Getting to the Region of Karlovy Vary


Category: Getting Here


By plane

The international airport is located directly in Karlovy Vary. The Karlovy Vary Airport offers regularly scheduled service between the town and Moscow with an airline company ČSA and POBEDA. During the summer we are prepering charter flights scheduled between the town and Tel Aviv and Tashkent. 

Other international flights are provided primarily via the international Vaclav Havel Airport Prague.

By Bus

Bus services run frequently between the Czech Republic and other European countries.

By Train

Another way of getting to the Region of Karlovy Vary in comfort is to travel by train. The rail network is rather dense here and the only part of the region with less than favourable conditions for railway transport is the Ore Mountains.

If travelling by car, you can use websites such as Google maps or for planning your journey.
