The Prague Steamboat Company recently received a prestigious award. COT Business Editors – media experts with years of experience in the field – decided to award a project that could easily be called „Greening river cruises in Prague“.
The Prague Steamboat Company has earned the award namely thanks to several activities and projects that have been carried out in the past few years, expecially the construction of an ecological landing place at Kampa, the renovation of the Vltava steamer or the launch of a few hybrid and solar-powered boats.
The history of the landing place at Kampa which is situated in the vicinity of the oldest bridge in Prague, the Charles Bridge, dates back to 1880, last year the 130th anniversary of its foundation was celebrated. It was already before World War I – in 1912 – when the first regular river cruise to Mělník was launched.
During the landing place’s reconstruction lots of historical sources were used to make the place look like as it always used to in the past. These days it serves above all the Vltava steamboat and her sightseeing river cruises around Prague and also the ecological boats Šárka, Vlasta, Libuše and Bivoj.
Our long-term goal is to build a flotilla whose operations will not impact the environment with emissions and noise. This is why we’re investing not just in modernising our flotilla, but also in replacing the motors in our older boats.
Even though there are still a few months before the Christmas party season, we recommend reserving the date of your event as soon as possible.
Because we want not only to protect our environment, but also to actively contribute to its improvement, we have decided to plant trees that hold a huge amount of emissions in nature.
Experience New Year's Eve differently and celebrate the coming of the new year while floating through central Prague. Exclusive New Year's Eve cruises offer more than just a good time for the entire evening, they also include the best view of fireworks as they go off all over Prague.
