Photographer's Note

The Slezen pond is actually a former, abandoned course of the Bosut River (see map). Today, it is a partially controlled pond that consists of three parts:
1. Carp hatchery, 900 square meters
2. A canal or paradise for little ones, full of big prussian carp and carp up to 5 kg. The coast is arranged as a children's playground.
3. Great lake with an average depth of 5 meters, length 3 km and width about 200 meters. Many capital carp were caught in that lake and one of them even weighed 24 kg.
But pond is also a paradise for many birds and even herons (among them night herons, in Serbian "gak" - one can be seen in the foreground of photo in WS). Slezen is the local name for one species of duck - Mallard.
