The pond Vajgar


It was created in marshland at the confluence of Hamerský potok and the Nežárka. The first report on the pond and the bridge between Small and Large Vajgar is from 1399, when Heřman and Jan jr. of Hradec founded the Hospital of St. Elisabeth. Vajgar used to be called Large, Town or Castle Pond; it did not receive the name Vajgar (from the German Weiher) until the end of the 17th century. It belonged to the lords of the manor and nothing was permitted without their approval. The current stone bridge was built in 1830. The island is artificial and was built in 1858 – 1860. In those years winters were severe and the ice was very thick. After fishing at the beginning of winter, they hammered in oak poles along the perimeter of the future island and when the re-watered pond froze, they transported soil by manorial teams of sleighs into the paling, until they filled an island. It was immediately planted with trees and bushes, whose roots ensure the island’s compactness. At the place where the island was built, the depth had been 2 – 3 metres.
