The Prague City Hall will buy a plot of land in Troja (Prague 8), necessary for the construction of a new water sports park.
The park will be designed for both professional athletes and general public. It will feature a tribune for 1,500 spectators, and an equipment rental facility (canoes, kayaks, paddles, life jackets, wetsuits).
The length of the new water slalom track will be about 270 m.
The Vltava River is perfect and flows against a beautiful backdrop, whereas the Troja Cana is inundated with water all year round and is perfect for water sports.
The park will be designed primarily for sports training in water slalom, rafting, and kayaking. However, it will also be possible to host world championships or world cup races.
According to earlier information, costs are expected to rise to around CZK 150 million. It is not yet clear when the complex will be built.
Water sports are a big part of the attraction of Prague, especially in the summer months.
There are numerous places in the city of Prague like rivers, lakes, water dams, and artificial water reservoirs, all of which offer superb opportunities for all kinds of water recreational sports.
