Ok folks, I will be in Prague in a few days, but I have a problem. My flight gets into the Prague airport at like 9:30 at night. I don't want to take a taxi to the city center, but it looks like the buses stop running around 9pm.. can anyone shed some light on this for me? I also have not booked a hostel. I was going to try to just find one on the fly once I get there, but will 10pm at night be tough to find one?? Thanks!

sorry, can't help with getting around.

One great thing about the airport is that just like train stations, bus stops and bushes...you can crash there.

If thats not your cup of tea, check with the info centre at the airport. I'm sure they can help you out

Dude, book a hostel. Seriously. Prague is ALWAYS full of travellers. Always. So book. I didn't. I walked. And walked. And walked some more. It was a pain in the butt. Just book something for one night, save yourself the trouble and frustration!

you can get the bus from the airport straight to downtown prague (very easy and very cheap) and it takes about 20-30 mins
