Lake of Viennese count Shenborn-Bukheim is to be restored by its the historic anniversary - 285 years since the donation of Transcarpathian lands to Franz Lothar Schoenborn by the Emperor of Austria.

Recall that now the historical heritage is being recovered in Perechyn district as well as one of the seven man-made lakes of Schönborn. Its contours are reminiscent of Austria-Hungary map in 1867. Currently important preparatory steps have been held, so there is every hope that these works come to an end in September 2013, and currently the lake-pond is cleaned and is being filled with water from mountain streams, contours of historical boundaries are enhanced, part of the island is formed, which has stones brought from the Dalmatian Adriatic, and old water mill is renovated.
