“Quaint Rivercrafts flotilla” History
In 1973, a group of lads having a beer decided to pass away boredom by floating on the Vltava River from Vyšší Brod to Rožmberk. However, as none of them wanted to use water-beds and lilos, an idea originated to build quant rivercrafts. The first “Quant Rivercrafts Flotilla” saw only two vessels float from Vyšší Brod to Rožmberk, with chance viewers turning their heads in disbelief. This idea, nonetheless, gradually gained its fans, resulting in the eventual number of 50-60 quaint monsters on the Vltava River with 120 – 140 participants on board. The tradition of this event has remained alive to this day.
