Prague Cards

Two competing companies offer the official Prague city card for tourists. The amount of reductions applied to museum and gallery entry depends upon the card chosen.

There are two "Prague Cards" :
Somewhat confusingly, two competing companies offer (what each claim to be) the official Prague city card for tourists. The amount (and type) of reductions applied to museum and gallery entry depends upon the card chosen, as do the other benefits on offer, though each provides a useful three-day option of unlimited travel (with this card, you should specify the public transport add-on when purchasing).

The original Prague Card sro (registered Czech Company) trading since 1991 and available for 740kc or 26 Euros at many recognised sites like American Express offices, Cedok travel offices and others.
A second "Prague Card and Prague Passport" can be bought from some hotels and other offices around Prague. Whilst the prices are different (the original is slightly cheaper) we leave it up to the purchaser to decide between the two.
Available for a basic price of 590 CZK for adults and 410 CZK for children and students, the card offers (for a duration of 3-days) admission to 55 museums, galleries and places of interest.

Prague Tourist Card (Prague Card) is a four-day admission card to over 50 monuments and museums throughout Prague.
It is possible to complete this Card by buying a tourist travel permit for the city public transport.
The Card is accompanied by a colour six-language brochure with information on buildings and with coupons (in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian).
Possible user: Primarily somebody on a long weekend trip who wants to visit the whole of the Prague Castle complex and the major museums/galleries. Somebody who is not bothered about using public transport but, wants it as an option.
Validity
The period of validity is four days; the Card must bear the name of the holder and is non-transferable.
