The highest dam in the current Poland built of natural stone.
Pilchowice Dam creates the artificial Pilchowice Lake.

At the beginning of the 20th century Pilchowice Dam was a great engineering accomplishment. It protects the flood-ridden localities along the Valley of the Bobr River.
There is much space around the dam perfect for walking, also for families with prams and pushchairs.
After the years of propaganda (the so-called recovered territories) we begin to accept the thought that the majority of the Lower Silesia was built by our predecessors. It is similar to the situation with Lviv – it was built by Poles.
