Black Lake, Durmitor
Montenegro, Zhabljak

On the slopes of Mount Durmitor, at an altitude of 1416 meters, 3 km from the town of Zabljak, there is a unique reservoir of Montenegro - the glacial Black Lake, whose area is 516 thousand square meters. It is part of an ecosystem of eighteen glacial lakes located near the town of Zabljak, on the territory of the Durmitor National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In fact, Black Lake is two isolated lakes (Big and Small), which are connected by a narrow channel. When the melting of the snow begins, water flows from one lake to another, forming a picturesque waterfall. In summer, the duct dries up, and both lakes exist apart from each other. The shores of the lake are densely overgrown with coniferous forest, which, reflected in the water, gives it the very characteristic “black” color, for which the lake was called Black. And the locals nicknamed this lake "Eyes of the Mountains" or "Mountain Eyes", as the water is so clear that it can be seen up to 9 meters in calm weather. In winter, a dense crust of ice covers the lake. Even in summer, the water is cool enough. Only closer to the end of summer, the water warms up to 20 degrees and you can swim. You can admire the picturesque shores in 2 - 2.5 hours, bypassing the lake around. Comfortable benches are set along the hiking trail surrounding the lake. At the Black Lake you can not only fish, but also taste deliciously prepared dishes of fresh fish in a restaurant with national Montenegrin cuisine.
