Discovering Slovakia: Liptovska Mara

Liptovská Mara is the third largest dam in Slovakia. Located in the Liptov region, it is my favourite stop on the way from High Tatras, Jasna, or other road trips in the Liptov region (Bešeňová, Lúčky, Hrabovo, Vlkolínec, Pribylina…). It was built to help control the flow of river Vah, the longest river in Slovakia. Construction began in 1969 and took six years. Inhabitants of 13 villages were relocated and their villages are now under water. In addition, a hydropower plant of 198 MW is also a part of the dam.

Liptovská Mara je treťou najväčšou priehradou na Slovensku. Súčasťou priehrady, ktorú na Váhu postavili v rokoch 1969-1975 ako povodňovú ochranu a zatopili pritom 13 dedín, je aj väčšia vodná elektráreň. Ja sa tu pravidelne zastavujem pokochať pohľadom na jazero na ceste z Tatier, Jasnej alebo aj počas výletov po Liptove a okolí (Bešeňová, LúčkyHrabovoVlkolínec, Pribylina…).
