Site description A stream-fed freshwater lake (1,680 ha) situated south of the town of Bulanýk. Extensive meadows (still hand-cut) adjoin the lake; marshes are found to the south and south-west. The lake is surrounded by hills, except in the south and east where it borders the Kazan and Tohmanik plains. Limited fishing activities take place; water is used for irrigation.
Key Biodiversity Important for breeding wildfowl. It is highly likely that the available information severely underestimates the importance of this IBA.
