In the past, the oldest and largest paddle wheel steamship on the Vltava river has also been named after president T. G. Masaryk. It was first launched on May 1, 1938, and it was used for passenger transport to Vrané nad Vltavou and later to Štěchovice as well. The first significant reconstruction transformed the ship into a restaurant boat. The second reconstruction, which took place last year, gave it back its original character. During the festival days, you have a unique opportunity to join the owners on a commented tour and explore the ship’s lounges, the steering room, as well as the engine room with the original steam engine.
