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.
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:
After disembarking at Císařský Island, follow the road to the Císařský Island riding hall and to a ferry across the Vltava River. After the ferry 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.
Don’t miss out on the last available dates for corporate cruises on the Vltava River. Experience the best party in the heart of Prague with Paroplavba.
The Prague Steamboat Company’s 154th cruise season has come to an end. However, we still offer voyages from the Dvořák Embankment under the PRAGUE BOATS brand all winter long.
The journey to a total of twenty cells on Rašín and the opposite Hořejší Embankment was connected by a special cruise on the Andante boat.
