16 km southwest of the city of Chrudim is the Seč dam reservoir built on the Chrudimka river. It is a large recreational area that also serves as protection against floods and for water supply purposes.

Dam dam

The water reservoir is held back by a 42-meter-high brick dam with a length of 165 meters. It was built between 1925 and 1934 from granite blocks. A road runs along the crown of the 6.8 meter wide embankment.

One of the largest isolated islands in the Czech Republic is located on the dam lake. It is a popular destination for excursionists on boats and paddle boats, who head there mainly for the nice sandy beach.

The ruins of the Oheb castle

On the right bank, on a high rock wall, the freely accessible vast ruins of the Oheb castle rise. The torso of the entrance gate, cellars, tower and castle palace has been preserved to this day. The ruin is quite extensive and there are beautiful views from it.
