Prague's Little Venice: Sightseeing Canal Cruise
From US$14.05
Overview

Get a unique perspective on Prague’s notable waterside sights from a wooden boat on the Vltava River. Glide past the Charles Bridge and take in views of Prague Castle perched over the city. Cruise down the narrow canals of Prague’s “little Venice” and learn all about its history from an onboard guide or audio commentary. You can choose from a variety of tour times to best suit your schedule. 

What to Expect
Arrive at the starting point for a 45-minute Vltava cruise in central Prague. Board a wooden riverboat and find a comfortable seat in the covered cabin. Take in the views from the picture windows on the boat.

As you cruise along the river, snap photos of Charles Bridge and see the remains of the 12th-century Judith Bridge. Admire the view of Prague Castle and spot the Rudolfinum.

Glide into Certovka Canal, Prague’s “little Venice” and navigate canals and low bridges. Observe baroque townhouses, churches, and old wooden mills. Learn about the history from a guide or audio commentary.

Your tour ends back at your departure point.
