The National Park Durmitor spreads across 39000 ha, and its area of 20000 ha has been included in the UNESCO since 1980. Zabljak, the city with the greatest height above the sea level in the Balkans, 1456 m, is situated here. It is surrounded by 23 mountain peaks over 2300m high.
There are 17 glacier lakes called “mountain eyes” in the area of Durmitor. The most famous is Black Lake, covered with ice and crystals of frozen snowflakes in the winter. You can swim in it in the middle of the summer. Between the steep hillsides or hidden in the green, thick foliage, are the magic beauties: Zmijinje, Barno, Riblje, Vrazje, Modro and the other lakes.
“Bobotov kuk“, the highest peak 2523 m, dominates over all of Montenegro.
The Tara canyon, the deepest canyon in Europe, and the canyons of Susica and Komarnica, contributes to the beauty of Durmitor.
The rich flora, containing over 1500 species derived from the far geologic past, has been Skijanjesaved. The fauna is also rich; there are over 130 kinds of birds, and eagles are distinguished among them. Bears and wolves are also typical for the Durmitor woods.
“Ledena pecina” (the Ice Cave), located under the peak Obla Glava, 2100 m above sea level, represents a fascinating natural phenomena. It can be easily reached by a marked mountain path. One can enjoy its “museum” of stalactites and stalagmites, even in the summer.
There are snowy areas in the highest parts of Durmitor even in the middle of summer, and you can ski in the area of Velika Kalica.
