Historic Dams And Hydroeletric Power Stations

Dolina Bobru

In the vicinity of the Valley of Bobr are several dozen historic buildings. Among this group, a very interesting complex of old dams and hydropower stations. The river Bobr was also a factor in the development of settlement in this part of Lower Silesia. After the catastrophic floods in the region in 1888 and 1897, Professor Otto Intze developed a program of flood protection in the Sudety. At the beginning of the twentieth century dams and power stations were built in Lesna, Siedlęcin, Wrzeszczyn and the largest one in Pilchowice. Nowadays, some of the dams and power stations preserved the old historic character. They are partially open to the public and with the system of monumental hydropower dams and water rapids, they are a very unique monument of technology, in the scale of this part of Europe. This tour is designed for fans of the technology of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
