  • In sunny weather you can find such a perspective where water at coast Emerald, and the thicker-turquoise! The Lake is very soothing: you can go on boat trips (from station to station), you can drive around the Lake along the way. There are shops with a good selection of souvenirs. Our cruise groups had lunch overlooking the Lake. At the beginning of the route all photographed gold statue of a girl, a symbol of the Lake (it at all souvenirs!)))
