Used for shipping freight for more than a thousand years, this river still features many river cruise paddle steamers that have been in operation since the eighteen hundreds. The source of the Elbe River begins in the awe inspiring Giant Mountains. The Vltava River, also a very popular cruising river, merges with the Elbe taking the traveler through the capitol city of Prague. The architecture of Prague is stunning, and the gothic wonder of the Charles Bridge full of bustling trades and beautiful sculptures, is truly a sight to behold.

Sections of the Vltava River have been dammed to create lakes along the way and offer endless opportunities for abundant sight seeing, fishing, rafting, and even hiking in the picturesque national parks. There are dozens of restaurants featuring local foods, beers (especially Pilsner), and a delightful array of wines, as well as beach combing, antique shops and cycling.
