Enjoy a relaxing cruise on the Vltava River to the famous Prague Zoo where you can meet its many different animals. A great day out for the whole family!
After meeting at Křižovnické Náměstí Square next to the iconic Charles Bridge, you'll catch a tram to the nearby dock, from which your boat trip on the Vltava River will depart.
Throughout the cruise, which lasts around an hour and a half, an English-speaking guide will fill you in on interesting facts about the history of the different monuments that you'll pass along the way, including Prague Castle. You'll also be able to enjoy free soft drinks and coffee.
Once you've arrived at the dock in Troja, your guide will accompany you on the short 10 minute walk to the main entrance of Prague Zoo. There, you'll be given your entrance tickets, a map of the zoo, and your bus tickets for the return to Prague city centre.
You'll then have the rest of the day free to explore the zoo at your own pace. Rated amongst the top five zoos in the world, its many distinct areas house a variety of different animals: from giraffes to tigers and elephants to penguins... there's even a sightseeing train to take you around the zoo if your feet get tired!
