Tovačov Ponds

The ponds have a long history, the tradition of fish farming in the Tovačov region dates back to 1464. Today there are four ponds: the Hradecký, Křenovský, Kolečko and Náklo ponds. The largest of them is the Hradecký Pond, located north of Tovačov. The Hradecký Pond is divided into four parts by internal dykes, which you can walk along and enjoy the view of the water surface. Every year, in mid-October, the very popular ceremonial catches are held here. By the Kolečko pond and along the road to the Hradecky pond you will find old oak alleys, some oaks are more than 100 years old. The ponds are also an important ornithological site. They are a refuge for many water birds, which either nest here or use them as a refreshment stop.
