The Amazon is one of the greatest natural phenomena on the Earth. This greatest and longest river of our planet springs high in the Peruvian Andes in an altitude of over 16,400 feet. The river basin, spanning almost 3 million square miles, represents more than 40 percent of the total area of the South American continent. Initially, the river forces its way through mountain valleys and changes its name many times before it spills out into the never ending space of the Amazon jungle.Venture along with Vladimir and Kamila Šimek onto a long sail along the Amazon.
