Board one of our motor cruisers or steamboats and head on a journey of discovery of the Czech lands from the deck of a boat. The trip to Mělník will take you to the confluence of the two largest Czech rivers, the Vltava and the Labe, at the historical town of Mělník. This trip full of beautiful views and famous places also includes a visit to Mělník during the long stop.

Experience an extraordinary trip with your loved ones, enjoy refreshments on-board and get to know the beauties of the Czech lands and the banks of the Vltava River in a different way. A boat trip to Mělník is the ideal opportunity for this.
