Top Prague River Cruises

Below I have detailed the best river trips for your time and money.

Cruises range from 1 to 3 hours. The longer the cruise - the more you get to see and experience.

And some cruises combine beverages, a meal, or something sweet. There's something here for any budget and time slot. 

One Hour Cruise

This short cruise is very popular.

It's also very cheap considering the amount of things you get to see.

Cruise the Vltava and see the Castle, Charles Bridge up close and the beautiful National Theatre.

You can read more about the one-hour cruise here.

Two Hour Cruise

Two hours is the perfect time to enjoy the river and more sights. It also gives you more time to rest and relax.

If you're not short on time, I highly recommend a two-hour cruise.

The boat expands its use of the river and will pass under Charles Bridge and pass through the lock further south. If you have kids, this is always an exciting moment.

After passing through the lock, your trip expands to see even more sights. Many of these are lesser known spots which you would likely see only from the boat.
