Cruising the Morava River
The Morava River flows through the bottomland forests of the Litovelské Pomoraví region. It’s mostly calm and slow. People were wise enough not to shackle its banks, so it overflows freely in the forests when the water level rises up, and transforms its trough wildly. The river cuts off the banks, cuts down trees, buries their trunks under layers of gravel and sometimes even changes the direction of the flow. In summer, the lonely corners of the river have a special beauty that smells like mud. On the banks fly steel-blue damseflies, heron rises behind the bend of the river and if you are attentive, you can see a blue flash of a kingfisher flying away in front of you. And then the ubiquitous beavers. Each family carefully protects their territory and their work is clearly visible around the river. The beavers dig deep lodges in the banks, care for their gardens, and trample paths and slides along the river. The river and its inhabitants always surprise you by something.
