Prague Ruzyne International Airport
Fast becoming one of Europe's busiest airports, Prague-Ruzyne in the Czech Republic's capital handles almost 13 million passengers annually. The 16km- (10 mile-) journey south into Prague takes around 25 minutes by taxi.
The airport has a great selection of shops in which to browse. Fill up on duty-free tobacco, alcohol and perfume, and save some time for wandering around the quality shops. Although Czech glassware is sometimes cheaper in Prague itself, the stores Blue Praha, Swarovski and Erpet Bohemia Crystal are a window-shopper's delight. If you have spending money to spare, indulge in a last-minute designer flurry in STYL, in the transit area of Terminal 1; here you will find Versace, Hermès and Ferragamo clothing and accessories. European travellers may not find the prices so cheap, due to EU import regulations.
T-Mobile Hotspots provide free Wi-Fi internet connections throughout both terminals. Pay by cash, credit card or via mobile phone. There are internet cafés in both terminals.
East & Drink
Eating options are good both before and after security. Eat heartily at Celebrity Steakhouse in Terminal 2. Enjoy a lighter snack at Black & White Café in Terminal 2, one of the classy cafés scattered through the airport. Late-night passengers can grab a quick bite in Fresh Food Service, one of several 24-hour self-service restaurants. Reminisce about Prague's beauty over an icy pint in Bar in the Sky at Terminal 1 arrivals. Relax over a shot of expensive whisky in Bar & Café Hole in One in Transit at the same terminal.
