"Vltava" Top 5 Page for this destination Prague Favorite Tip by kris-t
Prague General: 753 reviews and 980 photos
Favorite thing: The Vltava is the longest river in the Czech Republic, draining into the north from its source in Sumava through Český Krumlov, České Budějovice, and Prague (Praha), merging with the Elbe (Labe) at Mělník.
It is 430 kilometers long and drains about 28,000 square kilometers; at their confluence the Vltava actually has more water than the Elbe, but joins the Elbe at a right angle to its flow so that it appears on maps as merely a tributary.
Fondest memory: In August 2002 a flood of the Vltava killed several people and caused massive damage and disruption along its length.
