Lake Jordán (Czech: Jordán) is a lake inside city Tábor. Built in 1492 it is the oldest dam on area of the Czech Republic. The lake was created by creating earth dam across the Košínský brook (Košínský potok, also known as Tismenice) with purpose to provide drinking water for town inhabitants. Later, it was used for aquaculture and in modern era as a place of recreation. Levee of the lake is 18 metres high, the area is 50 ha, it contains around 3 millions of m3 of water, deepest point is 12.5 metres below surface. Jordánský brook (Jordánský potok) outflows from the pond, with 18 metres high Jordánský waterfall (Jordánský vodopád) just after the levee. In short distance upstream on Košínský brook, next to hamlet Náchod, lies a smaller dam named Small Jordán (Malý Jordán). In 1991 a road bridge has been built over the pond. The bridge is suspended on single pylon of height 77 m. Length of the bridge is 208.5 m, and it stays 10.5 m above water surface. The bridge became new dominant of the city.
