River Elbe at the Czech Republic
a really splendid river with very beautiful towns giving sometime the impression of Hanseatic cities that had been transferred to the south.

This waterway which connects big Czech cities like Melnik, Nymburk and Kolin with the metropolitan area of
Berlin and the Baltic Sea could be of great importance. But traffic has gone back for quite some time now. Ship convoys have great problems, especially between the confluence of Elbe with Moldau and Magdeburg, because of the unstable flow conditions.
