Pražský Semmering - Things To Do in Prague - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

This is very old and traditional rail leading through Prague. It is not only a practical connection between downtown and outskirts but also a beautiful and romantic ride. It takes you to places which not even locals know much about. This train is part of Prague public transit so you don´t need any special ticket! Just hop on!

Why you should visit it

This is an experience you wouldn´t expect in city like Prague. The train ride starts from Main Train Station and takes you to Prague suburbs. You will see downtown (panorama of Prague Castle, or Vyšehrad) and also much of Prague nature, mountains, lovely valley and lesser known Prague quarters. You will also cross 25 m high historical viaduct.

Special tip

The name Semmering is derived from the very first mountain railway in Europe - built in Austrian Alps in the 19th century.

It was fun! I went to Prague during winter, so it was especially nice to get on the warm and cozy train and have a look at the views from the window.
