Getting to the Region of Karlovy Vary

 

Category: Transport

 

By plane

The international airport is located directly in Karlovy Vary. The Karlovy Vary Airport offers regularly scheduled service between the town and Moscow. The airport has newly introduced a flight between the town and Düsseldorf, which started March 26th and flights happen twice a week. During the summer (from June 13th until September 12th) there are charter flights scheduled between the town and Tel Aviv.  

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.
