The Vltava River, which the Lipno Dam as mentioned is constructed alongside, was a problem in the Czech Republic because there were frequent flooding and other smaller catastrophes. Because of this the Czech Republic decided to build a hydroelectric plant on the river. A hydroelectric plant creates electricity through the gravitational force of falling and flowing water and also works as a dam. This is a very effective way of creating low-cost electricity. This set the creation of the Lipno Dam in motion and in 1952 the Dam had started being built. It took 8 years and was finished in 1960.
