Shipping takes place all year round on the Vltava River. At any time of year, the Czech capital is beautiful; however, many tourists prefer Prague in the summer. In the midst of the summer heat, few things are more pleasant than observing the city from the breezy, comfortable deck of a ship, rather than from the window of a stuffy bus. In the spring, a boat trip also allows you to avoid weather troubles such as wind or rain. In the autumn, the weather generally is still warm, so you can easily combine boat trips with hiking or bus trips. In the winter, the city is transforming - preparing for New Year and Christmas; tourists come to enjoy the festive atmosphere.
As to the best time of the day for a river cruise: during the day, tourists who want to see and learn more about the main historical and architectural sites and tourists travelling with children tend to frequent the river restaurant.Evening river cruises typically attract couples who enjoy romantic dinners, as well as those who enjoy exploring the night-lit city.
