The lake, formerly known as Lake Machów, was created in 2009, in a process of reclamation, by inundating excavations left behind by the open-pit sulphur mine once operating here
A great attraction for tourists and enthusiasts of water sports, the lake comprises an area of 455 hectares, and at times reaches the depth of 42 metres, being the fourth deepest artificial lake in Poland. Those into sunbathing can enjoy a 100 metre wide beach along the lake. The place also hosts a festival of sailing songs called Nowy Brzeg – Nowa Fala (New Shore – New Wave).
