The Czech capital is one of those rare cities that looks beautiful in any setting that you find it, whether it’s pouring with rain or basked in sunshine. For those who like the idea of enjoying the city’s sights from the water, while tucking into sumptuous food and enjoying live music, we’ve picked out three of the best cruises for dinner and jazz cruises in Prague. Our choices were based on several factors, including value for money and previous guest reviews. We hope you find them useful.

Dinner Cruise 

This 2-hour dinner cruise along the Vltava River invites guests to admire Prague’s historic monuments illuminated after dark. After collection from your city hotel, you’ll be transferred by minibus to the Náplavka riverbank near Palacký Bridge where you’ll receive a welcome drink as you board your historic 1920s boat. Cruising down the river, you’ll see such landmarks as the Prague Castle complex, the old fort of Vyšehrad, the National Theatre and the neo-Renaissance concert hall of the Rudolfinum. During the tour, you can feast from an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner against a backdrop of soothing live music. The trip concludes back where it began. From €53 per person.
