What You Can Expect

Prague Vltava River Sightseeing Cruise

Explore the Vltava River

Choose your cruise option when you book, and travel independently to the cruise jetty on the Vltava River in the center of Prague.

Step on your comfortable boat, and take in the views from the water. Along the way, enjoy refreshments (own expense) from the onboard bar and, on the 1-hour trip, listen to the audio commentary to glean interesting facts about the passing sights. Audio commentary is not available on the 2-hour cruise. Both cruises start from and end at the same point.

1-Hour Cruise
Find a spot on deck or inside the cozy cabin, and absorb the sights on a 1-hour journey along the Vltava through Prague’s medieval center.

Snap photos as you pass massive Prague Castle, from where the spires of St Vitus Cathedral rise into the sky, and drift under statue-lined Charles Bridge, the city’s iconic, 14th-century stone bridge.

Pass other photo-worthy sights, including the magnificent National Theatre, Old Town Bridge Tower and Rudolfinum. Catch sight of the intriguing Prague Metronome, a contemporary steel sculpture that marks the time from a hilltop, and then return to the starting point, where your cruise finishes.

2-Hour Cruise
Settle aboard and drink in Prague’s landmarks and monuments on a leisurely 2-hour cruise. Follow the 1-hour cruise route before continuing further south along the river past some of the city’s lesser-known sights.

Float under the arched Jirásek and Palacký Bridges and enjoy wonderful, panoramic views of Prague’s medieval quarter as your boat pulls further away.

Navigate the Smichov Canal Lock and admire Vyšehrad Citadel, dominated by the twin spires of the Basilica and St Peter and St Paul.

Have your camera ready, too, for the extraordinary Dancing House: a curvy, 1990s building nicknamed ‘Fred and Ginger’ for resembling the shape of a pair of ballroom dancers.

After two hours, your trip ends when you dock back at the jetty.

Was exactly what we wanted: up and down the river to see the views of the city from the river and go under the bridges. Got drinks and dessert on board to enjoy while we were viewing the sights. If you can, go just before sunset- the buildings are lit up in a golden light that is spectacular!

Very nice and easy way to see the beautiful waterways. We took this tour after we had several days of walking everywhere. It was nice to relax and enjoy a different prospective of this great city

Brilliant brilliant bloody brilliant well worth the money a beautiful place to see and the boat trip was fantastic


4 star rating: Recommended October 2017

Great end of the day tour when you are tired from walking the city. If you can go at sunset. Audio tour was difficult to hear but viewing the city was much more appealing than listening to a recording. Worth it for the low cost!

Best leuk vaartrip,door de sluis heen die ineens een paar meter van wat zakt en bij terugkomst weer stijgt,je ziet veel fotowaardige momenten,het eten en drinken heb ik niet genomen aan boord,maar dat zal vast goed zijn aangezien ik de meeste extra drinken of eten zag bestellen,de hele trip duurt 2 uur maar daar zit het wachten bij de sluis erbij in 15 a 30min,maar er valt zat te zien ondertussen.
