Skadarsko Jezero

by Discover Montenegro

Named after the city of Shkodra in northern Albania, Skadarsko Jezero also known as Lake Skadar is the largest lake on the Balkan Peninsula and with its surrounding wetlands it encompasses one of the most important bird and fish habitats in the Mediterranean region. About 62 percent of the lake lies in Montenegro and the rest in Albania. Home to several species of fish and birds, Skadarsko Jezero is a critical wintering and staging site for migratory birds and European waterfowl and the western most nesting site for the rare and elegant curly or Dalmatian pelican; in all, more than 280 species of birds have been recorded here, as well as 50 species of fish. Skadarsko Jezero is largely fed by rivers, springs and underground watercourses and is connected to the Adriatic Sea by the River Bojana.
