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

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

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

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

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

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.
