The "Small" and the "Big Lake" have different heights. They are connected by a brick channel. Due to the differences in altitude, the water flows from the Great Lake at a high flow rate into the Small Lake. This is an event for the bathers. They can be drifted from the Big Lake to the Little Lake like in an accelerator. Both lakes used to be freshwater lakes. After the monks built their monastery on the island in the Great Lake and found that they had to fight with mosquitoes and Malariamücken, they created a connection to the sea. The lakes have since been saltwater lakes and much warmer than the Mediterranean, which encloses the island of Mjlet.
