The Czech capital has been a magnet for tourists for years thanks to the city's infectious blend of beautiful architecture, a great arts scene, and activities for all ages. Prague is a big place, with a population running well into seven figures, so it can be tricky getting around the city. An excellent solution is to rent a vehicle from Enterprise Rent-A-Car, which provides convenience and flexibility when traveling. In addition to the the Prague airport branch, you can also find Enterprise at the Congress Center, which is near many of Prague's central attractions. With a car rental in Prague, there's never been a better way to travel this glorious part of central Europe.
There's something for everyone with Enterprise's wide range of rental vehicles. If you're doing a tour of Prague's historic buildings, like the city's castle, you may feel the need to arrive in style. A full-size sedan is both refined and relaxing. On the other hand, a family drive to Prague's iconic Lennon Wall that's covered in graffiti art might call for a comfortable SUV with plenty of space for all the kids.
Prague's Vaclav Havel Airport was named in 1989 after a dissident playwright that later became the first President of free Czechoslovakia. The airport lies on the western outskirts, about 10 miles from the city center. It is among the busiest airports in central Europe, catering to over 12 million passengers every year. There is an Enterprise branch at Prague Vaclav Havel Airport with friendly and helpful staff on hand, making car rental extremely simple for visitors. You can arrange a car rental online and pick the car up at the airport for maximum convenience.
Prague is full of green spaces, and a day exploring its parks and gardens becomes even more simple when you have a rental car. You could visit the Vrtba, with its elegant Baroque sculptures, or head to the Royal Garden, with its famous Singing Fountain. The long medieval Charles Bridge is another must-see for any visitor, as is St Vitus Cathedral, located in the grounds of Prague Castle. More modern entertainment can be found at the Dancing House, a bizarrely-constructed building designed by Frank Gehry.

You could easily spend weeks touring just city attractions, but with a car hire in Prague, a look at some attractions further afield can be an enticing prospect. Just 9 miles southeast of the city is Pruhonicky Park, a richly ornate castle set on nearly 600 acres of landscaped grounds, which are perfect for walks. At Teletín you'll find the Máj Lookout, which is 15 miles from the capital. An easy hike will reward you with sensational views across the Vlatava River. Go on a weekday, and you may have it almost to yourself.
Driving in Prague is much easier if you avoid workweek rush hours and weekend traffic, including Friday evenings. You'll have the best experience traveling at quieter times, such as mid-morning or early afternoon. Keeping to the main highways away from the old streets in the center, as well as staying near the Vlatava will help ensure your driving experience is worry-free. There are quite a few parking lots in the city that you can leave rental vehicles for an entire day at fairly good prices. For on-street parking, it's important to check local signage because parking may not be permitted if it's a street cleaning day.
