Riviera offers extension to Prague for Danube cruises: Travel Weekly
Riviera River Cruises allows customers cruising the Danube to add a Prague visit to their itinerary. The option will be available for certain cruises in 2022.
The seven-night cruise begins in Budapest and heads west to Linz, Austria, and back. After the cruise, guests will travel through the Czech countryside to Prague, “The City of a Hundred Spiers”.
During a stop in Brno en route, you will visit the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul with its high spiers, the medieval Spilberk Castle or the Old Town Hall dating back to 1240.
