Český Krumlov Camp

It is one of many stops for the watermen flowing on the famous Vltava River. A part of the Vltava River between Vyšší Brod and Boršč nad Vltavou is the most frequent stretch used by watermen in the Czech Republic (and apparently in Europe, too). This part of the low section of the Vltava River is highly popular not only because of the fast flow rate with frequent rapids, but also a romantic landscape with a number of cultural monuments (Vyšší Brod, Rožmberk Castle, Český Krumlov, etc.) as well as the maintenance of the permanent minimum flow rate in the Lipno I water reservoir. On average, 1000 to 1500 boats a day flow through this section during the season. After overcoming the weirs in Český Krumlov, the water tourists may discover the beauty of the Blanský Forest Valley. They can also look forward to seeing the rock massifs and rich vegetation on the next kilometers of their journey.
