The Mratinje Dam is a concrete arch dam in the canyon of the Piva river in Montenegro. The dam was completed in 1975 with designs by Energoprojekt. It’s construction resulted in the flooding of the Piva canyon and the creation of Lake Piva, which, with its 12.5 km², is the second largest lake in Montenegro. The dam is 220 metres (720 ft) high, one of the highest in Europe. The dam is 268 metres (879 ft) long and 4.5 metres (15 ft) thick at the crest, while it is 30 metres (98 ft) long and 36 metres (118 ft) thick at the base.
