Prague Visitor Pass
Enjoy the best of Prague
Most major cities offer tourists a special tourist card, thanks to which it is possible to visit at a reduced price or even get free admission to many popular tourist sites, or to undertake various sports, cultural and other activities at a significant discount. Even in Prague, some such tourist cards have been operating so far (e.g. Prague City Pass, Prague Card), but all of them were owned by private entities. Since June 2022, the Prague Visitor Pass, an official tourist card issued directly by Prague City Tourism, has been available to tourists.
