The River Vltava, also known as Moldau, is the longest river in Czech Republic. The river is 430km long and during a trip on the river inside Prague, you will get to see the beautiful attractions and buildings surrounding the rivers. The most popular tours take place in the evening, but there are also opportunities to go on lunch cruises for those who would like to see Prague from the river during the daytime. Our recommendation would though be a cruise in the evening where you can enjoy the beautiful buildings illuminated with great lights.
There are several companies arranging different tours, but we have very good experiences with the following tours, which you can also book directly through us.
Available: Every day
