Admire Prague from the River Vltava and get a different perspective on the capital’s historic monuments.
Discover the romance of Prague’s Little Venice waterway on board a vessel specially designed to navigate these waters.
*Commentary with audio-guide in English
*The price includes a hot or cold drink and traditional Czech gingerbread (or ice cream in summer).
Every day of the year, little boats “vodouch” depart from Charles Bridge at regular intervals. They are operated by the Pražské Benátky (Prague Venice) company and typically feature dark wood interiors and windows allowing views from all sides.
A warm welcome from the Captain and a small snack awaits you on board – a hot drink in the winter and a refreshing ice cream in the summer. During the 45-minute sail, you’ll hear an engaging audio-commentary about Prague’s history and legends, with some intriguing anecdotes.
You can also take in wonderful views of the Prague waterfront, the historic centre up to Prague Castle, standing on a rocky outcrop. And you’ll also see the shallow canal known as Čertovka, which is inaccessible to the larger vessels plying the waters of the River Vltava. Magical Kampa Island is literally at your fingertips at Čertovka, just as if you were just passing through the canals of Venice.
Cruises in the little boats set sail every day of the year, including public holidays, whatever the weather.
The boats set sail regularly, roughly every 15 minutes.
The landing stage is not suitable for people with impaired mobility.
The vessels are covered, and heated in winter.
Please note that the chosen departure time is approximate: the cruise may take place at any time of the day, depending on available seats.
The voucher that you buy with us covers the boat ride, but also the small Charles Bridge Museum, where you can see a miniature of this world-famous Prague monument.Karolína, Avantgarde Prague
