Whether you are a nature lover or not. The breakthrough of the hot summer days in Petrovac is something that is very pleasing to most guests during the vacation. Before we open the topic of national park Biogradska gora, we remind you that on our blog we have written about other national parks in Montenegro. You can find texts about Durmitor, Lovcen and Skadar Lake.
Now, let's go back to the national park Biogradska Gora. This site is not just about “refreshing” during the hot Summer days, but mainly about nature, hiking, or if you are not in a physical condition or mood for hiking than just relaxing next to one of the lakes. After about 2 hours 30 minutes drive from Petrovac you will be on Biogradska Gora and in the company of:
- glacier lakes
- plant species, around 2000
- 90 species of trees, some of them over 400 years old, and up to 60 meters tall
- 200 species of birds
- 80 types of butterflies
- 350 species of insects
As you can see, the flora and fauna of Biogradska gora are rich, and for all of you who like hiking, you will be glad to hear that the National Park has 6 marked hiking trails. To walk around every one of these tracks, it would take you roughly about 72 hours, so, you do not have to worry about the lack of “territory”.
In addition to the hiking trails, visitors spend a lot of time at the lakes within the national park. There is a total of 6 glacier lakes. Before all, of course, Lake Biograd, than Pesic Lake, Ursulovacka lakes - big lake and the small lake, Siska lakes - big lake and the small lake.
In addition to the very appearance of the Biogradsko Lake, it is fascinating that once on this land was a glacier. In a very long process, the glacier disappeared, leaving Biogradsko Lake in its place.
Every national park has something specific, something unique in the world, perhaps a place in the Guinness book of world records. When it comes to Biogradska gora, the forest is the one that has distinguished it on the map of Europe. Because going to Biogradska gora you will be in one of the 3 remaining rainforests in Europe. When was the last time you were in the rainforest/jungle?
Finally, we remind you that the guests of our hotel in Petrovac, have the opportunity to book a one-day excursion from the reception. With our partner, travel agency Medini, a various excursion through Montenegro can be booked at the reception.
