Prague is crossed by the course of the longest Czech river, the Vltava River, that flows into the Elbe together with which it leaves the Czech Republic, runs through Germany to empty into the North Sea.
The shortest distance between its banks is 40 m, the riverbed is the widest by the Sitkovsky weir (330 m) in the town centre.
Since the Vltava River runs through the most precious historical part of the town, visitors can use nine jetties where they can get on for a shorter or longer cruise during which explanation is provided by the guide or snack served, or just for an outing tour, trip to the ZOO etc.
