Full description
Make your way to the dock at Čech Bridge (Čechův most) in Prague and go to pier 5 to board your boat to the Devil's Channel (Čertovka). The Devil's Channel is said to have been named in the 19th century after a woman of devilish character. Originally built as a millrace, today it divides Malá Strana from Kampa Island. You will cruise along the Vltava River to the Devil's Channel, enjoying views of Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge along the way. See medieval houses that seem to grow out of the water and listen to the clatter of the mill wheel as in days gone by. Admire the Grand Priory Mill, one of the most famous of Prague's preserved mills and explore the mysterious Devil's Channel up close.

Nice trip down the river. The driver provided information on the surroundings along the river. He also had a few pictures showing the floods that happened in 2002. Devils channel is narrow, like being in Venice canals. But overall there are plenty of opportunities for pictures. Good trip if you have an hour to spare!

Planned a sunset trip (6:30pm, mid-Sept) but didn’t account for sun being in our eyes on its way down, making silhouettes of some buildings we wanted to photograph (our error in judgment)! Regardless, our English guide was fine, the ride lovely and comfortable, and it proved a fun short trip on the water, which was perfect for us. Very happy experience that we’d gladly recommend!

It was a little confusing getting the tickets but not bad. what can you cover in 45 minutes? It was a short tour into the canal up to the water wheel and back, up under the Charles Bridge along one shore to the lock and back down the other side to the starting point. Gave a good quick view of things from the river.
