Lake Skadar National Park - Montenegro
Updated: Nov 25, 2020
The lake is located in Zeta – Skadar valley and is surrounded by mountains, and it’s 7 km away from the Adriatic Sea.
Two-thirds of Skadar Lake is in Montenegro, and the rest is in Albania. The size of the lake varies from 530 to 370 km2 it is 44 km long and 14 km wide.
The coastline is mountainous, especially on the north-west side.
We visited in the off-season (so the main entrance was closed) and to be honest; it's already starting to get pretty polluted with plastic waste.
Skadar Lake is the largest lake at the Balkan Peninsula, with freshwater and one of the largest national parks in Montenegro.
It’s incredibly famous for its diversity of flora and fauna.
