What to Expect on The Black Lake and the Top of Savin Kuk

Nature is extremely generous towards the Žabljak, that is evidenced by 18 glacier lakes scattered by its mountain ranges. Every lake is beautiful in its own way, but it is not near the beauty of the Black Lake.

Landscapes are amazing in this area, which is just another example, how nature regulates everything, without interaction with man, and anyone who visits the Black Lake, only admire what he sees. A mountain, a lake, a dense Durmitor pine surrounding the entire lake – simply, it’s impossible not to enjoy!

During the summer months, the water temperature of the lake is over 22 degrees, so that those who love, can enjoy on the swim, with the view on Durmitor!
