Bileća lake was created in 1968 when the Grančarevo Dam was constructed and now dominates a stunning landscape of lime stone mountains and karst formations, free from the meddling of those pesky humans. That is somewhat ironic, considering the whole ‘man-made lake’ thing, but you get the point. The most picturesque spot in this buffet is undoubtedly the curious island, giving Bileća the feel of a Lake Bled on steroids, or at least on a different type of steroid. The Church of St Elijah the Prophet sits on the island, surrounded by verdant nature and a sense of true serenity. If you’re going to find the big man anywhere, it’ll be here. A small stećci necropolis isalso found here.
