Few activities can be so authentic as visiting the city on board of the old Prague tram. Since 91, you can see a restored tram from 1930 running through the historical centre and visiting some of the main monuments and buildings in Prague.
The tram, although is old, is not out of tune with the buildings or streets through which it passes, surrounded by Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings mostly is like a trip back in time to Prague in the early twentieth century. The same one that Alfons Mucha or Franz Kafka went through.
Something that the childrens like very much is that the reviewers also dress in the clothes of the epoch and wear the typical long moustaches and hats that they have seen in the movies.
Where to buy the old tram tickets
There is no need to make a prior reservation, the ticket can be purchased directly from the inspector at any of his stops.
The price is 35 Czk for adults and 20Czk for children under 15 or over 70 years. There is also the option to get a dayly ticket for 100Czk adults or 60 Czk for children and seniors.
The historic tram number 41 operates only in the high season periods from March to November. In winter the service is not available.
It is active on weekends and Czech holidays from 11:00 am until 6:00 pm, when it returns from the last trip.
Be careful, because as you can see on the timetable, the first tram leaves at 11:02am from Brusnice station and the last one leaves at 17:02pm for the last ride, so the last lap is at 17:00.
The best time to do this tour is at 12:00, as the first one in the morning usually departs with considerably more people than the others. Besides, as it finishes around 13:00h it is the perfect time to have lunch in Prague.
The route of the tram is circular and takes about an hour, although it has undergone different variations since this historic line began operating, it is still part of the route of the first Prague trams.
Officially, the first stop is Vozovna Střešovice which is where the Museum of Public Transport is located. But as we have indicated, you can get on at any other stop.
