Mavrovo Lake, Mavrovo
(4.4/5 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.

  • Beautiful lake, good hikes and amazing views and drives. The submerged church is very special and a must see. 
  • A beautiful Lake. In summer you can swim and sunbathe, enjoy nature in winter. By the end of the summer the water subsides and you'll be close to the Church of St. Nicholas, which is "left" under water after construction of the Platinum.

  • A modest pond without any special interest. It is simply an artificial lake in the mountains. In the region there are restaurants where you can sit someone for food.
