Visitors have been able to enjoy cruises on the Brno reservoir since 1946, when boat services were commenced, and they have continued without interruption ever since. The exception was 2009, when the reservoir was completely drained for maintenance.
The fleet of vessels on the reservoir consists of 6 boats – the Leipzig, Utrecht, Dallas, Vienna, and Stuttgart (all with Czech versions of the names), all modern double-deck vessels from 2010-2012, and the historic boat Brno from 1949, even though it was rebuilt twice.
There are regular departures on the route Bystrc – Rokle – Castle Veveří – Veverská Bítýška and back.
Tickets can be purchased at the Bystrc port or on board the ship.
“Mobile tickets” are also available, which combine a cruise boat and a visit to, for example, Veveří Castle, the Brno Zoo, Špilberk Castle, the Permonium amusement park, and the VIDA science park. And you don't even have to complete both in one day, since the ticket is valid for the entire boating season.
In addition to the regular schedule, you can also rent one of the boats for private purposes, eg. for celebrations or a business party.
