A special pebble in the impressive mosaic of Montenegro nature belongs to the National Park Biogradska gora (Biograd Mountain).

In 1878. H.M. Prince Nikola Petrović, Lord of Montenegro appointed this landscape to be cared and preserved with special attention. From these days on, this precious piece of nature is named as Prince's Grove (Branik). Good history and early presence of understanding for the preservance of natural resources keep this oasis of untouched nature living it's own life just like 1000 years ago.

There are five magnificent glacier lakes, with Lake Biograd, which is often named as the most beautiful lake in the Balkans.

Lake Biograd is located at 1094 m above sea level, surrounded with an old virgin forest, 1100 m long, with an average depth of 4,5 m, and 3,5 km long lakeside with footways. Swamp side at the Biograd River delta is bridged with a long wooden bridge, which hides in green forest during Spring and Summer. A sight to remember!
