“one of the oldest lakes in Třeboň region”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

This Opatovice pond is one of the oldest lakes in region Třeboň and is situated on the left bank of the Zlatá stoka. This Lake is primarily intended for fish farming and sport (swimming). It has a surface of approximately 160 ha, length 2 km, the dam is 1,177 km long, with 1.92 million m³ water, its average depth is approximately 1.5 to 2.5 meters and is located at an altitude of 436 meters. In the middle of the pond a small island with trees, habitat of waterfowl. On the northern outskirts a resort called “Třeboňský Ráj” with small beaches, another beach in Doubí-Oboře, near Opatovice mill with stables and yard. For the inflow of water are responsible both Zlatá stoka and Opatovice mill, then flows into ponds Ruda and Jamský, River and pond Hůrky, the streams of Branské Dubina and two small creeks of on the West Bank. Both medieval ponds (Opatovický and Svět) were founded 1367, in 1510-1518 expanded and merged (Štěpán Netolický and later Jakub Krčín,who tried, without any success, a link with neighbouring Svět pond, both ponds were soon split). 1707 The dam was built along the Opatovický lake and Zlatá stoka where in present times a historic Mill building stands near the newly renovated baroque chapel. “Anděla strážce” (guardian angel) monument commemorates the tragic accident of Třeboň coach and archdean, Abbot of Augustinian convent, which was later moved to the park between St. Giles Church and Schwarzenberg Sepulchre Chapel.
