The most beautiful national park, the oasis of peace and pristine nature in Montenegro is definitely Skadar Lake. Situated close to the capital, in the wine region of the country, it is a unique ecosystem built on the combination of swamp, forest and rocky ground which favors flora and fauna. Therefore 281 bird species live, nest, spend winter or migrate on this lake. Dalmatian pelican stands out among all of them, which is why it is a trademark of Skadar Lake National Park. It is a natural habitat for 48 species of fish, numerous amphibians and mammals.
