Embankment by the lake

Embankment by the lake

Lakes Szeląg Wielki and Szeląg Mały once constituted one reservoir.

It was only the construction of the railway, which was carried out in the years 1871-1873, that forced large changes in the surrounding area, and above all the execution of a huge embankment. A high causeway was built across the lake, and there was a tunnel going through it, that’s also where the canal was made. The canal was built by French prisoners after losing France in the war with Prussia (1870-1871). Today it is called The Warminski Channel allowing to swim from Lake Szeląg Mały to Lake Szeląg Wielki. It is the only navigation tunnel in Poland.
