A young boy, Huck, and a black slave, Jim, spend most of the novel on a raft travelling down the Mississippi River, the second largest river in the USA.
“It’s lovely to live on a raft. We had the sky, up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them,” reads the 1885 book by American novelist Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Tourists can go on a similar adventure on the Dunajec River in northeast Slovakia, which serves as a borderline between Poland and Slovakia. The Dunajec was also used for timber rafting in the past.
Listen to the latest episode:
The peaceful raft journey is, indeed, a great way to relax. Some even manage to take a nap. Hop in our raft and find out more about life on the Dunajec in this week's episode.
Today, adventurers can enjoy views of a beautiful valley and intriguing stories about monks and Jánošík, a national hero to some, told by professional rafters wearing traditional clothing.
