Post Offices in Prague

If you need stamps, the easiest option is to buy them at the post office (pošta). It is easily identified by the yellow and blue logo (yellow postman’s trumpet against a blue background).

Post offices in Prague city centre

  • Jindřišská 14, Prague 1 – New Town (Nové Město)

    Opening hours: daily from 2 a.m. to midnight

  • Hybernská 15, Prague 1 – New Town (Nové Město)

    Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Usually you can buy stamps at a newsagent’s (trafika), a shop or often a kiosk. Bear in mind, however, that you won’t find them at a trafika in a city centre.

If you want to send a postcard or letter (weighing up to 50 g):

  • anywhere in the Czech Republic, you’ll need a category A stamp, which costs CZK 30 / approximately EUR 1.25 (last update: June 2024);
  • to European countries, you’ll need a category E stamp, which costs CZK 44 / approximately EUR 1.80;
  • to countries outside Europe, you’ll need a category Z stamp, which cost CZK 50 / approximately EUR 2.

Post boxes are painted a vivid orange, making them easy to spot. You’ll find them at various locations in Prague, especially by the entrances to post offices. There are also post boxes at Pařížská Avenue 3, just a few metres away from the Old Town Square, and opposite the main entrance to the Municipal House.
