TOURING BY WATER
In the 1930s, a project of irrigation canal was worked
out because of impassability of the Morava river /water in the river often
declined and consequently did the level of underwater/.Jan
Bata also dreamed about a canal Dunaj-Odra-Labe. In May 1938, a project of
building of a small
canal according to the Dutch model was made. Building started on October 16,
1934 and finished in the autumn 1938 in the section Otrokovice-Rohatec.
Proposing depth was 1.50m. This water way along the canal was determined for
loading transportation of „lignit“ from the Ratiskovice mines to the power
station in Otrokovice. Nowadays, the canal works fully in its lengh of 65km
including 13 chambers, a water cable, landing places and a tippler. There
are also a couple of boat-houses and the canal is used for mild water
tourism. /see front page of the map/.
