Only 3km away from the centre of Zabljak, Malo (Small) and Veliko (Big) Lakes merge into Crno (Black) Lake. This lake is specific for its dark blue shade of water, which often seems black, and the effect is created by the Lake's depth and the dense Durmitor pine forest surrounding it.

Crno Lake makes an ideal retreat from the other thrills of the Durmiror, it's a short walk from the town, if you're driving, there's a paid carpark at the start of the walk. Somehow we managed to get lost walking around the lake, but we weren't the only ones, so just beware the path divides and wanders.

We loved this lake and the forest around it. One walks about 15 minutes from the parking to the lake after you pay a small fee, but the walk is beautiful, though a fairy tale forest, open wood glade and flowers and the sounds of birds surrounds you. As a glacial lake it was surprisingly refreshing but not freezing for... More

Nice lake, beautiful park around and area. Lots of flowers and trees, but a lot of similar places I have seen. Lake Sinevir in Ukraine Carpathian mountains is more impressive!

The first morning of our trip, after arriving in Zabljak, we went to the Crno Lake and hiked around it. It is about 5 km and worth the walk. Not always an easy road though (sometimes we had to walk trough the waterfalls and even climb rocks). The lake is very beautiful anyway, so even if you don't feel like... More

As we ran out of time because we were lost in the Zabljak village area searching for Curavec Gorge, we went to the Black Lake for a short visit only. The view was stunning but it rained briefly after we had walked for a while so we decided to turn back. We found out there's a small village called Ivan... More

It's an easy walk away from the parking. After a few hard days of rafting or kayaking on Tara River, a peaceful easy walk around this beautiful lake.

Most beautiful lake in Balkans. Hiking, climbing and alpinistic tours possible from Black Lake 1442 masl to several mt. Durmitors peaks from 2000 to 2523 masl. In this area there are 18 more lakes as beautiful as Black lake. Come and see for yourself!

Very beautiful lake. Walk a little bit and you will leave the bus tourists behind you. Be aware that the walk around the lake, over Mali Meded, can become very steep. At the top there is a rope to walk on the cliffs. Since it was raining, misty and cold, we decided to turn around and return from where we... More

The Black Lake is beautiful, tranquil and an absolute "must see" if you are in the Zabljak area. I loved it so much that I went twice. I would however recommend going late afternoon or in the early evening when all the crowds/ tourist buses have gone as you virtually have it all to yourself. Also, the reflections on the... More
