The ship's production was financially supported by the Moravian-Silesian Region. It has a home port in Leskovec nad Moravicí.
SANTA MARIA ship
As though it was taken from the time of Christopher Columbus, the Santa Maria ship is a replica of an old wooden sailing ship and is intended for small groups or irreparable romantics. This was the first ship to provide official sightseeing cruises on the Slezská Harta dam.
It's designed for a maximum of 10 people + crew and offers a particularly popular hour-long cruise around the dam with an interesting explanation of the surrounding attractions and the fate of the flooded villages. It's possible to rent this ship for private journeys, celebrations, etc. The transport of live animals, bicycles and prams is unfortunately excluded. This ship first looked upon the water surface in 2010 and has its home port in Leskovec nad Moravicí.
