Prague Embankment

NAPLAVKA – Prague Embankment


Today I would like to walk with you throughout Prague Embankment, and why do I choose it? Because Prague Embankment continues to be irreplaceable and vital for the life of the capital city.

NAPLAVKA – Prague Embankment – Everyone comes into its own

On the embankment, you encounter with greenery, the luxurious mansions and also with a number of representative public buildings. You can perfectly spend your free time, it hosts cultural, sporting, gastronomic and other actions. Despite the hustle, however, here it can be found a magical place, where no one will disturb you … It takes just a little searching 😉

Unforgettable moments …

The embankment has an indescribable atmosphere that you have to understand, you just have to experience it. ..

It’s been about 4 years since we walked along the Rašín Embankment. To this day, I can even exactly remember the moment and imagine everything again …

It was a warm May evening, and although we were in the busiest part of the centre, I had the feeling, that is amazingly calm around and people are perfectly tuned … Definitely worthy was the company in which I appeared 🙂 According to me is the threshold to enjoy Prague by the side of someone close, then it’s the only way I can perceive it with all my heart …

During the walks, we heard a pleasant music. I bent down to the waterfront and saw a nice summer garden with benches, and a live band. We settled down and through the trees before me it appeared a breathtaking view of the Vltava River with floating boats. Moreover with a fascinating panoramic view of the Hradčany. Even now, when I’m writing these lines, I’m feeling in the belly a special tickle. I feel a strange nostalgia which pushes tears to my eyes. At that time, it was strong experience and even today I can live in memories completely to the fullest … I know that at that moment some feeling stayed inside me that now I’m really incredibly happy …

So let’s go …

NAPLAVKA – Prague Embankment is a great choice even if you just don’t want to go to the most attractive places of the historical centre of Prague. Do you want to know why? Because the most remarkable landmarks are around you … 🙂

If you want to sail on the Vltava River, definitely worth is to go to the Dvořák Embankment. It serves as a starting place for passenger transportation. And here is a wonderful view of the panorama of Hradčany. The dominant feature is the building of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, together with the Convent of Saint Agnes.

Probably the most peaceful embankment is the Ludvík Svoboda Embankment. On it, we find the building of the Ministry of Transport and a path for pedestrians and cyclists.
