The Montenegrian part of the lake was declared as a National Park in 1983. The Lake Skadar is the biggest lake of the Balkan, depending on the water level, ranging from 370 to 530 square kilometers.
The lake is surrounded by the Montenegrian mountains of Lovćen, Sutorman, Rumija and Tarabosh in Albania on the southern side. The mountains are a natural Dinaric barrier, separating the Adriatic Sea from the Skadar Lake basin.
The landscape of the lake consists of three very different elements – the marshlands of the northern shores, the open waters of the lake and the mountainous karst landscape of the southern and western shores.
