Upper Vltava, little Elbe.

9 days Prague-Porta Bohemica-Neuchâtel-Prague 2020

With the Upper Vlatava from Prague and the little Elbe from Melnik to Nymburk, we will visit spectacular stretches which have not yet been navigated by riverboats. Golden Prague and the UNESCO-crowned “Silver City” of Kutná Hora are dazzling. Magnificent castles with wonderful parks, such as “the little Louvre of the Czech Republic”, are inspirational. The rivers meandering freely through spectacular mountain and natural landscapes or the Porta Bohemica, similar to the "Loreley route”, are impressive. Be captivated by the landscape and culture of this unique region.

Prague
Mooring 1:30 pm Guided tour of Prague Excursion Package

Prague is known as the „Golden City“. You first drive to the Castle (Hradschin). It was built in the 9th Century and, apart from a few short interruptions, it has been the political centre of both Prague and Bohemia. A series of kings and emperors have been responsible for its development. A guided walk through the city centre then takes you along the river bank to Charles’ Bridge, which dates back to the 14th Century. The original Gothic structure was later decorated with Baroque trappings and transformed into an architectural masterpiece. The square is dominated by the Old Town Hall with its famous astronomical clock.

Arrival and departure times are target times. The Elbe is not regulated by locks in Germany. It therefore offers a natural shoreline landscape that is unique in Europe, but is also more susceptible to high or low water than other rivers. Vlatava, in particular, is not passable at low water levels. We reserve the right, therefore, to make short-term changes to the programme (itineraries, excursions) in case of difficult water levels. If a route cannot be travelled due to low/high tides or a boat defect, the shipping company reserves the right to take passengers by bus to the excursion destinations, to accommodate them in hotels and/or change the route; it may also, however, be necessary to change to another vessel.
