Full description

Cruise along the Vltava River to the Devil's Channel, enjoying views of Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge along the way. Admire the Grand Priory Mill, one of the most famous of Prague's preserved mills.

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. Explore the mysterious Devil's Channel up close, 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.

I went on a 45 minuts small boat crouse in prague. I chose a small boat becouse it can go to places tje big ships cant. It was wonderful. The capitan was informative, sweet, talked to all of us. There werent many peolpe. Which was perfect for me. The weather was tailor made for a cruise. I enjoyed it very much. It was over too fast

We had a very nice English speaking captain. He talked about us the entire trip. We were sitting in the back, which made it difficult to understand him. But we had the opportunity to move forward. The route is well chosen so that we saw all the sights. The start is not right on Charles Bridge, which wasn't a bad thing

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!
