Just outside the bus station there is a bus stop for several city bus lines. In addition, the nearest tram stop is only about 250 metres away so you can basically use all 3 kinds of public city transportation to get to the Florenc bus terminal.

    Hi. Whats the difference between waiting room and restrooms? If I plan on taking night bus that departs at 3am, where can I wait before boarding, preferably inside the terminal. Thanks.

    • GetByBus Team   •  

      Hi Jane

      waiting room, is an indoor facility, where you can sit and wait for the bus, restroom is toilets. If you are driving from Prague Florence you should be able to wait inside the station.

    Hi – what’s the best way to get to Prague from Nuremberg? And are the UAN and Central bus station the same? Thanks!

    • GetByBus Team   •  

      Hi Mari,

      the best way from Prague to Nuremberg, well that is hard to say, you have lots of buses and also several trains, so i guess it is more a question of personal preference.

      The UAN and Central bus station is the same, the local name is Praha Florenc ÚAN

    How can i go from hotel pankrac to praha uan florenc bus station using public tranportation?

      Dear Jen,

      The easiest way is to use metro line C (red) which stop at Florenc. The metro station is only few minute walking distance from the bus station. Get on metro line C in direction Háje and exit at Pražského povstání stop. From there you have additional five minute walk to your accommodation.
