In particular, it is emphasized that there are numerous benefits for persons belonging to vulnerable categories, and Ukrainians with temporary protection can take advantage of some of them. For example:


• Children under 6 years old accompanied by adults travel free of charge.

• Children aged 6 to 15 travel free in Prague and have a 50% discount on travel in the region.

• Children aged 15 to 18 years and students aged 18 to 26 years can enjoy reduced fares in Prague and a 50% discount in the region.

• Pensioners aged 60 to 65 have a reduced fare in Prague.

• Seniors aged 65 and older travel free in Prague and receive a 50% discount on travel in the region.

• People with disabilities can travel free in Prague (except for trains) and receive a 75% discount in the region.


Preferential rules also apply to people who are currently in financial need, but Ukrainians with temporary protection are not considered part of this category.


We remind you! Earlier we wrote that Ukrainians in the Czech Republic made a significant contribution to the country's economy this year. According to estimates made by the Czech government, the amount of taxes and fees paid by this group of migrants is between 12 and 15 billion Czech crowns.
