River description:
This river springs in Křemešnická Highlands in easter direction of Věžnice in an altitude of 590m. It flows in northwestern direction through meadow open valley and mouths into Sázava river from its left side, near the town of Havlíčkův Brod. Its river basin makes 265 km². The river bed turns throughout countryside surrounded by local forests, the stream is moderate, you can meet unpleasant places in overgrown sections only. We recommend to check first some weirs on route.
The navigability of Šlapanka river can be judged on spot. It is navigable at moderately higher water level. The water register in Mírovka shows 85 cm, ths presents also the favourable water stand on upper Sázava section. However, the navigation is slow, owing to unclear situation of river bed and a necessity of carrying over of boats across fallen and overgrown places.
Suitable accommodation can be found in Havlíčkův Brod.
