Vltava Cycling Trail: Kamýk nad Vltavou - Prague

Quite a long trail full of interesting places and beautiful views of the Vltava River.

In Kamýk nad Vltavou you can visit the Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary. The church was mentioned as early as in 1350, but burnt down at the end of the 18th century, only the sacristy has been preserved. The present church was rebuilt and consecrated 12 years after the fire. The interior is decorated with a fresco of the Apparitions of the Virgin Mary and Czech patrons to the peasant people.

Less than a kilometer from the church, just opposite the route, you can climb the Vrškamýk lookout tower. And just 300 m away, you will find the castle ruins of the same name.

In Dražkov you can see the Museum of Váchův Špejchar. If you are lucky, there will be an exhibition.

Coffee and homemade cakes in the private castle of Radíč will recharge your battery. The castle is also magical thanks to the adjacent Baroque gardens.

In Nová Živohošť, you will board a steamer, which crosses the Vltava River to Stará Živohošť at 10:40, 14:40 and 17:10. See current timetable.

You can refresh yourself in Davle again. A very interesting monument is the Island of St. Kilián at the confluence of the Vltava and Sázava with the Ostrov monastery, founded in 999 by Prince Boleslav II. However, it is not possible to get there on land, you need a boat.

The route continues through the beautiful valley along the quietly flowing Vltava River to Zbraslav, where the stage ends.
