Description

The Klauzy Water Reservoir near Smižany has its extraordinary charm. It is located in the beautiful surroundings of the Slovak Paradise National Park, surrounded by local hills and dense forests. Its charming, even romantic atmosphere enchants you in every season.

The water reservoir has a relatively long and varied history. It was built on the site of the Belá stream in 1781 for the purpose of wood rafting.
