortunately the situation has been recently improving. For example, many places of interest and public buildings have been made accessible. A number of low-floor buses operate in the city (the type of the bus is always noted in timetables.) In 2007, low-floor trams were also introduced, which makes travelling in the city centre much easier. The new underground stations on the outskirts are also designed to be accessible, but there are still only a few stations in the centre equipped with a lift.

All wheelchair travellers have to note that some parts of Prague are hilly. For example, Prague castle is on quite a steep hill, but this is what makes Prague landscape so picturesque.

Some of the roads in the historical centre are cobbled. Again, this has some positives, as it gives Prague the feeling of times past. Moreover, a wheelchair-friendly revitalization of pavements is quickly progressing in the centre.

In this section you will find some tips where to go in Prague.
