Historical rafting in Cesky Krumlov
Our company has been operating historical wooden rafting since 2004. We try to continue the tradition that has existed here for centuries. The first raftsmen appeared on the Vltava river in the Middle Ages. Due to the absence of railways and impenetrable terrain, river navigation was the easiest way to transport wood and other raw materials, such as salt. Tree trunks traveled from Sumava mountains to Prague, or even further. In the upper course, due to the width of the riverbed, the trunks sailed individually. Subsequently, they were tied together in the so-called moorings, which was also in the town of Cesky Krumlov. From this moment on, we can talk about wooden rafts as we know them.
The company Historical rafting Cesky Krumlov offers a unique sightseeing cruise on the model of a historical wooden raft. During the voyage, you will learn interesting things about wooden rafting, but also about Cesky Krumlov.
In less than 20 years of wooden rafting, we have had the honor of sailing several important clients. It is worth mentioning, for example, British actress Rosamund Pike, who also appeared alongside James Bond in Die Another Day. Another VIP was the most known Czech singer Karel Gott, who celebrated his 66th birthday on the Vltava river. The South Bohemian Philharmonic Orchestra, which played Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi on the wooden raft, also showed our trust. Last but not least, we had the opportunity to ride ambassadors or employees of the embassies of the USA, Japan or Greece.
