Right after your arrival to Prague, there are several ways of reaching your Prague apartment from Václav Havel Airport Prague, which lays just over 10km northwest of the city centre.
Prague Airport has two terminals: terminal 1 serves all non-Schengen destinations; terminal 2 Schengen Zone destinations. Both are linked by a corridor and are a 5-minute walk from each other. An efficient signposting system helps you to find your way around the airport.
