Created by a delta of the Morača River, the island is in the northern part of the Skadarsko Jezero . It has an area of 4.8 km2 and its highest point is at 296 meters, making it the highest island in Montenegro.
The island is connected to the mainland by a bridge, towards Podgorica, and a causeway, across the lake towards Bar. St. Nikola’s monastery is a well-known feature on the island. Vranjina village, on the shores of the Skadarsko Jezero, is called the Montenegrin Venice because of its natural setting. It is a popular fishing spot.
There is also a single-platform train station here, about five hundred meters beyond the village, and buses stop at the entrance to the village.
A few fish restaurants are located on the island.
