we are a non-profit organization called “The Morava river for Olomouc”. It was founded so we could fulfill our aim to start organizing the cruises on the Morava river in Olomouc. The Morava river flows through the historical center of Olomouc. It is possible to see many historical and dominant monuments from another perspective different to a regular pedestrian sightseeing tour. Since 2016, we also organize sightseeing tours in the historical center of Olomouc on our beer bike OLOPEDAL.
What else to say? A dock should be a busy place with a friendly atmosphere and our dock doesn’t make an exception. It is a place where concerts, theatre plays, workshops and other cultural events take place.
We are looking forward to meet you in person.
