Brno, Mar 31 (BD) – This year marks the 73rd boating season. DPMB will also have an open day for the boat transport area (“Areál Lodní dopravy”), which provide services for transport in Brno’s lake.

The 2019 boating season starts at 10 AM on April 13, at the harbor in Bystrc. The event will start with an opening ceremony for the captains. There will be a boat for a short sightseeing cruise departing at 10:45 AM, and the first regular public transport ferry of the season will depart at 11:30 AM.

The open day for the boat transport area will take place from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

The Brno Lake is a large water reservoir of 2.59 km². The place is great for hiking and cycling. The area around the lake boasts beaches, fairground-like sideshows, and sport boat hire places. The lake also hosts ferry trips to Veveří Castle. Read more about how to reach Brno Lake in our previous story, “Sailing Season at Brno Lake Started – Newly Also for the Small Motor Boats”.
