"Paddleboat the Vltava River" Boat Tour - Cruise Tip by mbsimjam

Boat Tour - Cruise, Prague: 12 reviews and 19 photos

For about 100 Kc per hour, you can rent a paddleboat for up to 4 people and "cruise' the river Vltava with Karlovy Lazne, Charles Bridge and the Castle in direct view. It is probably the best and clearest place in Prague to take a good photo of the castle, and in a fun and relaxing place where you are (at least!) 10 metres away from anyone else, instead of constantly being crowded in the packed streets of Old Town and Mala Strana. You can also drop by Kampa, Strelecky Ostrov, and get other views up the river, such as Vysehrad, and the Dancing House.

Address: Zofin Island
Directions: The small island across the street from the National Theatre on the river. There are 2 or 3 companies to choose from.
