Much more often tourists on this side of the river visit the more northern and centrally located district of Lesser Town with Prague Castle and other important sights.

The fastest way to get to Smichov is by metro (subway), you get off at the station “Andel” and you are in the middle of the Prague district Smichov.

Best seller: Boat tour Prague with dinner (buffet)

It is perhaps the most popular tour in Prague. A 3-hour boat trip in the evening on the Vltava River with great buffet dinner included.
