Prague is very picturesque with its many bridges crossing the flowing Vltava, but beware, when going on a river cruise on the Vltava you will only cross under a few bridges. The large boats are only allowed to go so far until the captain must turn around and go in a circle. If you wish to see Prague by boat, it would be better to rent a paddleboat on a sunny day and relax on the Vltava with a packed picnic and some wine. The paddleboats cost about $5 an hour, compared with about $50 for a lunch cruise. Paddleboats are available for rent on Zofin Island (Slovansky ostrov). Another option for those of you who do not wish to paddle, canal sightseeing cruises are available on smaller antique ships from the Prazske Benatky (Prague Venice) company that magically float on the Devil’s Canal and the Vltava River and do not cost an arm and a leg. You can find information about Prague Venice at www.prazskebenatky.cz.
