The Prague Steamboat Company has a long tradition in the area of personal water transport going back many years. It was founded in 1865 by Mayor František Dittrich and thus belongs among one of the longest operating purely Czech companies.
We operate two historical restaurant paddle steamers, the Vltava and the Vyšehrad, which were declared cultural monuments in 2013. Both refurbished and completely functional steamers cruise on regular routes through Prague, on excursions to Slapy and Mělník and are a popular place for company and private events.
Our mission is to preserve both historical steamboats in such a way that current as well as future generations get to know the magic of steam navigation in its most original form.
Enjoy a weekend trip to the zoo, but only through the end of September. Take advantage of this final chance to take a cruise from Rašín Embankment to Císařský Island and then a free ferry to Troja.
On Tuesday, 10 September, the historical Vltava steamboat hosted the representatives of the Prague Riversides, the Office of Public Spaces, and the architect of the riverbank revitalisation, and—together with guests—discussed the future of Prague’s riverbanks.
On Saturday, September 7, we will sail for one-hour cruises along the changed route. The reason is the Prague City Swim event in the vicinity of Střelecký Island.
