[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The earliest documents in which Morskie Oko is mentioned date back to 1575.
In 1637, the Polish king Władysław IV granted Wladyslaw Nowobilski the right to use the pastures adjoining the area.
In 1824, Morskie Oko became private property when Zakopane estate, including Dolina Rybiego Potoku, were purchased from Austrian authorities by Emanuel Homolacs.
At the end of the nineteenth century, a boundary dispute arose between Galicia and Hungary over property rights to the lake and adjoining area (the so-called Morskie Oko dispute). The Court of Conciliation in Graz ruled in favor of the Poles; this event is credited to Oswald Balzer, who represented the Galicia government.
