The Schwarzenberg Canal - the Šumava Mountains make history
The deep forests of the Bohemian Forest hold a secret wonder of the world - the Schwarzenberg Canal.
For a long time he lived an existence in secret. Only in 1990, after the fall of the Iron Curtain, did he move into the focus of the new Europe, becoming accessible in its entirety to tourists and visitors. In the summer months, cultural events and well-attended Schauschwemmen take place along the canal:
