Only 3km away from the centre of Zabljak, Malo (Small) and Veliko (Big) Lakes merge into Crno (Black) Lake. This lake is specific for its dark blue shade of water, which often seems black, and the effect is created by the Lake's depth and the dense Durmitor pine forest surrounding it.

Only a quick walk from the centre of Zabljak...took 30 mins, signposted on the way so you can't get lost. There is a car park at the National Park site that cuts walking time to 5 mins (btw, timings based on me being 26 years old and physically able!), with it coating €3 per person for day entry to the...

There are few places on earth where you feel so close to such dramatic mountain and lake scenery. I visited the Black Lake (Crno Jezero) in the Spring when the ice and snow were starting to melt and I was blown away by its beauty as well as the majestic snow-capped surrounding mountains. I didn't want to leave. There is... More

A must visit in Montenegro, this amazing emerald-green lake is situated in the Durmitor NP. A short walk from the parking and you can feast your eyes on the this lake surrounded by the snow-covered peaks. You can walk around the lake or just sit there and enjoy the air, the view and recharge your soul.

Beautiful, peacefull nature around this, emerald-green lake is just breathtaking! Amazing symphony of colors and freshness in the air. You would wish to sit by this lake for hours. You can rent a boat or walk around it, or just simply choose a bench and enjoy yourself.

If you are somewhere near Zabljak, you should definitely visit Durmitor National Park and Crno Lake. It's just breathtaking nature. If you are in a hurry you don't have to worry, cuz it's a really short walk from parking lot. Definitely bring a camera with you, if you like to make some stunning photos.

One of the many glacial lakes in Durmitor NP, black lake is surrounded by some high peaks. It's a short walk from the parking area. You find a restaurant at the shore and you can hire boats. There is an easy walk (with a few climbs) around the lake. The total length is 3,5 km but there is a shortcut.... More
