Skadar Lake cruise

It doesn’t matter what season it is, every traveler has to experience lake cruising. We are here to help you with that. Skadar Lake has a lot to offer, but we suggest to you routes which are, in our opinion, the most beautiful. All routes begin in Virpazar. This small picturesque town was founded in 19th century and named by whirl (vir), where the locals came by boats to the market place where they were selling their homemade products. Virpazar has around 300 citizens and its located on the delta of rivers Crmnica and Orahovstica, has three bridges with a medieval fortress Besac above it.

Full-day route - For this route we recommend department from Virpazar, passing by ancient fishing villages Seoca, Radus, Krnjice, Dracevica, visiting Lake islands Starcevo and Beska, on which are situated monasteries. If you wish you can enjoy swimming in the Lake from the boat or on the beach Murici. On the biggest island on Skadar lake – Beska, on the small hill beside the water there are two churches from Balsica1s foundation. In the 1386, Djuradj Balsic built a bigger church devoted to saint George. Not so far from her husband`s grave church, Jelena Balsic built her church in 1439 on the foundation of an older church. The oldest church on the Lake is located on Starcevo hill. It was founded during the 14th century and devoted to the Mother of Jesus Christ as a foundation of Djuradj Balsic. An old man – anchoret makarije, named the island.
