We have a lot of very pleasant memories connected with Vltava River.
Many times we walked along its embankments enjoying the architectural beauty of nearby buildings. Besides, several times we enjoyed relaxing in the shadow of trees on the islet located opposite the National Theatre.
Once we found ourselves on the embankment during breathtaking sunset after the rain.
In the “Photos of Prague” section you can view plenty of photos we took on Vltava River embankment.
Apart from amazingly beautiful views, Vltava offers a few types of entertainment.
In a warm season you can rent a catamaran right near the islet opposite the National Theatre. Along the embankment you can see several boats converted into restaurants.
And of course you can choose sightseeing from the Vltava River on a river boat. But as for boat trips, that’s another story for another time.
One of the most unusual buildings on Vltava River embankment is Dancing House.
The Dancing House is a work of non-traditional architecture making a striking contrast to the neighbouring classic style houses.
The Dancing House was built in 1994-1996 and Václav Havel, the Czech ex-president, supported this project. Today the building is home to different offices and to one of the city’s restaurants on the top floor that offers impressive views of Vltava River. The only way to enter the Dancing House is to attend the restaurant.
After sightseeing we returned to the hotel and in the evening we went to the Slavia café and had wonderful supper. The Old Town of Prague (Stare Mesto) was waiting for us the next day.
