The dam in Solina


The dam in Solina is a concept for the development of the San valley, which was created in 1955 under the leadership of Eng. Bolesław Kozłowski, although the first works on the creation of this facility were carried out in the 1930s. The construction of the dam was started in 1960 and it was put into operation in 1968. During the filling of the water reservoir, five villages and a large part of Wołkowyja were flooded. It is the highest dam in Poland, 664 m long and 81.8 m high. The reservoir has an area of approximately 22 km² and the largest capacity in Poland, 472 million m³, and its maximum depth is 60 m. Below the dam, there is a 200 MW hydroelectric power plant. The dam is frequently visited by tourists, especially since you can also visit the interior of both the dam and the power plant.
