Praha Hlavni Nadrazi was opened in 1871. The Art Nouveau station building and station hall were built between 1901 and 1909, and then extended during the communist period.
Recently, the station has undergone a major renovation. Original features such as the lofty dome, stained glass windows and carved faces of women representing Prague as the ‘Mother of Cities’ have survived, while new areas have been added.
Praha Hlavni Nadrazi is split over several levels. Facilities include 24 hour luggage storage (over the counter and lockers), clothes and books shops, pharmacies and other medical and toiletries vendors, fast food outlets, bureaux de change (currency exchange), cashpoints (ATMs) and information services.
A small Prague Tourist Information Office is situated in the centre of the lower hall, 20m from the station exit doors. Opens Monday-Saturday 10:00-18:00 all year.
Praha Hlavni Nadrazi has a metro station, Hlavni Nadrazi (line C), and a tram stop is nearby – exit the station, and with the park in front of you turn right.
