Owner description: 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.

“Black Lake in Durmitor National Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Durmitor National Park is absolutely beautiful and I was surprised with the amount of marked and well maintained trails there are. One of my favorite hikes were around the Crno Jezero that eventually led us to SEVERAL other lakes. The hike just around the lake takes about 45 minutes if you're walking at good speed. Even though you can rent bikes, I don't recommend mountain biking around it, the trail would is a bit difficult for that. There is a park entry fee however if you start at any other point (not from the main visitor section) you can walk in avoiding the fee. We bought a 3 day pass and it was a waste of money because none of the other trail heads required a pass or entry fee.

Fascinating nature, Lake and surrounding peaks makes scenery as from the fairytale Pity that visitors doesn't care much about clean environment. Needs more infrastructure. And people to take care about the natural treasure.Don't know what for the fee is paid.

“We Call it Black Lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

This is a national park which had an admission fee. Park at the gate and walk about 15 minutes in to a beautiful pair of twin lakes. They are interesting in that they are bifurcated. In the spring, with all the mountain runoff, one fills and flows into the other with the resultant outflow going into the Tara watershed, and as the levels reverse with less water from the mountains, the flow reverses and the outflow goes into another watershed on the other side. As noted by other reviewers, there are locals along the very pleasant path in who sell small cups of locally-picked berries (1.5 Euros each). There is a refreshment stand at the end of the trail by the lakes and the whole area is beautiful with wonderful mountain backdrops. Idea for a hiking destination.

“Beautiful lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

When in Zabliak, make a tour around this nice lake or if you want you can rent a boat.
Lovely is also to go for a swim in summer time. We were here in August.
It is situated about 3 km. from Zabliak (Durmitor Park-Unesco Heritage).
There is a parking. You have to pay 3Euro to enter in the park along a pedestrian street.
Fresh air, fantastic view in the middle of the forest.
Do not miss this Black Lake

“Oh my!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Crno Jezero is the most popular tourist attraction in Durmitor Park. Actually, there are two lakes - a small one and a big one. The lakes are situated 3km from Žabljak. A 700 m road leads to them and the entrance fee to the park is €3. The views are really beautifully and worth spending some time there.
