Travel Tip: Dalesice Dam, the deepest dam in the Czech Republic

Dear Steemit friends and followers,

Welcome to my Travel Tip series where I promote some of the most beautiful places, interesting landmarks and impressive architectural sites of my homeland, the Czech Republic.

Today, I will take you to one of the most impressive natural places of the country, the picturesque Dalesice Dam.

Located near the town of Trebic in the Vysocina Region of the country, the Dalesice Dam is a huge water reservoir that was built on the Jihlava River between 1970 and 1978.

With a maximum depth of 85.5 m (280.5 ft), it is the deepest dam in the country and it also boasts one of the tallest dam embankments in Central Europe. The Dalesice Dam was originally built to provide water for the nearby Dalesice Nuclear Plant but because of its beautiful natural surroundings, it soon became a popular tourist destination too.

There are many great hiking trails and bike lanes leading through deep forests around the dam and visitors can also choose from a variety of hotels and camps situated very close to the water. There are several well-maintained beaches where people can enjoy wild swimming. The dam is also home to numerous animal species (especially water birds) which will be certainly appreciated by wildlife enthusiasts.

I'm really really happy to see your country is in rich in dams.
To be very honest It's one of the most beautiful dams I have ever seen.

Sadly Pakistani Pakistan is running short of water by 2025, but no one is thinking to build A dam, Government is corrupt, This thing worry us all :(

I am afraid that the water shortage is a world phenomenon that is only getting worse.... We really need to start taking care of our planet without any delay, otherwise, our next generations will be in trouble.....

But no one thinks the way we are thinking :) and we don't have power to do anything :(

beautiful landscapes, it seems like your country has many places that can be a tourist destination, a good promotion @czechglobalhosts, continued success.

There really is something for everybody! Great country to visit:)....

it is a beautiful natural scenery in your country, if there is a chance I want to visit your country

Just do it, don´t even think about it:)...

It is great for us you post the most beautiful places of your country. You gives us different idea about photography. You are also briliant in capturing the shoots.

Is it really a dam? Don't you kidding me!
I think it's naturally built Canal who is there to reserve water for the citizens of #czechrepublic. Look at the greenery, It is just outstanding

Beautiful nature. Your collection is so nice. Thanks, @czechglobalhosts

It is very very nice I would love to go there one day

I love your humility and the way you let us know the beauty of your country. Mother Earth is wonderful. Thank you. Infinite blessings.

A great place and surrounded by mountains makes it more attractive. It is obvious to have tourists over there because of the rich beauty of that place.

We also have a dam which is a great tourist attraction and a picnic spot, it is known as RAWAL DAM.

I remembered the series lost!!

Wow, it is wonderful to see.

Wow such a beautiful dam and a perfect spot for outing. Generally the dam is not a place for picnic, but this one has got attention of visitors and is doing great. A fantastic travel tip by you!!

Wish u journey mercy

Beautiful place, I think I'm in love with the Czech Republic :)
Good promotion .. Greetings
