Description

Begin your journey in Virpazar, the tiny fishing village located in the heart of Skadar Lake. Follow a small river channel surrounded by fields of reeds and rows of willows and find yourself on the open waters of Skadar Lake. Watch Vranjina proudly standing against the largest lake in southern Europe. Pass under a nearby bridge and glide down paths enclosed with endless fields of kasaronja (water chestnuts). The ruins of Lesendro, an 18th-century fortification, appear soon after, along with their bird visitants, treating you with a beautiful view. Enjoy fresh air flowing through your body as you pass by the place where Skadar Lake meets its richest tributary - Morača River. Have the view melt before your eyes into thousands of white and yellow water lily flowers hidden behind three islets. Take the narrow passage between the uneven coast and marshy fields to the foot of Odrin hill - the home of Monastery Kom. Let the aroma of wild thyme dancing in the breeze tickle your senses as you look at the best-preserved frescoes in this area. With such a pristine environment, you can be sure that the monastery honey is equally delightful. Leave this picturesque view, and take a refreshing swim before arriving back at Virpazar.
