The cruise departs from the dock at Čech Bridge, pier No. 5 (recommended arrival 15 mins. before departure). You can choose from the inside or outside deck and order refreshments after boarding. During the cruise, you can listen to the audio guide of the cultural monuments passing by in eight languages.

First, the cruise will head upstream the Vltava River around the Rudolfinum and the Old Town. Then the boat will float under Charles Bridge, where you can have a close look at its 600-year-old stone pillars. After Charles Bridge the boat will turn back and you will have a spectacular view of Prague Castle. There is time for photo shoots of this iconic panorama. Your cruise will continue around Kampa Island with its picturesque architecture. The Straka Academy will be on the left, where the Czech Government Office is located. The view will continue with the classicist Civic Swimming Pool. Above your heads you can see Letná Park with the Prague Metronome and EXPO 58 Building. At the last turn you will pass by Štvanice Island. At the end of the cruise you will see the complex of historic buildings of the Na Františku Hospital and then return back to the dock.
