See Prague’s monuments from a different perspective on sightseeing cruises with PRAGUE BOATS
Become enchanted by the beauty of Prague from the deck of a boat and enjoy discovering monuments away from the bustle of a busy city and throngs of tourists. You can savour an exceptional view of Charles’ Bridge and the Prague Castle together with lunch or dinner on a boat or a glass of prosecco.
An uninterrupted view of Prague’s monuments
PRAGUE BOATS depart from the Dvořák Embankment, by Čechův Bridge, where you can also buy tickets at pier no. 5, or order online for a 10% discount. During your cruise, you will get an up-close view of the pillars of Charles’ Bridge with its mystifying detailing and be treated to a breath-taking view of Prague Castle from the water. You’ll see the Straka Academy—the seat of the government of the Czech Republic—directly on the left bank of the Vltava River, as well as the Classicist building of the Občanská plovárna, and overhead you can marvel the dominating feature of the Letná Plains: the Prague metronome. On the right bank, you can admire the Rudolfinum concert hall and the architecture of Old Town. On voyages of two hours or more, you’ll learn about river navigation at the Smíchov Lock and see where the mythical horse Šemík jumped off the cliff in the legend of Vyšehrad.
The interactive guide available via the free WiFi on all PRAGUE BOATS will teach you about the history of the most prominent monuments. A printed guide is also available on all boats in six languages, and the One-Hour Cruise offers an audio guide in eight languages.
Discover Prague on a sightseeing cruise
You can view Prague’s historical city centre in comfort from the boat deck on our One-Hour Cruise or journey all the way to Vyšehrad on the Prague Grand Cruise. The secret of the Vltava canal – you can uncover its fascinating history and architecture on the Devil’s Channel Cruise, upon which your captain will take you on a smaller boat. On hot summer days, on the other hand, you will appreciate a refreshing cruise with a glass of prosecco on one of our modern glassed-in boats of our Prosecco Cruise.
Savour lunch or dinner with a view of Prague Castle
You can enjoy a delicious banquet-style lunch or dinner accompanied by live music with a view of Prague’s historical centre on the Lunch Cruise and Prague by Night cruise. For the best panoramic view of Prague Castle and Charles’ Bridge, choose the ultra-modern glassed-in boat on the Crystal Dinner cruise, where you can look forward to a stylish, banquet-style dinner, with uninterrupted views of Prague’s monuments through the glass ceiling or, in good weather, directly from the open deck. You can experience a magical evening on our exclusive, three-hour Sweet Prague cruise with a tasting menu.
The selection of banquet dishes is truly diverse and always includes at least one vegetarian or vegan and gluten-free dish.
