Skadar Lake

N 4216.318', E 197.396'

Our rating: 7.60
Overall rating:

The Skadar Lake is the largest lake in the Balkans, most of it belongs to Montenegro, and the smaller part belongs to Albania. In the Middle Ages there were trade routes on the lake and it played an important role in the economy. Nowdays here is a national park, large medieval cities turned into small villages and the main occupation of the inhabitants is fishing and tourists.

People come here to take a boat ride on the lake. The landscapes are stunning and you can meet a variety of unusual birds. On the map below, we indicated the main places where you can find people with boats. As a rule, tours start from Virpazar, where all touristic infrastructure is located, but we passed the dam and stopped near the Jezero restaurant. Here we were immediately catched by a guy with boat. We agreed on 3 hours for 96 euros per boat. The boat was normal, with a roof and a place for 8 guests. I give the prices here so you can understand that the normal price is 25 euro per hour. In the middle of the lake we had an opportunity to swim. Overall impression was great, it's a wonderful place.

Getting there: Unfortunately, if you have no car and don't live in Bar, then the best option will be an organized tour. But in this case you'll be in a boat with 40 other people, and it will be harder to feel the beauty of the place. Taxi from Budva costs about 30-40 euros, from Petrovac 25 euros. There are no direct buses from Budva, only from Bar. You can go to Sutomore and then change to the bus from Bar to Niksic or Pljevlja. You can also go to Bar and then take a local train to Virpazar.
