The Sava River significantly contributed to the development of Radeče
The Sava River has always significantly contributed to the development of communities on its banks. It used to be an important transport route for a variety of merchandise, but especially lively was the timber trade, which was transported from the Upper Savinja Valley by river rafts - flosi (derived from German, where das Floß stands for the timber raft) - all the way to the Black Sea. One of the main timber rafting ports on the Sava River was Radeče.
Cruise with the Radeče rafters
On a two-and-a-half-hour raft cruise, you will be able to listen to rafters' adventures and mishaps. What dangers threatened them along the way and with what mischievous habits they tried to ignore their daily troubles. Through storytelling, music and dance, you will get to experience how timber rafting looked like in the past.
You will also not leave the timber raft hungry, as you will be served a delicious rafters' goulash.
At the end, a real rafter's initiation awaits you. It is a humorous custom of accepting newbies among experienced flossers.
Welcome aboard Radeče timber raft!
