Captain’s Lake almost touches the clouds!

If you can imagine a place where nature and legend meet, creating a magical world that will enchant you, then plan a visit to the Captain’s Lake (Kapetanovo jezero), which almost touches clouds in Montenegro.

Located below the mountain peaks, at an altitude of 1,678 meters, the Captain’s Lake is not just a lake. It is a place where you can feel the pulse of nature and see how the mountains are reflected in the crystal-clear water.

Captain’s Lake was named after Captain Mušović, who defended every stone on the shores of this lake for years during Turkish rule.

According to legend, the Captain’s Lake was created when a fairy forgot to close the source from which the fairies drew their strength. The spring flooded the valley, creating the lake we know today. 🙂

You can reach the Captain’s Lake, which is located on the Lukavica mountain, by car from the direction of Nikšić, and if you are coming from the direction of Kolašin, you can reach the lake by hiking trails. However, this option is recommended only for the advanced hikers.



After it snows, a small waterfall is activated in the vicinity of Captain’s Lake, which gives a special charm to this natural beauty.

Although illegal construction is somewhat eroding the natural environment of Captain’s lake, it is still more than a destination, a priceless experience, a place that will enchant you with its beauty and story that will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.






I do miracles right away, but the impossible still takes me a little time!
