Prague, dresden, and the castles of bohemia

A spectacular cruise on the elbe and vltava rivers

In line with its over 40 year history of using pioneering ship technology to open up many lesser known rivers and cruising experiences in both Europe and across the world, CroisiEurope Cruises is offering a new and unique cruise on the Vltava River from Prague for the first time in 2021. 

Sailing on one of the company's paddlewheel premium ships, Elbe Princess II, which offers a combination of comfort, service and style, the cruise takes in the many hidden towns and treasures of the Bohemia region. Whilst the Elbe river is rightly more famous and is usually sailed between Berlin and Prague this itinerary cruises up the Czech Republic's longest river, the Vltava. Merging with the Elbe at Melnik, the Vltava is 267 miles long and is known as the 'Czech National River'. It flows into the Bohemia region which includes the landmark Bohemia Forest. Ships can sail as far as the Slapy Dam giving passengers an insight into the areas rich and varied cultural and natural diversity. 

With all meals, drinks and excursions included this cruise starts in Prague before sailing to Stechovice on the Vltava which is famous for its gold mines and pottery. Guests can also visit Konopiste Castle which is a Habsburg Castle famous as the last home of Archduke Franz Ferdinand before his assassination. The cruise then continues along the river taking in numerous castles and grandiose homes on its banks and steep hillsides before reaching the Slapy Reservoir at the foot of the aforementioned Slapy Dam. 


After sailing back to Prague and rejoining The Elbe the ship then offers plenty of time to take in the over 1000 years of history in the capital of the Czech republic before cruising onto Melnik, the home of the world famous composer Anthony Dvorak, and from where excursions to Dresden and Litomerice can be taken. On the seventh and last full day the cruise offers the opportunity to visit the stunning Elbe Sandstone Mountains and the Konigstein Fortress which towers on the Bastei rock formations high above the Elbe. The ship then returns to Prague on the eight day for disembarkation. 


Departures begin on 14th June 2021 and runs through to the 27th September 2021 on a weekly basis. Prices begin at 3025€ per person for a seven night cruise with all meals, drinks and excursions included. The cruise starts and ends in Prague.
