A new water reservoir created by filling a former brown coal mine has officially opened in North Bohemia, near the town of Most. With a surface of over 300 hectares, Lake Most is the Czech Republic's largest pit lake to date. The project, which cost some CZK 2.5 billion, took nearly 12 years to complete.
