It has been 105 years since disaster of “unsinkable“ Titanic, surely the most famous maritime disasters. Ondřej Vrkoč met with this iconic story for the first time before twenty years. "I saw a color photo of the Titanic in magazine and children's imagination began to work hard," looks back with a smile now almost twenty four years old Ondřej Vrkoč. And when his parents allowed him to watch Oscar-winning film directed by James Cameron, everything was decided. Adventurous dreams began to revolve just around the phenomenon of Titanic. And it continues to this day.

Construction of the new TITANIIC ship
Goal of the TITANIIC project is to build a modern version of the legendary ship RMS Titanic. The new TITANIIC ship is a successor of the famous ship and it preserves especially external shapes, equipment and cabins of the first and second classes. Third class cabins are inspired by the trends of the 21st century, it preserves the orginal retro design and at the same time it is equipped with innovative technologies.
