The Czech Republic river cruises from The River Cruise Line offer a variety of exciting holiday options, allowing passengers to see the beautiful Czech Republic from its pristine waterways, such as the Vltava and the Elbe.
Located at the heart of central Europe, the Czech Republic has a population of just over 10 million people. Mountains surround the north of the country, emphasising the natural beauty of the landscapes. The majestic scenery extends further into the nation, stretching across the Elbe and Vltava rivers. Via the Elbe, you can also find yourself in Germany, where we have several other river cruises to choose from.

Czech Republic River Cruises
Guide to cruising in Czech Republic
A cruise on the Elbe takes travellers through this small nation before entering Germany, while the Vltava will take visitors on the opposite trip.
Though navigation along the Elbe river has improved and developed over the years, the course of the river remains remarkably natural and passes picturesque countryside, fascinating cities and the enduring culture of central Europe.
Journeying on the Vltava river is also a beautiful experience and will lead you to Prague, the Czech Republic’s capital city
Visitors can explore Prague, the nation’s capital city, which is also known as the ‘city of a hundred spires’. It is a popular tourist destination and it is easy to get around by foot.
Another great destination is Melnik, a town in the central Bohemian region of the country. It is in close proximity to Prague and is famous for its Renaissance castle with its large wine cellars.
Great food and wine
The Czech Republic is famed for its pilsner style lager and there are more than 60 breweries up and down the country. The Bohemian region is also known for its wine production. The country’s cuisine often looks to other nations, so dishes such as goulash and pork schnitzel are common. Potatoes represent an important component of Czech food, so items such as potato pancakes are often seen on menus.
The Czech Republic is almost entirely surrounded by mountains, except towards Austria and Slovakia. They even mark a natural border with Germany and Poland. This means travellers are treated to breathtaking natural views on a journey through this country.
Along with great cities and towns sitting on the banks of the rivers, there are also wonderful natural landscapes, including white cliffs on the Elbe.
