National Park Skadar Lake

The largest lake in the Balkans and also the only national park dominated by water and wetland ecosystems. The northern marshy coast (about 20,000 ha) provides ideal conditions for the development of wildlife, especially for the life of birds. 281 species of birds live, nest, winter or migrate on the Lake. This gives this area more importance.
