To make matters worse, the popular Nadějská pond system is located near Lomnice nad Lužnicí. It consists of ponds with poetic names such as Love, Hope, Faith, Deed, Blaník, Soft, Spotted, Rod or Pleased, the individual bodies of water are often separated from each other only by dikes. The system was started by Jakub Krčín, who built only three ponds - Naděje, Potěšil and Skutek. The others are the work of Josef Šusta and were created in the 19th century.
