Smaller cars such as compacts, sedans, and coupes are by far your best option for car type in Prague. There are many small streets and narrow alleys throughout the city that can be quite difficult for larger cars such as SUVs or trucks to navigate, especially in the older and more historic parts of town. Also, parking can be a major issue for larger cars, as some of the streetside parking spaces can be quite tiny.
The speed limit in built-up areas is 50 km/h (31 mph) while outside of towns and cities it goes up to 90 km/h (56 mph). On motorways and highways the speed limit is usually around 130 km/h (81 mph).
On average, petrol prices in Prague are just around 33 CZK ($1.44) per liter of gas, which in gallons is about 124.91 CZK ($5.47). This is a fairly decent price for petrol in Europe compared to Frankfurt’s average cost of €5.87 ($6.68) and is just about equal to Sevilla’s average of €4.92 ($5.59).
Parking garages are one of the better options for drivers in Prague. Parking spots in the downtown area, especially in the central business district, fill up quickly during the work week, so garages are often your best bet for guaranteeing a parking spot. Streetside parking is still available, but it is limited in quantity during the peak business hours of the day.
