    I love old European train stations, and this one did not disappoint. Took a train from here to Regensburg. Nice shops, good signage for directions. You also have to stop and see the giant Lego model of the station inside.

    Wanted to go up by cable car to Petrin but ended going by foot because of the long que. Walking took us 30 minutes. The way down was shorter because no waiting and the quick ride. Fine that it is included at a daily transportation pass.

    This station is like everyone else. It is pretty dirty and untidy. It has a lot of restaurants where you can eat well. And everyone can be sure enough under protection because there is police everywhere. Certainly it is not a station where I would like to go several times a year, only when I have to. I can recommend the best trains as Regio Jet. For example, compared to the Vienna Railway Station, this is nothing. But from the outside, it is a beautiful building that everyone should see.

    I did not take fotos so I show you one of Internet. I am really sorry😢

    We took the morning train from Munich to Prague (8:43AM) and booked 4 of us in first class, and 3 in second class (only because it seemed first was full). We booked our tickets via Rail Ninja...overall the experience with them was ok, as I could not book via Deutsche Bahn or via the Czech railway.
    This train is run by the Czech railway....so beware.
    There is no dining car...bring your own food and drinks. 5 and 1/2 hours without food or drink is tough when traveling with kids.
    I HIGHLY recommend the first class tickets over second class.
    If you buy second class tickets, make sure you get onto the second class car that is going to Prague (towards the front of the train). There is a second class car that gets disconnected along the way. Once you learn this, you have to move to another car, and by then all of the seats are taken.
    Air conditioning is non-existent...there was one second class car that was stifling.
    Once you arrive in Prague, the train station is accommodating and modern. Don't bother with the taxis....just order an Uber.
    In short, I would not recommend the train ride...instead - take a bus from Munich to Prague. It takes less time, the seats are comfortable, and there is air conditioning.

    First let me start with praise. The onboard staff are super, always smiling and helpful. It isn't their fault when things go wrong.

    With that out of the way, things go wrong and they don't set them right. You can't rely on automated customer service only and if when you complain, you only get small print terms and conditions thrown at you, it isn't much use.

    Leo Express is a good concept but run poorly in Czech. Their systems don't integrate perfectly with the national rail service (they'll blame Cesky Drahy for this) and they don't run on time.

    They also are the kind of company that favours worthless image over quality. Therefore you get cute cartoon character pictures on the website and are offered the latest nonsense dietary fads (currently insects) on board...

    ...there are alternatives, however. The very good all day brunch they used to serve has been updated by replacing the hash brown with rock potato and the beans with chick pea vomit. Yummy.
