Boat bike tours Czech Republic
If you think of the Czech Republic, probably only one place comes to mind: Prague. If the sun shines during your visit, you’ll find out why the Czech capital is known as “the Golden City” and “the City of a Hundred Spires” — it’s an amazing sight when the bridges over the Vltava River are ablaze with sunlight and the spires of Prague Castle gleam.
But you’d be wrong to think that Prague is all that this small country in the heart of Europe has to offer, and we’re ready to impress with boat bike tours through the Czech Republic. Starting and ending in Prague, these trips explore the wonderful landscapes, gorgeous villages and medieval castles along the Upper Moldova (Vltava in Czech) and Elbe rivers by bike and barge.
Cycle and cruise adventures on the Moldova and Elbe rivers
Your adventure begins just one kilometer away from Prague’s iconic Charles Bridge, cruising off on our ship, the Florentina, your floating hotel during your boat bike tour of the Czech Republic. Culture is the first priority, with your first cycle tour leading to the National Art Gallery and baroque castle of Troja, and the following days taking you to the Nelahozeves renaissance castle, and the royal town of Litoměřice, encircled by Gothic fortifications.
The rest of the trip is similarly full of mysterious ruins and regal residences, panoramic river valley vistas, romantic towns, and relaxing bike tours through pleasant countryside as you slowly make your way back towards Prague.
Prague — full circle on your boat bike tour Czech Republic
It’s definitely worth planning in time before and after your boat bike tour through the Czech Republic to properly explore Prague and its UNESCO-listed Old Town. Stroll through its marvelously-restored Old Town Square, pass time under the Astronomical Clock and the Tyn Church, meander through the expanses of Wenceslas Square, admire the Clementinium housing the National Library and millions of books, or explore the Jewish quarter.
We’ll be on hand to help with recommendations and here’s one more — the local specialties of pilsener beer and roast pork with dumplings are to die for, and vegetarians can also delight in dumpling dishes with devilishly delicious creamy mushroom sauces.
