  • Skadar Lake is very beautiful and unusual, but we have to go there yourself and visit small villages and churches, but no need to take an excursion, there kinds of uninteresting, boring, treat brandy and pryganicami with honey, you can swim right from the ship, but the water is very cold and a few brave souls nahoditsch, we were French, so they bathed. After dinner treat, but fried trout was nasty. Recommend to visit independently, uninteresting.

  • Very beautiful place! Water framed by mountains, you can enjoy the lilies. The Lake is home to over 200 species of birds, but see them while traveling on a boat is unlikely-they live in remote areas. Clean beach, convenient entry into the water. On the shores of Nice fish restaurant, where you can try local carp

  • We have seen the Lake borders Montenegro and Albania, the views are simply unusual, long road cost, if the sail to the Lake by the Podgorica, the Lake seems to swamp, a vast expanse of water from a height.
