Prague Jazz Boat


Prague at Dusk

A Prague Jazz Boat Cruise sounded like a touristy evening, but I decided to book it anyway to experience the city by night from the Vltava River. Scenery during the three-hour cruise was magnificent and the music and meal were great.

I shared a table with an Israeli couple, Gurami and Shira, who were visiting Prague to celebrate their twelfth wedding anniversary, and a young Swiss flight attendant, Stewart, who was in Prague for the first time. They were fun and good company and we enjoyed talking and sharing travel experiences.

Jazz Trio

The trio – saxophone, drums, and bass – played several sets and were very good. The British sax player provided hilarious narrative making everyone laugh. It was incredibly beautiful seeing Prague from the Vltava at night – a shining jewel!

This is my last week in Prague. I’ll be leaving May 29th for a several weeks in Rome and have pre-booked a few activities, including a day-long group bike tour around major sites. Not being much of a cyclist, it will be interesting to see how I hold up. The bikes are full-suspension electronic so guess that’s cheating a bit ;o) but I can use a boost!

One thought on “Prague Jazz Boat

  1. I never learned to ride a bicycle (the measure of a extremely deprived childhood :-) ) and despite several attempts, have never mastered it as an adult. So that cuts me out of a lot of interesting looking tours. I’ll be fascinated to hear how it works in Rome. Happy travelling!
