Contact in Czech Republic
There are a lot of payphones on the streets of cities. From any phone on the street you can call any country in the world, the codes of some states can be found on the wall of a telephone booth. In addition, as a rule, there are also telephone directories near the telephone, consisting of two volumes. A volume with yellow pages is a directory of organizations, with white pages – telephone numbers and addresses of individuals (only those who agreed to place their data in this directory). At the beginning of the first volume are the telephone codes of the states of the world with which automatic communication is possible and the approximate price per minute of conversation. Phone cards are sold at newsstands, some stores, and all post offices. The minimum face value of the card is 175 CZK, but they are only enough for 5 minutes of communication with Russia.
To call Russia from a payphone, dial: 007 – area code – phone number.
To call from Russia to the Czech Republic, you need to dial: 810 – 42 – city code (for Prague – 02) – phone number.
Calling from a hotel is more convenient, but more expensive.
