The charm of the Sazava river was already told about in the last article. Now board a boat with us for we have a 2-day boat ride ahead of us. We start off at Horka II camp and sail down to Cesky Sternberk. This section is quite tranquil with an occasional weir or two. The stretches you need to do in a day are quite long especially because of long distances between camps and snack bars. You can ride there on a canoe even in the occasion of lower water level.
The Sazava is sought after by many paddlers. Should you hear somebody saying anything about riding the Golden River, he certainly talks about the Sazava. The alternate name for the river comes from its brown-yellowish color created by clay releasing from the riverbed. The upper stream of the Szava is the Struzny creek. It feeds Velke Darko the largest pond of the Bohemian Moravian Highlands. This pond is a popular vacation place and the center of windsurfing and dragon boats.

Danube-river is an European river, and the whole river is navigated by watermen, who prefer calm and quick stream, not difficult rapids, from springs up to Danube delta mouth. Danube-river forms on its flow, spontaneously or artificially, various shoulders, the nearest of these are for us Mosoni Duna (Hungarian shoulder) and Small Danube in Slovakia.
Why not to go to Poland ? In past, we went there for shopping. The excursions to the seashores were effected seldom, anyway, it has its magic. But, frankly speaking, who prefers Baltic sea which is too cold ? The times are changing, so more excursions with paddles appear. First, we discovered lakes area which are Mazury Lakes in north eastern part of the country.
