Slavic ships "Dragomira" and "Triglav"


The "Dragomira" is not the first replica of a Slavic ship, but it is the first Slavic boat to be built in the country and to sail the waters of Brandenburg and the Havel. Sixteen students began construction of the Slavic ship “Dragomira as part of a youth training project on 1 September 2000. As the basic form of the oldest shipbuilding, three dugout canoes initially appeared, a large dugout canoe with a length of five meters and two more about four meters long. Oak trunks were stripped of bark and hollowed out using ancient craft techniques, and paddles made. Then the actual construction of the Slavic boat began in the manner of a plank boat. The Slavic plank boat "Dragomira" was completed in April 2003, was certified and than launched in May 2003. The naming took place on 23 May 2003 in the presence of representatives of the city of Brandenburg an der Havel, representatives from business and the employment authorities, and partners and supporters of the project. The "Dragomira" represents a compromise between the original shape of the model, traditional and new construction techniques, construction costs, safety requirements, functionality, and rational use. Thus, instead of the old common field stones, sand bags are used as ballast to improve the safety while sailing with visitors. Even the sail and rigging material correspond to modern standards. The "Dragomira" has a small, hidden motor built-in to enable more guests the opportunity to enjoy the Brandenburg Havel waters despite the many low bridges, and even in calm waters. On special occasions the Slavic ship Dragomira presents a little Slavic history throughout the city of Brandenburg and the Havelland, including the Havel, Harbour and Fischerjacobi festivals. Since 2009 the larger sister ship, the "Triglav" has sailed the waters of the Brandenburg Havel. The almost 14 meter long ship can accommodate 28 guests. It can be rented for group tours by visitors, clubs and families (with crew). Tours are also offered for special occasions. Guided tours provide two or three hour tours of the nature and history of the town of Brandenburg an der Havel from the water. Departure is from the jetty at the Slavic Village.
