Dam on the Łomnica River in Karpacz/u/Senior_chan_1640

The semi-circular dam on the Łomnica River was a magnificent feat of engineering, built to prevent another catastrophic flood like the one that occurred in 1897. The dam was a crucial component of the flood control program, which regulated the river's flow and mitigated the potential for damage. However, as time passed, stories began to circulate about strange occurrences and unexplained events surrounding the dam.

The stories started with reports of strange noises coming from the dam's overflows. People living nearby claimed to hear sounds of rushing water, even on days when the river's flow was minimal. At first, people wrote these reports off as the imaginings of people who lived in the shadow of the dam. But soon, more and more strange events began to take place.

One evening, a group of hikers who had been trekking the red trail that crossed the crown of the dam reported seeing a figure standing at the edge of the reservoir. The figure was tall, with a long, flowing cloak that seemed to billow in the wind. It stood perfectly still, staring out at the water. The hikers, spooked by the sight, hurried away and did not look back.

As word of the strange figure spread, more people came forward with their own tales of paranormal activity around the dam. Some reported seeing the figure standing on the crown of the dam, while others saw it walking along the riverbank. Some even claimed to have seen the figure moving underwater, its cloak streaming behind it like seaweed.

As the stories multiplied, people began to speculate about who or what the figure might be. Some suggested that it was the ghost of one of the workers who had died during the construction of the dam. Others believed that it was the spirit of an ancient water god who had taken up residence in the river.

Regardless of the cause, people in the area began to avoid the dam, fearing that they too might see the ghostly figure. Some even started to call the dam "the cursed dam" and refused to go near it. Despite the eerie stories, the dam continued to perform its vital function, regulating the river's flow and preventing floods.

Over time, the stories faded away, and the figure was seen less and less. Eventually, it became nothing more than a distant memory, a spooky legend that parents told their children around campfires. But even today, some people still claim to see the figure standing on the crown of the dam, staring out at the water with an inscrutable expression on its face.
