Podolí Embankment

Podolí Embankment

The Podolí Embankment starts in Braník district, part of Prague 4, and joins Rašínovo Embankment by the tunnel under Vyšehrad.

Two major features that distinguish the embankment are the waterworks in Podolí that that back to 1882 and the marina that you can see in the main picture. It is used namely for small boats and yachts, the big boats are to be found at Rašínovo Embankment and by Čechův Bridge at Dvořák Embankment. When the water in the Vltava river is too high the boats find refuge in a similar marina across the Vltava river in Smíchov.
