Two gravel-pits, two worlds
Men and birds live there together in symbiosis within relatively small area. They live there despite there goes gravel mining operation. The two lakes were created as a result of mining in the Morava river that goes even in the present. The bigger gravel pit to the north is popular among fishermen and people seeking leisure here.
