River description:
Smutná river is navigable at moderate higher water level, this occurs after heavy rains or after leading out of ponds. However, the navigation is slow, owing to often carrying over of boats for many trees laying in river-bed.
Smutná river springs in Vlašim Highlands in southern direction of town of Prčice in an altitude of 640 m. Its flow directs mostly to the south up to its mouth to Lužnice river in Bechyně.
