Nove Mlyny Water Reservoirs
Nove Mlyny water reservoirs are the largest man-made lakes in Moravia. The complex of three lakes separated by dams was completed in 1988, just one year before the fall of Communism and it has become one of the last symbols of the regime's building capacity. The middle lake flooded the former village of Musov with only the Romanesque church remaining on a tiny island. These days the reservoirs attract kiters, windsurfers and anglers, and they are a great place for a relaxed family ride as well.
Though located at the foot of Palava Hills, the lakes are very shallow and the surrounding terrain is almost completely flat. Along the shoreline there are dedicated bike paths combined with unpaved paths in the total length of more than 40 kilometers. The area is easily accessible by bike from Mikulov, which is some 10 km south of the lakes.
