Description :
Shaping the Little Vistula Valley allowed economic use to be made of it by the early Middle Ages. At first, this took the form of the constructing of many mill streams, but then the system of fish ponds characteristic of the Valley landscape to this day was also put in place (in the 16th-17th centuries). Numerous floods regularly devastated the ponds, and the receding of floodwaters was followed by the rebuilding of ponds. This brought significant changes in the landscape of the valley.
