Černé jezero

Local nameČerné jezero
LocationŽelezná Ruda, Czechia

Černé jezero in the Bohemian Forest is the largest and deepest natural lake in the Czech Republic.This triangular lake surrounded with spruce forest is located about 6 km northwest of Železná Ruda under a 300-metre-high cliff on Jezerní hora. It is of glacial origin, a product of the Würm glaciation. The water in the lake is oligotrophic. There is a natural outflow through Černý potok, a short stream which is a tributary of the Úhlava River. The main European water divide runs across the mountain just above the lake. As a consequence, Černé jezero belongs to the water basin of the Elbe, which finds the North Sea, while Čertovo jezero just 2 km away drains into the Danube and thence the Black Sea.

The oldest pumped-storage hydroelectric plant in the Czech Republic is located here; the lake serves as its upper reservoir.
