Located at the foot of Tovarnica, Donje Bare is surrounded by stunning meadows and famously stole of the heart of Uncle Joe himself, Tito, who had a chalet nearby.
Just a couple of kilometres from its lower equivalent, Gornji Bare is also surrounded by lush meadows and carries a sense of grace that can’t be faked.
Almost 1500m above sea level, Orlovačko isn’t the biggest lake in the world but don’t sell this little stunner short.
Not the easiest of the lakes to approach, but Kladopoljsko is of particular interest to fly-fishermen. Well, it is of particular interest to anyone who likes beautiful things too, but that should go without saying.
Another little beacon of beauty, Kotlaničko Lake is renowned for being the home of a special type of newt. A big newt fan? Get yourself here, pronto.
Far and away the biggest of Zelengora’s glacial lakes, Štirinsko Lake is the best when it comes to days spent sat by the water with a few drinks in tow. The lake itself isn’t deep enough for swimming, but we’ve always been ‘sit nearby’ types anyway. Speaking of ‘nearby’, there are plenty of old stećci in the surrounding areas.
We’re mixing languages now, but never mind. The White Lake is found at 1450m, with the peaks of Orlovac and Trebova nearby.
The Black Lake is found 500m north of its white counterpart, and this is about as relaxing as it gets. A fly-fisher’s dream to say the least.
