GETTING AROUND THE CITY

The surface of most streets in the city center allows for a trouble-free movement, however, some streets are paved with historic tiles. Please, be careful there as you may encounter uneven terrain and curbs.

PARKING IN THE CITY CENTER

Only the holders of ŤZP or ŤZP-S (disability cards) are allowed to park on the parking places reserved for disabled persons. Such places are marked with “P Reservé” and the wheelchair symbol. The front (or rear) window of the car must feature a valid European parking card for people with disabilities. It is not possible to park on the parking places intended for disabled without this card. Parking places for the disabled are usually located in front of or in the close proximity to offices and institutions as well as shopping centers (eg Eurovea, Aupark). If the reserved parking place is occupied, parking on another parking place is no longer free of charge and you need to buy the relevant parking ticket.

The passenger is obliged to notify the driver in advance of his/ her intention to get off at the next stop by pressing the button with the wheelchair symbol.
