The original river-basin of the Morava river with its meanders and the rest of its blind branches is really unique. There are flood-plain forests with ash, oak and alder trees and swamp meadows, too. Unwooded sandy garbled heaps around railways are protected. In the park, you can see birds like stork, egret, kingfisher, sand martin, peewit, etc., along the river there live also muskrat, beaver and rarely otter.

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.

At Sudomerice, a terminal port with a lignite reloading-place, a so-called tippler, and a work-siding connection to the railway station of Rohatec were built. At the tippler, a wagon with lignite was lifted on one side and the lignite was tipped out onto the available boats. The Canal was designed for freight boats with the tonnage of 150 tons and draught 1,20 m; the designed boat dimensions were 38 x 5,05 m. Today, the tippler is a technical monument, you can find a boathouse and refreshment here.
