Mavrovo Lake, Mavrovo

4.3
#6 of 11 in Nature in Republic of Macedonia
Water Body Nature / Park
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.

  • Very nice lake in the mountains. Have a look at the sunken church at the end of the lake. We came in spring and it was lightly snowing. Very nice.  more »

  • Beautiful lake, good hikes and amazing views and drives. The submerged church is very special and a must see.  more »
