Mavrovo Lake, Mavrovo

(4.3/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Lovely lake but the water levels are very low at the moment We went to see the submerged church but sadly it wasn't submerged at all, its stands proudly some 200 meters from the nearest water  more »
  • In January, between the mountains completely covered with snow, this sheet of ice is something amazing to watch. Absolutely natural spectacle. Full equipped hotel for the summer season.
