Skadar Lake – a must-see!

Skadar Lake is situated on the border of Albania and Montenegro, and is the largest lake in the Balkans. It is one of the most diverse places in Europe, with numerous endemic species. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit Skadar twice the past year. Both times I’ve seen it from the Montenegrin side, but thankfully we’ve stopped in different places and I’ve tried to capture its beauty from every angle possible. This year, as we stepped out from the bus and onto the lake shore, we’ve instantly seen 2 snakes, a tortoise and numerous bird species in under a minute. So you can imagine the richness of plant and animal life! Here’s a photo essay of my 14 best shots of this amazing lake – aiming to convince you that it’s one of the top attractions of the Balkans and an absolute must-see!
