DISAPPEARING LAKES

Czchowskie and Roznowskie are two artificial lakes created along the river Dunajec in southern Poland. For decades served as a popular vacation spot for millions of Poles that were not allowed to travel abroad or who after opening the boarders in 1989 simply could not afford to so.

 

Golden 70s and 80s, when many had their summer house by the shore, seem to be gone now once the lakes undergo a erosive process of natural silting. Yet many people have their lives tied to the place. Despite the fact that local authorities have invested heavily in its regeneration, the perspectives for the place aren’t too optimistic.
