Want a quick overview of the city? Check out this one hour Prague cruise.
It's just enough time to experience the river up close and get an absolutely fun perspective of the city.
Starting in Old Town, the cruise offers panoramic views of the castle and gets up and personal with Charles Bridge.
My personal highlight is when you pass along the Devil's Canal. This passage in Mala Strana (Lesser Town) is unique to this cruise and too narrow for the large boats.
You'll get to see a mill wheel and parts of Mala Strana that are impossible to see on your own.
starts at Pier 3, just north of Old Town and leisurely
makes its way upstream on the Vltava River while passing
a number of stunning sights along the way.
While you take photos, the captain's commentary will supply you with a little history and current information regarding the sights you'll see.

Cruises are operated by EVD (Prague Boats). They are a well respected local company and have been offering Prague river cruises for many years.
The cruise departs from a lovely area near Old Town. It's part of Prague's old cobbled riverfront with quiet views of the river and Prague Castle.
At the dock you will also note the greenery of Letna park across the way with its huge red metronome - at one time, an enormous statue of Stalin stood in its place.
Heading south, the boat passes between Lesser Town and Old Town. Here are a few sights worth noting along the way:
If we had emphasize a sight on this list it would probably
be Charles Bridge.
The cruise offers a detail and closeness to the bridge that cannot be matched on any other tour. The boat even slows near the bridge so you can consider its beauty and history.
If you prefer to see more of Prague, consider a two hour Prague cruise.
