The water surface of the dam in Domaša is increasing thanks to rainy weather and regulations. Locals believe next year's season will meet their expectations.

“I really believe that it will help that there will be enough water in spring in Domaša and that the operation during the whole season will be successful,” said mayor of Kvakovce village, Radovan Kapraľ, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

High hopes for next season

He said that the mayors of the surrounding villages have great plans for the future, not just involving the new boat Bohemia, which during the summer season will carry out about 180 sailings and transport 21,000 people.

The plan has been approved by the government to build a floating promenade with a quay for water sports.

Despite the after-season interest in sailing, they have to prepare the boat for winter early because of the low water surface. Currently, it is partly located in a dry place.
