Czech Republic Transportations

There are some 9,620 km of railroads in 2008, connecting Prague with Plzen, Kutná Hora and Brno. In that same year, paved roadways cover 128,582 km, including 691 km of expressways. As a landlocked nation, the Czech Republic relies on coastal outlets in Poland, Croatia, Slovenia, and Germany for international commerce by sea. There are 664 km of waterways. The principal river ports are Prague on the Vltava, and Decin on the Elbe.

In 2009 there were 122 airports, of which 44 had paved runways. Principal airports include Turany at Brno, Mosnov at Ostrava, and Ruzyne at Prague. Ruzyne is the nation's primary commercial airlink. In all, Czech airports in 2001 performed 26 million freight ton-km (8.9 million freight ton-mi) of service. In that same year, domestic and international flights carried 2,559,900 passengers.

With the separation of Czechoslovakia, the new Czech Republic has rapidly replaced its former Eastern European trading partners with Western ones, primarily Germany and the rest of the EU.
