5 Fun Prague Perks that Come with Your Lítačka Card

Just in time for warm weather, Lítačka card has announced a number of discounts for attractions in the Czech capital, including a free day at the races

Prague’s new public transport card, Lítačka, which translates to “revolving door,” started replacing Opencard last spring.

(If you still have Opencard, you can check its validity here.)

Like its predecessor, the Lítačka acts as both a transport pass and card for the Municipal Library of Prague.

It also provides discounted admission to a number of Prague attractions; a spokesperson recently said the Lítačka rewards programs will be continuously expanded beyond what the Opencard had to offer.

While many of those discounts feel a bit meager (10 percent off admission at the City of Prague Museum or a 5-percent discount at Prague Zoo, which the Lítačka people say will change as they broaden the scope of their cooperation), some of the perks are quite substantial.

Here are the best benefits of Lítačka ownership that you can take advantage of right now:

A Free Day at the Races

Annual Lítačka card holders will receive free entry to the entire race season at Conseq Park racecourse in Velká Chuchle, the Prague race track that welcomes socialites, gamblers, and racing fans for what is a truly old-fashioned experience. The season began last Sunday and runs through October with at least 16 race days and more than 120 individual races.

One of Prague’s most famous museums—and home to one of the world’s oldest Jewish cemeteries—the Jewish Museum can be visited for half off the full admission fee with your Lítačka card (the benefit can be used once a year). Currently on display: a new exhibition marking the 40th anniversary of Charter 77, the Labyrinth of Normalization.

We know, those cheesy sailors hanging around Kampa make no one want to take a boat ride, but we’ve done it and, honestly, the unique views of the castle, scenic starting point from an ancient quay along the Vltava, and replica 19th-century vessel, give this 45-minute tour guilty pleasure status. Lítačka card users set sail for half off.

Charles Bridge Museum

Also not likely to be high on the list of must-visits for those put off by the costumed sailors beckoning tourists inside, the Charles Bridge Museum has a few things going for it, namely the largest and most detailed model of the Gothic bridge’s construction in the world, remnants of arches from the Judith Bridge which preceded that Charles, and impressive views of Prague’s left bank. The Lítačka entitles you to a half-off tour.
