  • You might like to sail through the country's capital, Prague, and visit its UNESCO World Heritage-listed castle, before passing through the vineyards of the wine-growing region of Melnik and snaking along the River Elbe.

A few stops along the way

Rental of licence-free barges on rivers and canals of Czech Republic André Breton referred to Prague as the 'magical capital of Europe'. Indeed, prior to becoming the capital of the Czech Republic it was successively the capital of the Holy Roman Germanic Empire, the capital of the kingdom of Bohemia and the capital of Czechoslovakia.
The City of a Thousand Towers and of a Thousand Spires, miraculously spared the destruction of World War II, is now a showcase of the pre-Roman, Roman, Gothic, Baroque, Rococo, Art Nouveau and even Cubist styles.

The crucial river port town of Melnik is over a thousand years old and has become famous for its castle and its 14th-Century wine cellar, where visitors can sample the wines produced from the castle's vineyards.

Having travelled through the vineyards of the Elbe Valley you will arrive in Uusti nad laben, the cradle of the Premyslid dynasty that founded the kingdom of Bohemia.

Podebrady, renowned for its 13th-Century castle, is also a spa town, its waters believed to be particularly effective in treating cardiovascular conditions.

The fine sandy beaches and clear waters of its dam have made Slapy a popular holiday resort among the people of Prague and the town also boasts many historical and architectural monuments, as indeed do many Czech towns and cities.
