The Small Pond is the second largest and most picturesque pond in the Sudeten Mountains. The lake is at the height of 1,183 m above sea level, has an area of 2.9 ha and is about 7 meters deep. Its clean water is facilitated by Monotus lacutris - inhabits a relict of the Ice Age. The cauldron of the Small Pond is located in the central part of the Giant Mountains, at the foot of the coupling scheme [Równia pod Śnieżką] and the Southberg [Smogornia] (1,489 m above sea level). Its 200 m high slopes with some rocky gorges run directly into the little pond. In the near Little Pond is located a cottage called Samotnia.
In winter, the cauldron of the Small Pond is a dangerous place because of the snow falling down.
