At the timber-rafting quay in Gortina, one of the two tourist-oriented timber-rafting locations on the River Drava in Koroška, raftsmen continue the one-hundred-year-old timber-rafting tradition of the hardy people in the Drava Valley.
Timber rafting was an important industry of the 20th
century in the Drava Valley. Raftsmen were drifting downriver all the way to
the cities of today's Hungary, Serbia, and Romania. You can get the genuine
feel of the past by going on a safe tour with exact replicas of old timber
rafts. The organisers provide authentic culinary delights, as well as
entertainment and music.
