The Czech Republic has an extensive railway network operated by České dráhy (Czech Railways). Trains connect major cities and towns across the country, making it a popular mode of transportation for both short and long distances.

Buses are a common mode of transportation, especially for reaching smaller towns and villages that may not have direct train connections. RegioJet and FlixBus are two popular bus operators in the Czech Republic.

Many cities in the Czech Republic, including Prague, Brno, and Ostrava, have integrated transport systems. These systems allow passengers to use a single ticket for multiple modes of transport (e.g., trams, buses, and metro) within a specified time period.

The Czech Republic is a landlocked country and does not have direct access to the sea. As a result, ferry and boat transport within the Czech Republic is limited to inland waterways such as rivers and lakes.

The Vltava River, which flows through Prague, offers scenic river cruises that allow you to explore the city from a different perspective. These cruises typically operate within Prague, providing views of iconic landmarks such as Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, and the Old Town.

Lipno Lake in South Bohemia is a popular destination with ferry connections between various lakeside towns.
