Prague River Cruise Selection
Last Updated: 1801 views
Looking for a Prague river cruise? then I’ve got a few options. One is a quick 90 minute trip on a little boat, another is a river cruise with buffet lunch and the third is an evening dinner option (with or without guide). All are scenic whether you take a day or an evening cruise. I add cruises as I find them but these are my favourites. Look out for free pick-up and drop-off offers.
EVENING PRAGUE RIVER CRUISE ON THE VLTAVA WITH DINNER AND MUSIC
Duration: 4 Hours (with guide) OR 3 Hours (without guide)
This is a straightforward Prague river cruise and dinner but you choose if you want to include the guide. I prefer the “no guide” option to the guided option as you are free to eat and listen to the music without having to listen to somebody wittering on about what year a particular place was built and by who. Just enjoy the river, the view, the meal and the music. Pick-up and drop-off may be free so check the offer. You can take all the sights at face value so bring a guidebook if you want more information. This Prague river cruise includes almost three hours of cold/warm buffet (welcome drink included) and live music. The cruise goes under the Charles Bridge with a view of Prague Castle, and the baroque churches of Lesser Town and Old Town. The boat is the same as on the other tours so the upper deck should be open. The lower deck is where you will eat so in the Summer its air conditioned and in the winter its heated. The option for this tour including an on board guide is also called “Prague by Night” and includes a bus tour around the city before you eat.
VLTAVA PRAGUE RIVER CRUISE WITH LUNCH
Duration: 2 Hours 15 minutes
A simple but popular daytime Prague river cruise which includes a nice buffet lunch. There is no guide on the cruise so it’s handy to bring a city guidebook along with you to note the major landmarks. My advice is to eat as soon as you get on the boat then go up on deck as by then the boat will have turned back towards the castle and Charles Bridge.
Duration: 1 Hour 30 minutes with guide and drink included
This is a Prague river cruise on one of the smaller boats in the city. Starting with a short scenic walk, you then embark under Charles Bridge within sight of the old water wheel and “lock your love” bridge. You then head out of the Certovka inlet and make a right turn which takes you under Charles Bridge towards the weir. You then come back under the bridge and head down river towards the Rudolfinum and Letna Park. Not much room to walk around and no open deck but a nice 90 minute trip including a beer or soft drink in the summer or a hot drink in the winter.
