5 historic sights you must see on a Prague boat tour

Vltava river cruises often sell themselves on views of the spectacular Prague Castle, and who can blame them? But is the hilltop landmark really best seen from a boat? Here are five sights that are!

Charles Bridge

Charles Bridge

As the River Vltava's only crossing until 1841, this 15th-century, gothic pedestrian bridge was crucial for connecting the castle and Old Town for much of the Prague's history.

National Theater

National Theater

The National Theater, home of Czech opera and performing arts has been running since 1881. Can't get tickets for a show? Compare night boat tours to see its stunning exterior illuminated instead!

Rudolfinum

Rudolfinum

Even in a city as handsome as this, the magnificence of this auditorium and art gallery is dwarfed only by Prague Castle. It's home to one of the oldest concert halls in Europe.

Čertovka

Čertovka

The "Devil's Stream" was dug to power medieval watermills still visible today. You'll also see the sights of Kampa Island, including Liechtenstein Palace.

Dancing House

Dancing House

Designed by Vlado Milunić and Frank Gehry to symbolize Czechoslavikia's transition to democracy, the Gaudí-esque Dancing House stands out amid Prague's Baroque and Gothic cityscape.

Planning Your Visit

How much does it cost?

Prices for sightseeing boat tours of Prague's Vltava river begin at €8 for a basic, one-hour sightseeing package, but can cost upwards of €50 for a better quality tour complete with meals and – as is quite popular on Vltava river cruises – live music.

What about dinner?

The banks of the Vltava look splendid lit up by night, so why not book an evening's dinner cruise? Unless you're after something fancy, prices for these (often with a buffet) are very affordable. There are also lunch cruises available if those better suit your itinerary.

What people are saying about Prague

Amazing service with a lovely atmosphere

The waiter we had was absolutely exceptional - waiting to the whole boat, on his own, deliverng 10/10 service to every table, without fail. The food was brought out very quickly and efficiently and tasted very good. I had the pork which was very nice and my partner had the salmon, which was the best salmon she has ever had. My only words of improvement are to have some vegetables with the main dishes. The jazz band created a very relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere and the views of Prague speak for themselves. I would highly recommend to any couples who are visiting Prague.

one calm and relaxed Vltava river experience

We took the boat ride after a busy day doing sightseeing and a lot of walking! It was a good end of the day, caught a glimpse of a lovely sunset over the river while enjoying the slow, peaceful flow of the river! The only thing that can be improved is to provide an audio recording of one's preferred language - what we got was info on 5-6 languages and i found that distracting and not really helpful!

As first time visiters to Prague this tour was an ideal taster.

The tour guide was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable on the tour. He obviously enjoyed his job. Overall it was a very good experience and gave us the confidence to explore Prague on our own following the tour. Good value for money compared to other similar tours available

Lovely evening dinner cruise with view of Prague

Good food and enjoyable music while cruising on the river. The boat did stop for quite a while at one point which was OK but it would have been preferable to have been cruising the entire time. Overall, my group of 4 adults recommend this evening dinner cruise.
