PRAGUE BOATS Make the Riverbanks Greener
PRAGUE BOATS pontoons planted with trees improve the micro-climate in their vicinity.
Due to urban development and insufficient greenery in the streets, Prague’s city centre shows significantly higher temperatures than the city’s surrounding areas. Asphalt and concrete don’t have the ability to utilise the sunrays they collect and transform them into chemical or other types of energy like taller plants can. This is why the PRAGUE BOATS company plants mature woody plants on their new boarding piers—pontoons, thus contributing to improvements in micro-climate of the surrounding area through photosynthesis.
This year, PRAGUE BOATS planted a “green” pontoon on the Dvořák Embankment (pier no. 0), where their glassed-in boat, the Grand Bohemia docks, and most frequently hosts the Lunch Cruises and Prague Grand Cruises, as well as private events for their clients.
It has been the company’s long-term effort to make sure that PRAGUE BOATS is an eco-friendly company: it invests in modernising its fleet, replacing engines, and it eliminated single-use plastics on its cruises in 2018.
