Orientation to Vltava River Flowing thru Prague, Czech Republic

The best way to get oriented to Prague is by a sightseeing cruise along the Vltava. This series of five photos provides a riverside tour of the city’s historic core traveling north to south. Vltava is the country’s largest river at 267 miles. There are 18 bridges spanning the 19 miles of river flowing through Prague. In the distance is the Čechův Bridge (Čechův most). Built in 1908, this Art Nouveau bridge connects to the Prague Jewish Quarter (Josefov) in the distant right. Next to it is the Mánes Bridge (Mánesův most) leading to the Concert Hall (Rudolfinum) within Old Town. Along the bridge’s 610 foot span is the Walk of Fame. This is a growing number of brass stars with names of famous Czech composers.
