The only Czech hotel boat Florentina embarked on a show cruise yesterday from Nymburk to Poděbrady. This year Florentina will sail regularly from Prague to Litoměřice and Poděbrady making a total of 21 journeys.
The Florentina caters for Swiss and German tourists, mostly pensioners. She holds up to 96 passengers, and has a crew comprising of more than twenty members. Last year, the Florentina embarked on 12 weekly cruises, this year the number will be almost doubled.
The Florentina was built in 1980 in Berlin and served as a botel on the Rhine and Danube. In 2008 she was bought by the European Water Transport company and completely reconstructed ready for a new era of travel. The boat successfully operates today and was sold last year to the Swiss Thurgau Travel Company.
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.
