Tour Overview

Although a small country in the heart of Europe, the Czech Republic has a wealth of unspoilt riverside landscapes, attractive villages and romantic castles and palaces, many of which date back to the Middle Ages. Prague, the “Golden City” or the “City of Many Towers”, is the start and finish of this fascinating cruise and cycle combination on the Rivers Vltava and Elbe. It is a unique city, with much variety and many traditions; its Old Town is UNESCO listed. The MS Thurgau Florentina is moored close to Charles Bridge and is thus the ideal starting point for an exploration of this beautiful city.
