Although Prague is a beautiful city no matter what time of day, it‘s especially enchanting by night. When the sun goes down, twinkling lights illuminate the city‘s ancient buildings, which are best seen from the River Vltava running through the city‘s centre.
On our Prague river cruise, you‘ll travel down the Vltava, passing famous sights like Charles Bridge, Lesser Town, the Church of St Nicholas, Prague Castle and the National Theatre – all while enjoying dinner and live music on board. Dinner is a buffet of both hot and cold dishes, and you‘ll also receive a welcome drink included in the cruise price.
Upon boarding the boat, you will be welcomed by our hostess who will take care of you during the cruise. The hostess does not substitute for a tourist guide; nevertheless, she will provide you with at least the basic information on the cruise programme and assist you if you have any enquiries or problems. There will also be professional barkeepers and catering staff looking after you.
Boat Departure Point
You can arrive directly at the embankment from which the boat departs. The boat is located between the Čechův Bridge and Šfefánikuv Bridge, closer to the Štefánikuv Bridge. It takes about 15 minutes to get there from the Old Town Square. The easiest way is to go down Pařížská Street, and when you reach the riverbank, walk down to the pier and continue to the right of Prague Castle until you see the boat marked with the sign CLASSIC RIVER. Please be at the boat departure pier at least 15min before boat departure time. If you booked transportation to the boat, the driver will pick you up directly at the hotel reception or at the given address.
Are the boats heated or air-conditioned?
All our Prague boat trips take place on comfortable, well-maintained boats with built in air-conditioning as well as heating, so that you’ll be comfortable no matter what the season. You can also sit inside the boat if it’s cold, or outside on the deck on warm nights. Most of our cruises take place on the Classic River, Prague’s biggest holiday boat that can hold up to 400 people. The boat has been fully refurbished with a stylish wooden pub on the lower deck, and three sunny upper decks that are the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the sunset.
Do I need to pre-book this cruise?
Yes. Due to our Prague river cruise’s popularity as well as the limited places on board, you’ll normally need to book in advance. Once you’ve booked, we’ll confirm your reservation within 12 hours. If you need to cancel and want a refund, be sure to inform us at least two hours in advance so you won’t be charged any cancellation fees.
How to get to the Prague boat trip departing point
When you book, you’ll have three options for getting to the pier from where the boat leaves:
- You can make your own way there.
- You can meet at the kiosk in central Prague, where a bus will take you to the pier (at no extra charge).
- You can book a private transfer with us so to pick you up (now included in our special offer – free) and drop you off at your hotel afterwards. We charge CZK 300 one way for up to four people, and CZK 400 one way for parties of between five and eight people.
