Piva Lake Tour

 

Piva Lake

 

 

 

According opinion of many tourists, northern region is the most attractive part of Montenegro. Exciting landscapes, beautiful lakes, spectacular view points, interesting history of this part of Montenegro will not leave you indifferent. Furthermore...just the drive itself is breathtaking.

 

We depart from your hotel and drive over Podgorica and Niksic to Pluzine, the youngest town in a region, situated on the shore of Piva lake. After the building Mratinje Dam which was formed by construction of the Piva hydro-electric plant in 1975 (240 m high), the town was transferred uphill, while the previous location was flooded by newly created Piva Lake.

 

Upon arrival in Pluzine, we will board a boat for a cruise on the lake Piva which is 45 kilometers long and up to 200 meters deep. The elevation is 675 m from the sea level, making it the most elevated artificial reservoir in the world. Unusual beauty of Piva Lake will make this boat ride memorable. After the boat ride we will enjoy in lunch made of local specialties.

 

After lunch, we will visit Piva Monastery which once was at the source of the Piva River, but due to submersion and construction of hydro power plant it was relocated, which was a unique construction project of monastery displacement altogether with original frescoes. The project was very complex bearing in mind the fact that it is a monumental temple which was painted inside with 1.260 square meters of wall paintings of great value. The Assumption Church was built thanks to the then Metropolitan Savatije Sokolovic from 1573 to1586 at the place of an older temple. Soon it became one of the most important centers of the spiritual arts and copying services. The interior is full with gilded iconostasis and woodcuts dating from 1638. It is characterized by proportionality, the luxury of carving, impressively painted icons of Longin and kir Cosmas. The church has decorative furniture of Notre Dame, Bishop's desk and doors, made of ivory. The monastery treasury is one of the richest in Montenegro and it consists of valuable collections of the manuscripts and early printed books in the Balkans (the only preserved Psalter from Obod Printing).
