Abstract: In the past few years, the transport infrastructure of Sudan radically changed. New roads, transport hubs, or means of transport have a signifi cant imprint on the culture of travelling, and many of the older institutions connected with the phenomenon, are being placed in the past. One of those dying out phenomena is ferry crossing on the Nile. It wasn’t long time ago that ferry was the basic mean of transport throughout riverine area of Sudan. It was the way of transporting people and goods, both along the river and across it. Today, because of the new era of modern motorways and bridges, its time is coming to the end. Th is is, of course, a pity, since its function was going way beyond its basic transport meaning. What can we learn about Sudan culture from the perspective of Nile ferry – is the fundamental question I shall give the answer to. In the presentation, I’m referring to the fi eld observations made in Northern Sudan in a village of ed Ghaddar in 2013.
