Lipno Dam

The Lipno Dam (Czech: přehrada Lipno) is a dam and hydroelectric plant constructed along the Vltava River in the Czech Republic.

Due to frequent flooding and subsequent damage, the Vltava River in Southern Bohemia was problematic for Český Krumlov and other settlements situated on it. To harness the power of the river, and to prevent continued catastrophe, it was decided that a hydroelectric plant would be built high on the Vltava.[1] Preparatory work at the town of Lipno began in 1951. Construction on the dam began in 1952, and the dam was completed in 1960.

Treetop Walkaway Lipno

Treetop Walkway Lipno, unique in the whole country and first walkway of its kind in Czech Republic, welcomed its first visitor on 10th of July 2012. The Walkway is delicately incorporated into the landscape around Lipnolake and uniquely complements the Lipno region. It completes the offer of sport, educational and entertainment activities.

Educational and didactic elements that will enrich and broaden knowledge in the areas of nature, its protection and function of the forest are part of the Walkway. Not only for our small visitors, but also for those, who stayed young and haven’t lost their taste for adventure, there are three adventurous stations with rope elements located at the height of 24 meters.

The Walkway is finished by a 40 meter nonagon observation tower, with unique appearance not only thanks to its airy architecture, but also barrier-free access, type and method used for its construction.
