Prague's Little Venice: Sightseeing Canal Cruise

See some of 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.

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.

At the conclusion, return to your departure point.

Nice guided tour

Guide with good knowledge of Prague. Easy access by the Karl’s bridge. Don’t mind the weather as you sit under a rooftop. We were served a nice cup of mulled wine.

Could stand to be a bit longer

The tour was 50 minutes long but it covers very little distance. It is essentially a few hundred yards on each side of the Charles Bridge. You get a free drink that might be a 1/2 pint. On the plus side, you do get so...More

Best boat trip in Prague
