Riding That Train! A Locomotive Trip Down The Sázava Pacific

From Braník to Čerčany on a steam-powered locomotive.

A steam train runs from the Braník train station, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along the Sázava river. Nicknamed the Sázava Pacific, the route is known for its beautiful surroundings, including canyons.

The name was given to the route by the tramps that would hop on for the ride. The train also rides along the Gold River, where the tramps searched for gold. Here, you can still see the old, wooden cabins that the tramps lived in while they search for their riches.

The tramps named the route because the canyon was representative of the landscapes of the Wild West.

You can make an unconventional excursion to Posázaví – the area around the Sázava River – on the Sázava Pacific.  In Posázaví you can visit Týnec Castle and the nearby castle ruin of Zbořený Kostelec, see the Sázava Monastery, the Jemniště Chateau in Postupice, or head to the Hubertus Brewery in Kácov.

During the train journey, which has a buffet car with refreshments, you will pass through tunnels, cross several stone viaducts, and take in breathtaking views of the picturesque Sázava River canyon.

The total trip takes more than three hours to complete. However, there are plenty of beautiful views and history to appreciate along the way.
