Will you be in Prague on Saturday and thinking about how to spend an afternoon when there is no Prague Pride parade? We call you on a rainbow cruise on the Vltava, and if you prefer to stay on your feet on solid ground, come to picnic to Pride Village.

Střelecký island lies on the route of the historically first voyage of pride, which will clear the waters of the Vltava. So come with friends to Pride Village, relax on a blanket or in the grass and wave the passing boats Prague Pride. You will hear the boats from a distance and when they appear in front of you, you will see a lot of rainbow, beautiful drag queens, warm lifeguards and simply a real pride atmosphere, which is so important to us this year due to coronavirus remote. Take a selfie with the boat in the background - Instagram potential high!

Střelecký Island is one of the best places where you can enjoy Saturday in peace and with a drink in hand. Stop by the Prague Pride information stand, where you can buy festival merch, browse the NGO market at the tip of the island. Bring your own food, picnic blankets and drinks. About musical accompaniment our Jukebox will take care of it, in which you can choose which song you want.
