Strbske Pleso Lake of Love

2 ratings
A place made for lovers. Why such a name? For its romance and coziness, especially during sunny summer days, the benches by the lakes were often occupied by couples, avoiding the bustling large Štrbské plies. If you cross the bridges between the lakes, you will reach a path that leads to a complex of former spas, where many new couples in love have sprung up. Even in this way, these lakes came to be called the Lake of Love.

So kiss your half for good luck at this place.
If you are not in love at the moment, wish for it and your request will be fulfilled within a year.
And now the facts.
These were originally two ponds, built at the end of the 19th century by the former landowner, Count Jozef Szentiványi, who kept trout here for his restaurants. The larger one has a diameter of about 50 m and a max. depth of 3.5 m, less than 25 m with a depth of 1.5 m. The Mlynica stream, which flows in close proximity to the lakes, ensures constant flow through the bullets. In the past, there was also a fishmonger's hunting lodge.
An unusual attraction lying in the water of a larger lake is a concrete slab measuring 30 x 40 cm with the Slovak emblem depicted and the date 1940. Old memorials say that this slab was removed from the standing Slovak double cross in the settlement and hidden in the pond from the communists who wanted it. destroyed after World War II.
