Prague Vltava River Sightseeing Cruise

    What to Expect
    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 listen to the audio commentary to glean interesting facts about the passing sights. Audio commentary is not available on the longer cruise. Both cruises start from and end at the same point.

    Short Cruise: Find a spot on deck or inside the cozy cabin, and absorb the sights on a 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.

    Long Cruise: Settle aboard and drink in Prague’s landmarks and monuments on a leisurely cruise. Follow the shorter 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.

    Your trip ends when you dock back at the jetty.

    We had booked the boat tour through Expedia prior to going to Prague. We received a booking confirmation email which included a barcode within a PDF file. The email specifically said we would be able to present the digital file OR a paper print out in order to redeem our tickets

    We booked this before we travelled and had planned our days with lots to see and do. We found our meeting point(by the Charles Bridge statue) 15mins before the time stated on our voucher. we could not find who to give our voucher to as there are lots of others selling trips -

    I booked the 2 hour boat trip a few weeks before I went and got an email confirmation with a very vague address of where the boat left from and two options of sailing times at 3pm and 4.30pm. We turned up at 2.45 for earlier cruise and no one could tell us where we had to go so
