The Vltava river

Since first hearing as a kid the glorious evocative music Vltava by Smetana I've had visions of a beautiful river with sunny meadows, and I would love to see it. Not just at Prague, which must be one of Europe's finest capitals: the world heritage site Cesky Krumlov with its distinctive reddish roofs looks very pretty, and it's always a pleasure to explore rivers for a good distance.


"The Vltava (German: Moldau) is the longest river in the Czech Republic, running north from its source near the German border in Šumava through Český Krumlov, České Budějovice, and Prague, merging with the Elbe at Mělník.

It is 430 kilometres (270 mi) long and drains about 28,090 square kilometres (10,850 sq mi). At its confluence with the Elbe, the Vltava actually has more water than the Elbe and is even much longer, but it joins the Elbe at a right angle to its flow so that it appears to be a tributary. The river is crossed by 18 bridges (including the famous Charles Bridge) as it runs through Prague."
