The CMP Canoe Trip 2013 was canncelled due to bad weather.


Prof. Vašek Hlaváč and CMP PhD student Čeněk Albl and Libor Wagner would like to invite you to a traditional canoe trip. The river of choice is Vltava. As usually, we will depart from Prague on Friday May 31 in the late afternoon and arrive back on Sunday June 2 late afternoon or early evening. We will arrange transport both on the ground and the river, life jacket if requested and place to stay overnight. Up to you is to bring tent and other camping gear. You are also welcome to bring your partners and children.



The date is set on 31 of May - 2 of June 2013


The Vltava river is the longest Czech river. It springs in the wooded hills of the Sumava National Park and after having run 430 kilometres, near the town of Melnik, it joins the Labe river.

The route from Vyssi Brod to Borsov offers great view of the nature and medieval architecture. The trip can be enriched with visits to the Cistercian monastery in Vyssi Brod, medieval castles in Rozmberk or Cesky Krumlov, the monastery in Zlata Koruna or the ruins of Divci Kamen.

Here are some interesting links with maps:
