The boating and tourist center can be found in Týnec nad Sázavou near the river Sázava 30 km from Prague. Bisport offers rental of water equipment, accommodation, but also a pleasant sitting in Bistro & Cafe Story.
Týnec nad Sázavou has a very long history. Its name itself indicates that at the place where the Týnec Castle is located these days – on a high cliff above the river – there was a fortified settlement in the ancient times, the so-called Týnec (“enclosure” or “fortification” was “Týn” or “Týnec” in old Czech). There is a probable connection between the settlement and an old trade route leading from southern Bohemia through the town of Sázava and along the Kostelec Castle to Prague.
Původně gotický kostel ze 14. stol. byl v roce 1755 barokně upraven a doplněn o plochostropé kněžiště. V roce 1872 byla loď kostela opatřena současnou křížovou klenbou. Dnes farní kostel.
