If you want to escape the crowds of Prague but still see the most famous sights of the city, take a relaxing cruise on the Vltava River. This way provides a very different perspective and breathtaking views of the city. The famous Prague Castle, Vyšehrad, and the National Theatre all will open to you in all their glory. In the winter you can go for a short cruise lasting one hour, while in the summer there are long ones which last for two hours and may include dinner, barbeque or else.

There is also the possibility to have a private romantic trip on a rented boat or Italian gondola. One more way to explore the beauty of Prague is to try a Vltara cruise on a catamaran. This can be a very pleasant and peaceful voyage. Don't miss amazing sights of beautiful houses and mills in the mysterious Devil's Channel.
