Perhaps my favorite thing we did in Prague was a dinner cruise along the Vltava River. The Vltava River is the longest river in the Czech Republic. There are 18 bridges crossing the river, including the iconic Charles Bridge. The Charles Bridge offers panoramic views of the entire city with Prague Castle in the distance. A River Boat Cruise in Prague is the perfect way to capture a well-rounded view of the city and put your trip over the top.
There are many options to choose from, but we personally loved Prague Boats. The company has many cruise options and the boats are well maintained.
We selected the Crystal dinner cruise. Upon arriving, we were handed a welcome glass of champagne and seated at a table for 2. This was a big win for us because many of the boats seat you at tables for 6. The wide boat features a live jazz band and glass covered ceiling. The setting is truly gorgeous. We began our cruise with a bottle of red wine as we set sail on the river.
On this particular river boat cruise in Prague, the food is served buffet style. It was delicious! The buffet featured traditional cuisine such as goulash and (fried chicken). However, if that does not suit your style, you will be able to enjoy salad, cheese, bread, chicken and rice, and other types of cuisine. We tried everything and this picky eater enjoyed it all.
When dinner ended, we headed to the top of the boat with our glasses of wine. I will admit, the boat cruises back and forth along a strip of the river in the heart of Prague, but the views never get old. You will have the chance to see Prague turn from day to night. All of a sudden, the boat turns and Prague Castle is lighting up the entire city. It is magical. Sparkling. Enchanting. All of the feels.
