Crno Lake - Montenegro

The Montenegro card Ana sent me is this one with the Crno Lake, the biggest and the best known of 18 glacier lakes on the Durmitor National Park, in northern Montenegro.

Montenegro only has 2 sites classified as Unesco World Heritage Sites, Durmitor and Kotor, thanks to Ana i've cards from both sites. Thank you, thank you Ana!!!!

"Durmitor is a mountain and the name of a national park in North Western Montenegro. It reaches a height of 2,522 m.

The Durmitor National Park, created in 1952, includes the massif of Durmitor, the canyons of Tara, Sušica and Draga rivers and the higher part of the canyon plateau Komarnica, covering the area of 390 km².

It was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1980.

80 km long and 1,300 m deep Tara River Canyon, a part of the National park Durmitor, is second largest in the world, just behind Grand Canyon in Arizona." - in: wikipedia
