After leaving the centre of Prague, we will cycle along the Vltava River. We will see how the Czechs make up for the lack of the sea using the river. We will pass through small and medium sized towns as well as crossing bridges and parks.
We will leave Vltava river to join the cycling path along the Berounka river, much smaller and equally charming. The banks of river Berounka are perfect places to host several cottages and green areas where the Czechs from the capital like to take refuge at the weekend. We might as well join them bathing in the clean and refreshing water of the river. Since this is a classic route for locals along the way we’ll find numerous pubs and refreshing areas of all kinds.
The cycling path along the Berounka river will bring us straight at the doors of the imposing castle of Karlstejn, built by the great monarch Charles IV to protect the crown jewels, the state archives and library from the fury of the Hussites. Here we will enjoy a fresh beer admiring the majestic silhouette before we get the first morning train to Prague.
