Overview

River Piva is located in the northwestern part of Montenegro at the foot of the high mountain zone, which is called Pivska mountain. The Piva canyon is characterized by the fact that by the power of the human hand, the work of nature has been changed. However, this does not disturb the essence and beauty of the river and the canyon. By building a hydroelectric power plant and dam Mratinje, artificial lake Piva was created. The Mratinje dam is 220 meters high and is one of the largest dams of its kind in Europe. The view of the dam is magnificent and it looks unreal and impressive.

Lake Piva is located in the northwest part of the country, in Plužine Municipality. On the bottom of the lake, there is the old town Plužine.

The lake is in some places deep and over 200 m long and 45 km long. The Piva River is extremely clean and the water is constantly drinkable and Pivsko Lake is considered the largest reservoir of drinking water in the world.

Many people say that Piva Canyon was even more beautiful, more attractive and more mysterious than the Tara canyon. The temperature in summer is around 22°C and it is a real paradise for recreation and sports activities.

What to Expect

After Skadar Lake, Piva Lake is the second largest lake in Montenegro. The incredible colour of the lake, combined with the surrounding forest, leaves no one indifferent, so you would never think it’s an artificial creature! Piva Lake represents the lake with the finest water in the Balkans, and this whole area is one of the most beautiful sites in the region. The beauty of this region is another proof of what the “power of nature” actually is.

Piva Lake represents the ideal “salvation” from the summer heat, and enjoyment in the natural environment. During the summer months, many visitors choose to swim here, because the water temperatures are very pleasant, or simply enjoy what they see around you –  in landscapes.

Join us for cruising over the smooth, green and blue water of Piva Lake. Our boat, will sail and roll from one bay to another, always looking for the most beautiful place.

Lake cruise is a real pleasure and offers a relaxing, peaceful day on the lake, in a natural setting, with a beautiful view and soothing fresh air. Come to experience when you are alone, with your friends or family on your adventure with cruising on the Piva Lake:

 

  • The unbelievable beauty of the lake

  • Greenish-blue color of the lake
