One of the fascinating wonders of the Czech Republic

The upper reservoir of the Dlouhe strane pumped-storage hydroelectric power plant is a man-made lake, which is the highest body of water in the Czech Republic. It reaches a maximum depth of 26 m. As the power plant site is located within a protected landscape area, the entire operation is located underground for environmental reasons. The main task of the power plant is to ensure the stability of the electricity system, for which a balance between current consumption and the output supplied by energy sources is necessary.

On the other side of the upper reservoir there is refreshments and the possibility of renting scooters. If you don't want to make the way back on foot. You can make your way down to Kouty nad Desnou more pleasant by downhill on scooters.

Be careful when riding scooters. The descent is along the road and you can collide with a car or bus.
