Why locals love it

An old stone quarry which was closed and filled with water, Zakrzowek now offers a turquoise oasis almost right in the city center.

Why you should visit it

Closed for swimming, there are paths around the lake and hiking trails in a nearby park. You can even take scuba diving lessons here as the water is 30 meters deep and the school has permission for diving.

Special tip

Karol Wojtyla worked here during World War II.
