Skadar Lake is an ecological kingdom, a quiet oasis and a place for personal contact with intact nature. The lake is one of the largest bird reserve in Europe, with more than 280 bird species, some of which are on the list of endangered species, like the Dalmatian Pelican and Pigmy Cormorant. The lake is also a habitat for more then 50 species of fish, but the predominant species are carp and bleak. The warm waters of the lake are great for swimming, and of course the many beaches offer time for relaxation and sunbathing. One of the most popular beaches is the beach in Murici, located very closely to the border with Albania, with the fabulous view on whole lake.
