Discovering Slovakia: Liptovska Mara Dam

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, Košice or other road trips in the Liptov region (Bešeňová, Lúčky, Hrabovo, Vlkolínec, Pribylina…). It was built to help control the flow of river Vah, which is the longest river in Slovakia. Construction of the dam began in 1969 and it took six years. Inhabitants of 13 villages were relocated and their villages are now under water. In addition, there is a hydropower plant of 198 MW generating electricity since 1975.

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 zastavím pokochať pohľadom na jazero na ceste z Tatier, Jasnej, Košíc alebo aj počas výletov po Liptove a okolí (Bešeňová, Lúčky, Hrabovo, Vlkolínec, Pribylina…). Prečerpávacia vodná elektráreň na Liptovskej Mare funguje od roku 1975 a má kapacitu 198 MW. Ročne generuje 134,5 GWh elektrickej energie.
