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.

Overall rating

4.1 / 5

based on 6,413 reviews

Before you go on board make sure you printed your voucher at the ticket desk with the blue sign “Prague Boats”. There you will be directed to the right pier and prevent you from staying in the wrong line. On the boat they have nice buffet which becomes available 20 min after boat departure. From food I remember were fruit section: oranges, apples, grapes, kiwis; sweets: apple strudel, brownies; appetizers: ham, salami, different cheese, salads; warm food: goulash, smashed potatoes, chicken schnitzel, rice with vegetables, noodles, baked potatoes with meat, vepřové koleno with mustard and horseradish dips, etc. Drinks could be purchased on your account which you pay in the end of the cruise, they have variety of vines with reasonable prices, i.e. vine ~ 450 czk, beer pilsner .3 ~ 70 czk, coffee ~ 90 czk and higher. There is a live music that creates a lovely vibe but still sometimes it’s very noisy. Overall, we enjoyed the trip a lot, recommended.

This is really quite a bargain for the experience. The views are absolutely amazing! The live music was great and the buffet food was delicious. Service was excellent and the people working on the boat were very kind and caring. I enjoyed the cruise very much.
