a wonderful Balkan lake

Lake Scutari is the definitive seal of the great beauty of Montenegro. It is the largest of the Balkan peninsula with a surface varying from 600 square kilometers of the winter period to around 370 of the summer season. A unique habitat with a rich flora and fauna, ideal for lovers of green tourism and birdwatchers (herons, cormorants, pelicans, etc.). Moreover, it is a very fishy lake, so much so that the villages all around still take an important part of their livelihood from fishing for eels, trout, carp, pike and so on.

Scutari, of course, deserves a lot also from a landscape point of view. Along the way (part of the lake is in Albanian territory) there are several small islands, the most famous of which is without a doubt Beska. This comma of land houses an ancient monastery that, after centuries of abandonment, was again populated by Orthodox nuns.

Not far from the municipality of Virpazar, famous for the Friday market, and Rijeka Crnojevica in which Ivan Crnojevic (hence the name of the town) repaired before the final landing in Cetinje. In short, nature, history, culture, food and wine (there are beautiful vineyards) and the possibility of many outdoor activities (mountain biking above all): Lake Scutari really does not lack anything for an unforgettable holiday outdoors. Without forgetting another decisive aspect: the Adriatic coast, with its long beaches, is about 50 kilometers (from Virpazar to Ulcinj).
