It was the lands near Lake Skadar that the Slavs, the ancestors of modern Montenegrins, chose for settlements more than a thousand years ago. The cultural heritage of the first Slavic states on this territory, Duklja, Zeta, is sacredly revered by the Montenegrin people. Testifying to a rich past, numerous Orthodox monasteries and churches are located along the coast of Lake Skadar and on its rocky islands. Shrines, combined with stunning views of the lake, hidden in a spacious bed between high mountains, create a unique atmosphere.
The status of a national reserve has allowed the largest lake in the Balkans to preserve the richness of the ecosystem intact. You can appreciate this by taking a walk along the quiet water surface on a small fishing boat. It is not for nothing that the lake is called a bird’s paradise, and its symbol is a majestic and very rare bird in nature — a curly-haired pelican. Keeping in mind the historical significance of these places, we will visit the active monastery of the 14th century, located on the island of Starčevo. After that, you will have the opportunity to swim in fresh water and sunbathe on the sandy beach.
Returning to the shore, on the cozy terrace of the fisherman’s house you will have to taste lunch, the main dish of which, of course, will be fresh fish cooked according to an old national recipe. The hospitality of the fisherman’s family will allow you to plunge into the atmosphere of local customs and traditions. And all this in the heart of fabulous Montenegro!
