Castles

Czorsztyn Lake

Czorsztyn Lake is a beautiful artificial lake located at the foot of the Pieniny, between Niedzica and Czorsztyn. Very scenic location makes it a favourite stop for tourists wandering through the Pieniny range. Czorsztyn artificial lake was formed by damming the Dunajec river, after the construction of the dam in Niedzica. The basic objectives of building the reservoir were protection against flood and fire, but thanks to the creation of the lake, the attractiveness of the region has been significantly raised. In the summer season, cruise ships run on the Czorsztyn Lake, making it easy to know the beautiful surroundings. Beyond the attraction itself, they make it easy for tourists to move between medieval castles standing on the shores of the lake – Dunajec castle in Niedzica and the ruins of the castle in Czorsztyn. Under the walls of both fortress, special harbours for ships were created.
