Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
The Devil’s Channel, also called ‘Little Prague Venice’, is a water channel situated in Prague. The cruise seems like a journey straight out of a fairy tale. The channel is fed by the River Vltava, and, after around 900 meters, it flows right back into the river. The Order of the Knights of Malta is said to have built the Devil’s Channel in the 12th Century, dividing the Kampa Island from the Mala Strana. The channel was originally a millrace. Dating back to the 9th Century, the Prague Castle has been the central complex of the city. No other castle of this era is as complex and intricate as this one, making it one of the most visited tourist destinations in Prague. It is interesting to note that the president himself runs the country from his office in the Prague Castle. The Charles Bridge holds a diverse range of statues depicting patron saints originally erected during the late 17th century and early 18th century. The statues were replaced by replicas in 1965, and the originals were placed as exhibits in the National Museum. The St. Nicholas Church sits snugly in the center of this part of the city. The Baroque architecture of Mala Strana is stunningly beautiful, all of which you can admire on your cruise.
As you cruise through the Devil’s Channel, the view of the Prague Castle above the Vltava River will be the first architectural marvel, you witness. The Grand Priority Mill followed by the magnificent Charles Bridge is included in the package. The journey ends with the view of the small bridge situated at the pillars of the Charles Bridge. A calm blankets the route while the 12th-century vibe of the city constantly reminds you of the medieval architects’ incredible vision. The murmur of the medieval mill wheel will take you right back to the age of knights, castles, and crusades. Surrounded by beautiful medieval homes that seem to emerge right out of the channel, this cruise is an unforgettable experience for anyone who wants to spend a silent, relaxing time with their partner or family.

What a beautiful cruise! I booked these tickets from Headout and I was not disappointed with this experience. Some of the sights on this cruise are very scenic and I really enjoyed the quaint and rustic experience
Cruising on the Devil's Channel is way better than the Vltava river. The boats are less crowded and we really liked the medieval side of Prague.
There's plenty to see here and some of these things I've never seen before. Really thrilled to experience this and I'm pretty sure I'll visit again.
