Biogradska Gora National Park Tour

On our way to the NP Biogradska Gora we pass Montenegro's capital Podgorica after which we then drive a scenic route through the canyon of Moraca, where we stop to visit Moraca monastery from the 13th century. After lunch we take a one-hour walk around the Lake Biogradsko in the NP Biogradska Gora.
Although the NP Biogradska Gora is the smallest of the five national parks in Montenegro it features very diverse flora and fauna. There are 220 unique species of plants, 150 species of birds, 10 different mammals and 350 species of insects. The forest has 86 different species of trees and mosses as well as three species of trout in the parks lakes. What makes the park special is the 16 km2 rainforest, with trees over 500 years old. In the heart of the rainforest is the lake Biogradsko Jezero, the largest lake in the park.
The Biogradsko Lake is situated in the heart of Biogradska Gora park at an altitude of 1094 meters above sea level. It is the largest of the six glacial lakes that are scattered throughout the park. Biogradska Gora was made a national park in 1952 and has been a protected area since 1878 by a law of King Nikola of Montenegro.
