Cruise to the zoo

Cruise to the ZOO

Travel to the zoo in a different way – on-board a motor cruiser or steamboat. Avoid traffic stress in the city and have a wonderful experience with your children. During the comfortable cruise you will have the opportunity to show your children an interesting view and Prague monuments and also enjoy refreshments.

The regular boat connection departs from the Rašín Embankment or from Čech Bridge and in 75 or 55 minutes respectively will take you to the dock on Císařský Island near the zoo.

In the same way you can enjoy the trip home and again embark from the dock on Císařský Island and cruise by boat back to the centre of Prague to Čech Bridge or to the Rašín Embankment.

Even the trip to the zoo or back will become an extraordinary experience and children and adults will long remember the day spent in this way.

You will see:

  • panorama of Prague Castle
  • Vltava bridges and islands
  • the completely new Troja Bridge
  • Letná Gardens and Metronome

Look forward to:

  • a comfortable cruise on a boat without the stress of city traffic
  • refreshments during the cruise
  • magnificent views of Prague monuments
  • exciting passage through one or two locks

Cruise route:

The boat sets sail downstream from the dock on the Rašín Embankment and first passes through the Smíchov lock chamber and then past the shores of Kampa under the Charles Bridge. It passes the lovely Kosárek Embankment and stops at the dock at Čech Bridge. Here it's possible to board the boat.

From there it heads further downstream to the lock chamber at Štvanice Island, past Holešovice and Libeň, under the Barikádníků Bridge and the new Troja Bridge before heading to the dock at Císařský Island. Here the cruise ends. 

From there you can go on foot along the following route:

How to get from the dock to the Zoo:

After disembarking at Císařský Island, follow the road to the Císařský Island riding hall and to the footbridge across the Vltava River. At the end of the footbridge take a left onto Povltavská Street, which will lead you straight to the lower entrance to the zoo. Or you can turn past the parking lot on U Trojského zámku Street and enter the zoo via the main entrance. The whole walk takes about 17 minutes.
