VRANSKO JEZERO (distance 80 km)


Lake Vrana near Pakostane/Biograd was proclaimed a Nature Park in 1999. This is a natural phenomenon in the Dalmatian karst and with its 30 square kilometres and 12.5 kilometres length is the largest natural lake in Croatia. The lake is in some parts is no less than 800 meters away from the sea. It is nothing else but gift of nature to the traveller - this experience of sea and lake; greenish and azure colours, whilst driving down the Adriatic highway.

The ornithological reserve in the northwestern part of the lake is a bird watcher's paradise. This swampy area is the nesting ground of the only heron colony on the Adriatic coast. Guests can enjoy themselves fishing for freshwater fish: carp, pike, catfish (prize catches are not infrequent) and due to the mixing of fresh and salt water, it is also possible to hook eel and boor. Prize catfish hauls can reach up to 150 kg and are a real challenge for anglers. Fishing licenses (daily, weekly, monthly and yearly ones) can be obtained at the reception desk of motor camps. Rowboats can also be rented.

Apart from fishing and relaxing in the undisturbed natural surroundings, guests of Lake Vrana are offered fish delicacies at the lake restaurant (cat fish, carp, eel).
