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.
