From Copenhagen to Prague with yellow bus

Czech company Student Agency operates buses between Copenhagen and Prague (and several other cities in the Czech Republic). Contrary to what the name could suggest, you don’t need to be a student to travel with the bus.

There are usually two pairs of buses every week – at the time of writing this article the departures are on Friday and Sunday from Copenhagen and on Wednesday and Friday from the Czech Republic.

The bus leaves Copenhagen at half past five in the evening, crosses Germany during the night, and arrives in the Czech Republic in the morning the next day. Scheduled arrival to Prague Florenc station is at 5 am. Standard duration of travel from Copenhagen to Prague is 11.5 hours.

From Prague the bus continues to Brno (Grand Hotel bus station), Olomouc, Novy Jicin, Frydek-Mistek, and Ostrava (stop at central bus stop).

Student Agency service on board

Every Student Agency bus has a steward on board who offers you warm drinks (free included in the ticket’s price) and answers your questions (all stewards speak English). You can borrow headphones and listen to music or watch a movie. Sometimes there are Czech movies with English subtitles, which could be a nice experience of the Czech culture or a nice introduction to Prague if you are coming for the first time.

Student Agency tickets and booking

It is highly recommended to book tickets online at least few days prior to departure. One-way ticket from Copenhagen to Prague costs EUR 70; round trip costs EUR 113. The fares from Copenhagen to Brno are EUR 76 and EUR 125, from Copenhagen to Ostrava the bus costs EUR 80 one way and EUR 133 round trip. Cancellation or rebooking is possible until 24 hours prior to departure for a fee.

Student Agency Copenhagen – Prague bus stops

Copenhagen bus stop in Ingerslevsgade

In Copenhagen many international long distance buses, including Student Agency buses to Prague, stop in Ingerslevsgade (street name) next to DGI Byen. There is no terminal building, only few signs with schedules, so don’t be surprised if you can’t find the “station”.

If you wait longer and need luggage storage or internet café, go to the nearby Main train station (København H), which is about 200m far and easily visible from the bus stop in Ingerslevsgade. You can easily get to København H and Ingerslevsgade with a variety of S-trains and buses from all parts of Copenhagen and Sjælland.

Prague Florenc station

In Prague the bus from Copenhagen arrives at the international bus terminal Praha-Florenc in the city centre. It is only about 15 minutes walk to the Old Town and even less to many hotels. Florenc is an important hub of Prague public transport with numerous bus and tram lines and the intersection of metro lines B and C. The main train station is only one metro stop far.

Brno stop

Note that in Brno Student Agency buses don’t stop at the main bus station Zvonarka. Their stop is located in front of Hotel Grand few metres from the train station. See more details and directions to major Brno bus stations.

Note: The schedule and prices are as of November 2009. Go to the carrier’s website for updates. You can also see bus.pragprague.com for more detailed information about travelling to Prague by bus.
