Boating - today romance, once the hard calluses of our grandfathers. For centuries, the construction of the Orava mine has mainly considered construction timber (for the construction of Žilina, Bytča, Hričov, Trenčín and today's Budapest), but also hay, grain, ceramics, canvas, rocks, wooden shingles, prisms, boards, and even dismantled wooden houses. Goods were also transported on rafts from Poland - lead, copper but especially salt - in 1695 up to 16,000 tons were transported in this way.
