What to Expect

Skadar Lake represents an oasis for all nature lovers. There are 264 species of birds on the lake, 73 species are nesting nests, 18 species are regular passersby, 45 species are winter guests, 12 species regularly spend the summer without stumbling. The reason for this diversity of birds is the ecological and geological characteristic as well as the unevenness of the ecosystem. Most often, cormorants, grey white and yellow herons, mussels, wild ducks, bar cuts and so on can be seen. The spectacular place is certainly taken by Pelican.

With its beautiful shore, Skadar Lake is captivated and enchanted by numerous visitors. On the lake itself, there is a large number of Orthodox monasteries on the islands of “Gorizia”.
