If you’re new to Prague, then it’s probably best to get your bearings as soon as possible and to understand the common ground that takes place throughout the city. Especially when it comes to public transport, there is definitely an unsaid yet understood language across everyone to work together and make the entire “transit process” as smooth as possible. There are always a few people out of the loop, and boy do they get some crude looks from locals but, hey, we all have to start somewhere, right? Let’s start with the trams.

Zizkov tunnel is a pretty interesting find if you haven’t heard or known about it before. This tunnel connects the two districts of Zizkov and Karlin. Although it may seem sketchy to enter at first, don’t sweat it. The tunnel is about 300 meters long and depending on where you live, it can be faster to just walk through the tunnel than to catch the metro between these two areas. This is a pedestrian and bike-only tunnel. You won’t have to worry about dodging cars – maybe just segways and skateboards.  Once you exit the Karlin side, there are a bunch of nice restaurants, pubs, cafes and offices. It’s a bustling neighbourhood and district to walk around if you have time.Read more.
