Dam of Rozkoš

In the beginning of the 19th century there were still 748 artificial lakes in the Nové Město Manor. The biggest of them was Rozkoš. Its surface had 141 hectares. It had a short, solid dam, which held a big amount of water. In 1834 it was drained and only a brook, bearing the same name, remained. In 1966 to 1972 there was built a dam of considerably bigger size.
