  • Take a cruise and enjoy fantastic views of the lake. Absolute must if you visit this beautiful region of Bieszczady mountains.  more »
  • It’s a good place to relax. It’s shocking that it is a man made lake though
  • Clean looking water. No rubbish around. Clay or rocky bottom, quite unpleasant, a lot of rocky beaches, but like in the mountains. It's nice to rent a boat and bounce somewhere to another beach or island without people. We enjoyed it.
