The Lake Skadar is the biggest lake on the Balkans. Located on the Zetsko-Skadar valley, the lake keeps its connection with the Adriatic sea thanks to the river Bojana. Lake is crypto depression which means that most of its part is under the sea water level.
It represents paradise for birds, as it provides a home for 264 bird species, and it is the only habitat of the pelicans in south Europe. In 1983 the lake was proclamed a national park.
Skadar lake was inscribed on the World list of wetlands of international importance (RAMSAR) in 1995.
It is an ecological kingdom, an oasis of tranquility and close encounters with untouched nature.
Lake is full of islands and peninsulas on which one can find traces of history and valuable cultural heritage.
In Lake Skadar exist Bleak and Carp, two species of fish that can not be found anywhere else in the World.
