Kobylisy Station is one of the most important public transport hubs in the northern part of Prague. It is the interchange of the metro (line C), trams (to four directions: Holesovice, Palmovka, Dablice, and Vozovna Kobylisy), local buses (especially buses to the densely populated Bohnice district), and regional buses to small towns and villages located to the north of Prague. Neighbouring stations on metro line C are Nadrazi Holesovice and Ladvi.
Kobylisy is one of the newer metro stations in Prague – it was opened together with Ladvi Station on 26 June 2004. It is also relatively deep and has one of the longest escalators in Prague metro network.
