Skadar Lake is located in the so called Zeta-Skadar valley that partly belongs to the municipality of the city of Bar and partly to the municipality of the city of Podgorica. Indescribable and in many ways unique, with the size of 391km2, it is the largest lake on the Balkan Peninsula.
Driving through the newly build Sozina tunnel, the lake is only a short 20 minute drive away from the Adriatic Sea. The river Bojana creates a connection between Skadar Lake and the Adriatic Sea though a large mountain massive that separates the two. Two thirds of the lake belongs to Montenegro, while one third belongs to the Republic of Albania.
The lake is cryptodepression, which means that some parts of its bottom are below the sea level. Such sites are called sublakistric springs or eyes. There are about 30. The deepest eye is Radus, 60 m deep, and with some data deeper, while the average depth of Jezera is about 6 m.
The Montenegrin part of the lake, at a size of 40000 hectares, was declared a National Park in 1983.
