Getting around Prague is easy, and you can do it on foot or by public transportation. There is no need to think about spending extra and renting a car unless you plan to get out of the city and explore the surroundings. Otherwise, the city is best discovered on foot, and the most noteworthy attractions are within walking distance of one another.
