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 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 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.
