3. Ludosko Jezero
Ludosko lake is the second biggest lake in Serbia. It is 4 km long, 200- 300 m wide and is located 7 km east of Palic. What makes this lake unique are the rare and endangered animal species that found their home here. Because of this, the lake and its surroundings are protected as a special nature reserve. The territory is divided into three sections. The first one is only open for scientific research, in the second one sports fishing is allowed and the third one is for tourists. This area is also significant for its archaeological locality with the excavations from the age of Paleolithic, Neolithic and Copper.
4. Vlasina Lake
Vlasina lake originates from the cumulative effects of the water from the river Vlasina. It is in the region of southeast Serbia and it is surrounded by mountains on the altitude of 1204 m. The Lake is 9 km long with an average depth of 10 m. It is the biggest artificial lake in Serbian and on the highest altitude. It has a few bays that are good for water sports and placing boats. After the lake was made, parts of the soil and peat from the bottom of the lake formed floating islands that are still left on the surface of the lake.
5. Srebrno Jezero
Silver Lake is one of the most popular retreats in Serbia, 120 km from Belgrade. It is a 14 km long artificial cumulative lake that was made by partitioning the Dunav by a dam. On its way to the lake, water is naturally filtered and that is why it is perfectly clear with a silver reflection. It is popular among fisherman and swimmers but there are plenty of other activities around the lake as well. Aqua park, touristic boat rides, and water skiing are just a few interesting things to do when visiting the Silver Lake.
