Getting from Holesovice Train Station to Old Town
Holesovice train station
The train station Prague-Holesovice (Nadrazi Praha-Holesovice) is the second biggest train station in Prague. It is situated outside the city centre, unlike the Main train station, which is near the top end of Wenceslas Square. Therefore, if your train continues to the Main train station (Hlavni Nadrazi), you may prefer not to exit it in Holesovice.
Holesovice station lies in a district of Prague called Holesovice, on a peninsula formed by the river Vltava. The station serves mainly trains arriving to Prague from the north or west, for example long distance trains from Dresden or Berlin in Germany.
Take metro to Muzeum and walk down the Wenceslas Square
The best way to get from Holesovice to the Old Town is by metro. Take the metro (the red line C) to the station Muzeum (4 stops), which is located at the top of Wenceslas Square next the building of the National Museum. From here you can walk down the Wenceslas Square, which itself is a must-see when you are visiting Prague and provides lots of shopping opportunities and restaurants (but also crowds of people and pickpockets). Without stops you should get to the other end of the square in 10 minutes. Then continue roughly in the same direction in the streets Na Mustku and Melantrichova. In another 5 or 10 minutes you should stand in front of the Old Town Hall under the Astronomical Clock.
Metro from Muzeum to Old Town
If you don’t want to walk from the Muzeum Station, do not exit the metro entirely here and switch to the line A instead (green line). Take one stop to Mustek (the bottom of Wenceslas Square) or two stops to Staromestska (which literally means Old Town Station).
