Lake Shkodra (Albanian: Liqeni i Shkodrës, Serbian: Скадарско језеро, Skadarsko jezero) The largest lake on the Balkan peninsula between Albania and Montenegro. The city, which was founded by its name, is taken from Shkodra. In other European languages, Skadar is also known as Scutari.

The height of the lake, which is about 6 meters above sea level, ranges from 370 to 530 square kilometers with the reason for the change in resources supplied by the area’s seasons. It is nourished by the Morava River and connected to the Adriatic Sea by the Bojana River, 40 kilometers long.

The area within the border of the Montenegrin State of the lake is located in the region where the national park was declared in 1983. More than 270 bird species, including the last pelicans in Europe, are among the richest natural areas in Europe. Another important bird species on the ground is maritime, and fisheries are also exploited. The most common fish from the sea are carp, sardines and snake fish
