If you are looking for some unusual Prague sightseeing, you can take advantage of Prague Venice boat trips and see Prague’s main sights from the perspective of the fisherman sailing the Vltava River with his boat 100 years ago. You will be guided to places that tourists do not so often visit, such as watery casemates of the Old Town, Certovka channel, and many others. From the boarding place at the site of the former Judith Bridge (by Krizovnicke namesti), you will be taken through a lagoon under Karlovy Lazne (Karlovy Spa). Then you will admire magnificent views of Prague – Prague Castle, Petrin Hill and Lesser Town roofs. National Theatre and then a drive under the Charles Bridge and continues to the Certovka channel. You will be introduced to all places seen within the boat drive, all important historical events relating to the route by professional guides speaking English, German, Italian, Spanish and French. Wooden Prague Venice boats are unique, as they were built as a copy of original boats sailing the Vltava at the end of the 19th century. They have flat-bottomed craft sited high up in the river, enabling them to enter the Certovka channel, other tunnels and narrow spaces.
You can enjoy this pleasant experience either in summer and in winter, as all boats are heated and roofed. Cold drinks are offered in summer, boiled wine or hot tea provided in winter.
