The new Prague steamboat season began with a cruise on the majestic steamer Vyšehrad.
This steamer has been sailing on the Vltava river since 1938. It is the largest steamboat in the Czech Republic and celebrates its 75th birthday this year. We photographed the steamer for most of the cruise so you can see its journey for yourselves.
The cruise began from Rašínovo Embankment and progressed downstream through the Smíchov lock to the most beautiful part of the city where it sailed under the Charles Bridge and went on to the Hlávkův Bridge where it turned and headed back through the lock to pass under the mythical Vyšehrad.
Our long-term goal is to build a modern and wholly ecological fleet. This trend continues this year...
Open House Prague hosted a truly unique event in the form of a cruise on the last of the two historical steamboats, the Vltava.
The Vltava steamboat became one of the nineteen reading places within the literary happening Night of Literature 2019.
