In addition to being the oldest and largest steamboat on the Vltava River, the Vyšehrad steamboat is one of only two remaining historical paddle steamers in the whole country. It was built as a boat intended for personal transport during the interwar period, when steamboats were in vogue.
The Vyšehrad is used mainly as a restaurant steamboat.
On the last weekend in September, the historic steamship Vltava set sail for the last Slapy cruises of this year's cruise season.
The holidays are in full swing and with them the time for vacations and especially trips. Many Czech and foreign tourists choose to take a boat trip to Slapy to enjoy the impressive views offered by this route in beautiful weather.
