Zakrzówek is an artificial water reservoir located in the Dębniki district of Krakow. It is surrounded by white, limestone rocks and a green forest. It is said that the landscapes here are so beautiful that they resemble Croatian Dalmatia. The reservoir, or actually two reservoirs connected by an isthmus, was built in 1990, when the no longer used limestone quarry was flooded. The depth reaches 32 m. The surrounding limestone rocks are called Twardowski Rocks. Legend has it that it was here that Twardowski conducted his magical experiments. You can climb the rocks.
An interesting fact is that during the Second World War, Karol Wojtyła worked in the quarry located here. In memory of the Pope, a plaque was sunk under the water. It is not the only thing that can be seen while diving in Zakrzówek, there were sunk there, among others, a Polish Fiat 126p, a bus and a van. The diving base has been created here by the Kraken Diving Center. Swimming in the lagoon is forbidden, but it is worth coming here for a walk, fishing or just a lazy rest by the water - the views are really beautiful, and the lagoon is surrounded by clearings and walking and cycling paths. There is also a reserve "Skały Twardowskiego" nearby.
