The beginning of boat tourism in Hungary
In the picturesque Verkhnetis region, a new form of recreation is starting to develop - resort boat tourism. Waterways are designated, the construction of marinas and the purchase of 20 vessels are planned.
In western countries, such as France or England, traveling along rivers and canals in "floating houses" has long traditions and great demand. That is why the government decided to launch a similar program in Hungary.
The Verkhnetis and Bodrog regions are rural, where beautiful natural landscapes and tourist destinations can be attractive to the target audience.
Lake Tisza, Sárospatak, Tokai and even Szerencs - these routes, combined with the existing bicycle paths, can attract many visitors. 4-12 people will serve the ships, their speed will be up to 8 km. per hour and they can be managed without a special driver's license. When the infrastructure will be built and the service is running, it is quite possible that other service providers will appear in the area. Up to 150-200 boats can safely work on individual waterways.
