After this, the ride will pass by the hill at Petřín, where you will see the historic fort of Vyšehrad.

You will see the majestic Prague Castle at night while live music spreads a beautiful serenity throughout the boat.

Worry not; you can toast this gorgeous setting with champagne or any beverage on the boat.

Dress Code for Prague Cruise

If you are a couple looking for a romantic experience, you can match your outfits or wear date outfits, depending on your choice.

We recommend you wear comfortable clothing and footwear, as heels on a boat can be challenging.

How is Prague at Night?

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is a city with many hidden gems.

While it is a wonder with its alluring historical charm during the daylight, it is even more illuminating after the sunsets.

A luminous glow surrounds the city as the night sets in, and the reflections light up the rivers, monuments, and significant landmarks.

Moreover, Prague’s nightlife is something else; with lively rooftop bars, underground bars, and trendy clubs, the music echoes throughout the neighborhood.

But if you are looking for a romantic, peaceful evening with your loved one, a night cruise with a dining experience is the best possible experience.

Meeting Point of Vitava River Night Cruise

The meeting point for both exclusive and essential ticket options is the same.
