Final Destination: Munchen
All trains also call at: Plzeň and Regensburg
*These trains also call at Praha-Smichov station after they have departed from Praha hl.n. station.
Praha h.l.n. is on the eastern edge on the city centre and these trains take around 10 mins to cross the city to Praha-Smichov
So the quickest end-to-end journey from Prague city centre is take a Line B Metro to its Smíchovské nádraží station where transfers are available to Praha-Smichov.
Line B calls at Můstek, the closest Metro station to the heart of the old town.
Praha-Smichov station is a functional rather than a beautiful station, but the transfer from the metro isn't any more awkward than at Praha hl.n.
Though the disadvantage of boarding at Praha-Smichov is the train will already have picked up passengers at Praha hl.n station.
