Vlata River, Prague

The Vlata River flows through the centre of Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic, and is the waterway around which the city has developed over the past one thousand years. On the one side of the river one finds the Old Town and the New Town, whilst on the other bank lies the Lesser Town and the Prague Castle.

Vlata River played a fundamental role in the foundation of Prague. It provided vital water for drinking and crop irrigation and a means of navigation for both the early settlements establishing along its banks and for travellers on the early trade routes between Southern and Northern Europe, which passed through the area. Vlata River is the longest river of the central European country.
