The Vacaresti lake is a man-made lake, within the city of Bucharest, close to the east periphery. It was supposed to be a part of the hydrological protection system, in case of flood: it was meant to hold the water of the Dambovita river in case the latter swelled and overflowed. The works for this lake started in 1986, and the Monastery of Vacaresti as well as the houses of around 100 people were seized by the regime and had to be demolished to make way for this huge basin.
