The Klimkówka Lake
Klimkówka Lake, an alternative not only for sunbathers.
Also known as the Klimkówka Lagoon or the Klimkowskie Lake, it is a dam reservoir created on the Ropa river, located approx. 18 km from the town of Gorlice. It is considered to be one of the most attractive and charming artificial reservoirs in the Carpathian Mountains. The lake is relatively large, 25 meters deep, 300-400 meters wide and 2.5-4 kilometres long. Due to the sandy shore, the place is very popular in summer among sunbathers and water sports enthusiasts. There are even summer houses and campsites in the area, and in the lagoon you can rent water tourism equipment (pedalos, canoes, boats). In autumn, the lake delights with a panorama of the colourful Gorlice Pieniny reflecting in the water, which makes an extraordinary impression especially at sunset and dynamic autumn skies. There are also bicycle paths in the area. By the way, it is worth visiting the centre of the village of Klimkówka, where there is a brick church.
