Light cyan is the official colour of Line A.

It's just straight green, no?

There would have been much better ways to implement it.

Two coupled Tatra-trams on the wonderful Chotkova-Hill and one in a street next to the hill.

Yes, but it is bit expensive, there are sales machines, or you can buy it in the newspaper shop. For intensive travel there are various daily tickets.

Same thing as in Italy then, that you can buy tickets from the driver but they are more expensive and that bus tickets are sold in kiosks. In my city you can not buy tickets from the driver. Most people have a card or a ticket using a sms message.

Do you know if there are bus ticket sales at the main railway station ?
Do kiosks selling tickets have a sign outside showing that ?

We don't have tickets separately for bus, we have only one type of tickets used for tram, bus, train, metro (and funicular). So sure you can buy tickets for city transport at the railway station.

There will be only reduced public transport service in the city centre from monday, metro will not go to the city centre at all, will be replaced for tram and bus lines, many tram lines will be stopped too, there will be one new train line.

This is not the first time that metro were flooded or is in the danger of. Maybe Prag should thing of some protection. Like flood doors or similar things to protect the system from the water.

The metro is now protected well, as in the picture above.
In some stations the barrier is as much as 2m high, depending on the elevation. There is now no danger of flooding of the system. Theoretically the trains cold run through the city center without stopping in the closed stations. But for safety reasons it does not. Additional water tight doors are closed in the deep stations near the escalators. In the train tunnels there is a pair of doors on each side of the river on each line.
It should run non stop on Friday and the stations in city center could be opened later, when the water level is low enough.
Actually if they had had stopped the service soon enough in 2002, only smaller part of the system could have been flooded, bur maybe not, there were also some serious faults in the construction from the time the metro was build. They were later identified and repaired.
