In 1938 the region faced the biggest change in terms of its appearance. After the dam construction at Podselo the channels of Soča and Idrijca were over flown with water. The result was a creation of a 7km long reservoir lake and thus Most na Soči was turned into the area by the lake. Well maintained lake banks invite the day strollers to an exhibition of artworks made at the traditional fine-arts summer school.
