The boats will sail from Nemocnice Na Františku to Prague Zoo every day at 9:00, 10:00, 11:00, 15:00, 17:00 nad back from the zoo at 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 16:00 a 18:00. The price is 100 CZK full fare and 60 CZK child fare.

The Prague Steamboat Company was founded already in 1865 by a legendary Prague Mayor František Dittrich. The company is the only operator in Prague of regular boat lines. Apart from the possibility of sailing to the zoo from Nemocnice Na Františku there is another station you can use – the quay at Rašínovo nábřeží.
