Historic Bus K along lesser-known highlights in Prague
Public transport fans can indulge themselves in Prague and take a ride on the historic bus K. The route passes lesser-known highlights and shows a different aspect of the city. The route comprises the Dejvice district of Prague 6 and partly follows the route of the first Prague trolleybus line, which ran from 1936 to 1959 between Vozovna Střešovice and Svatý Matěj in Dejvice. If you buy a 24-hour ticket you can transfer to the nostalgic tram 41 and 42 at three stops. The buses on the historic K line are a Karos B951 and Karos B961 that ran in Prague from 2002 to 2006 and the Irisbus Citybus 12M and Irisbus Citelis 12M which ran from 1995 to 2005.
