Černá Nisa Bedřichov – the highest situated dam in the Czech Republic
The Bedřichov Dam lies in the Jizera Mountains at a height of 775 metres above sea level. It is an attractive site for both tourists and nature lovers.
The dam was built from 1902 – 1906 and has since become an integral part of the surrounding landscape. There are many walking routes along the dam’s shores and locals love swimming in the 15m deep clean reservoir. The location has also become popular among nudists.
The highest dam in Czechia faces very demanding climatic conditions and recently had to undergo a major renovation. Last year, the reconstruction was completed. The surface of the dam is made of granite cubes, a material that is typical for the local Jizera Mountain range. The decorative granite blocks that line the crown of the causeway and the railings have also been restored. The hiking trails, which were partially closed for repairs during the past 5 years, have been reopened.
