back to top

Zemplinska Sirava is the 12th biggest lake in Europe which is very suitable for recreational activities such as swimming, water sports, fishing etc. A part of the water surface represents a natural reservation which is important for birds moving from one place to another.

Zemplinska sirava is:
  • 11 km long
  • 3.5 km wide
  • the coverage of surface is 30 - 33 km2
  • average depth is 9.5 m
  • maximum depth is 14 m


  • New research work discovered a possibility of geothermal wells below the bottom of Zemplinska Sirava. The temperature of those wells could be about 60 - 80 degrees of Celzius. The use of them could positively influence the lenght of season in Zemplinska Sirada and attract more and more visitors and tourists. It could also contribute to better expoitation of accommodation facilities in the area.
