Mavrovo Lake, Mavrovo

4.1
#3 of 11 in Things to do in Polog Region
Set within the peaceful landscape of a national park, Mavrovo Lake provides a prime spot for walking, fishing, boating, and swimming. The largest artificial lake in Macedonia is surrounded by chains of mountain ridges, snowcapped peaks, and wide green highlands. Notice the church in the middle of the lake, half-submerged in the water, which was flooded when the manmade lake was built to supply a power plant. The waters are rich with trout, which you can order off the menu from many hotels, villas, and restaurants nearby.

  • In an emotional trip, Mavrovo, the family lore is important. In addition, of course, a wonderful natural environment, in contrast to a large dammed Lake formed artificially. The Lake is above sea level is 1200 meters above sea level.
