The Baťa Canal is an extraordinary water route constructed in the late 1930s. It is situated in southeast Moravia between the cities of Kroměříž and Hodonín , in the Czech Republic .

A Little Bit of History

The Baťa Canal was created for the purposes of freight traffic. It was being constructed in 1935-1938. It was originally used for transporting lignite from the Ratíškovice mines, which were owned by the Baťa company, which is famous all around the world today.

The Present

Currently the Baťa Canal is used for recreation. Some parts of the canal go through the Morava river while in some locations canal sections have been artificially dug. The Baťa Canal is 53 km long. The average depth of the canal is 1,5 m and the width reaches 12 m. 50 bridges have been built over this water route. The traffic on the Baťa Canal is regulated by the set of rules of the canal locks (13 sluices) . It is possible to go down the canal with quite a big boat or to rent a small one in a boat rental. There are 8 boat rentals on the canal. Everyone over 18 who goes through a short training can rent a boat and set off for a trip on the canal. The official season on the Baťa Canal begins on 1st May and ends on 28th October. But when the weather allows, the canal operates also out of season. There are several cyclist paths along the Baťa Canal.
