Mavrovo Lake, Mavrovo

4.0
#6 of 11 in Nature in Republic of Macedonia
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.

    We come here on an August day, everything seems desert and around the Lake, its shores earthy, not moving human being. The view is spectacular, the perched villages around the mountains too. Not suitable for swimming or sunning area to sunbathe.

    Wonderful lake in the heart of the National Park Mavrovo. Nestled in the mountains this lake is a natural wonder, clean and suitable for swimming.
