Port on the Baťa canal

The waterway was officially named Baťa Canal on May 1, 2002 with the participation of Tomáš Baťa Jr. and the popular name "Baťák" was renewed. The navigation route of the Baťa Canal begins at the Slovak port in Skalica and ends at the Czech port in Otrokovice. The diversity of the Baťa Canal is confirmed by its cross-border location, which connects two Slovak-Moravian regions full of rich history, beautiful culture and folklore.

At present, the Baťa canal is almost 60 km long. There are several ports and marinas along the whole river, which serve as facilities for tourists and at the same time offer tourist services. The Baťa canal leads partly along artificially built canal parts and partly along the Morava river.

There are 13 locks on the canal, which help to overcome the height difference of 18.6 m between Skalica and Otrokovice. The navigation depth of the canal is 1.5 m on average. Navigation chambers: Petrov, Strážnice II, Strážnice I, Vnorovy II, Vnorovy I, Veselí nad Moravou, Uherský Ostroh, Nedakonice, Kunovický les, Staré Město, Babice, Spytihněv, Huštěnovice.
