Plav

 

 

 

Plav is a town in eastern Montenegro and it is located at the foot of the Prokletije mountain range, adjacent to the springs of the river Lim. Plav, as the old archives say, was the name for the whole region and it was named after the Roman emperor Flavius (Phlavius) and the times when that area belonged to the Roman Empire.

 

Plav municipality include also Gusinje. Gusinje is near the border with Albania, southwest of Plav, it is located where two rivers, Grncar and Vruja, meet.

 

The area contains many lakes and the most known is Lake Plav, one of the largest in this region. Plavsko Lake lies in peace surrounded by green meadows and low bushes, at the foothills of the mountains Prokletije and Visitor reflecting in the lake. The lakes Hrid and Visitor are mountain lakes.

 

In the massif of Prokletije, among many springs the most beautiful are Ali-Pasha’s springs and Oko Skakavice (Spring of the river Skakavica). While Oko Skakavice is a spring of ice-cold water that comes out of the great depth, Ali-Pasha’s springs bubble on the surface of over 300 square metres.

 

The most important cultural and historical monuments preserved in this area are definitely "Old Mosque" in Plav, the Church "Holy Trinity" in Brezojevica, "Kula Redzepagica" in Plav and "Vizier Mosque" in Gusinje.

 

The region is also known by its towers and watchtowers from the Ottoman times built in the 17th and 18th century. These facilities increased the tourist value of this region, as well as the locations where they are.

 

Today most of the people born in Plav and Gusinje region live abroad and the town gets alive only during their summer vacations when they return to see their relatives. Even when its people leave it and go to live somewhere else they always go back to it or they create colonies – another Plav and another Gusinje on another continent. Thousands of them meet every year at the end of august at Ali-Pasha’s Springs near Gusinje.
