Surrounding the largest lake in the Balkans, offers lush mountainous scenery and picturesque villages, and is one of Europe's most important wetland bird reserves.

  • Perfect place to get away from it all, enjoy adventure and activities. Warm people and lots of nice wineries! 
  • My wife and I were in September 2016 onwards. Unfortunately, the weather was a bit cloudy, occasionally vyglâdyvalo Sun, once passed the rain. Found in the dam before the Bridge House fisherman Zoran. I already read about it somewhere on the Internet. Very friendly guy. Well spoke Russian. Agreed on a boat trip on the 2:00. As skipper was his son-Raiko. Zoran warned that we will see many birds, but pelicans-only in the case of a large fortune. Pelicans we never saw, but as human beings, are reasonable to bring someone to claim about this do not even think. The Lake has proved to be extraordinarily beautiful. Happy beauty indescribable. Filmed on video and did a lot of pictures. But the effect of the stay on the Lake at any video pass! This is a must see with your own eyes. I am preparing for a trip, read a lot of reviews, among which was something like: "no beautiful", "nothing remarkable, and even simply" overgrown with grass swamp. " Arriving at the Lake all the time was ready to begin it disappointed. But, to my delight, no matter what happens. His wife was delighted by what he saw. Huge water surface, bordered by mountains, thickets of water lilies and lilies, pure water, the abundance of birds-what more do you want? Proplavov 2:00 seemed little, inquire for another hour, passed on an open part of the Lake, saw the distant Albanian shore, the ruins of the monastery gate. At the end of the journey surprisingly clean and bathed with warm water. After boating Zoran invited us to enjoy freshly prepared dishes from the fish they caught. Everything was incredibly delicious and inexpensive. Tired, but happy we went in the opposite way. I believe that arrive in Montenegro and not see the Skadar Lake is a very big omission.

  • Were on Skadar Lake in September 2016. It was a long road to the town of Tivat. Beautiful mountain lake. But the Lake was already a bud, a tour of the water began to take. In General, you can visit the pleasant impression, but not sunk down into the soul of this place.
