Lake Malta (Maltański Reservoir) is an artificial lake in the city of Poznan, Poland. It was created in 1952 as a result of the damming of the Cybina River. It is one of the city's most well-known lakes. It stretches for 2.2km and has an average deepness of 3.1 metres. The lake is used for recreational activities such as rowing in the warmer months and skiing and ice skating in the colder winter months. The lake is surrounded by woodland and parkland which makes it a great area for exploration. The lake gets its name due to it being the area where the Knights Hospitaller settled.
The lake is situated just on the edge of the city centre, it is within walking distance of the Old Town area. The 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 17 trams all stop at the ‘Baraniaka’ stop which is next to the lake; the 57 and 84 buses also stop there.

You can visit the lake for free at any time of any day, although it is best for safety to visit during daylight hours.
