The Soviet-built metro runs from 5 am – midnight, every 2 minutes in the peak and 4 – 10 mins the rest of the day.
Very long escalators carry passengers at breakneck speed to the platforms. Výstup means exit and přestup means interchange.
The stations themselves are worth a look especially the central ones have artistic wall coverings.
As there are no ticket barriers it looks as if it is easy to ride for free. Plain cloth inspectors will tap you on the shoulder, show their identity badge discretely and ask to see your ticket. If you haven't got one or haven't validated your ticket the on-the-spot fine is 500 Kč or 1000 Kč if you pay afterwards.
