After the vertiginous views from the monastery we’re heading to the lovely little mountain town of Žabljak.
Zabljak is the highest urban settlement in the Balkans, located at the altitude of 1456m in the middle of Durmitor National Park.
Žabljak is surrounded by 22 mountain peaks over 2200 meters, 18 mountain lakes and the Tara canyon – the deepest in Europe – making it the perfect base for some outdoor adventures.
As we head nearer we begin to see the distinctive Alpinesque buildings start to appear with their steeply sloping roofs designed to stop snow settling.
Here’s a tour of our adorable little mountain home for the next two days. I feel like Heidi!!!
And the view to our neighbouring hut – everything is just so cute!
Having settled into our accommodation we’re going to see one of the area’s highlights – the Black Lake in Durmitor National Park.
There’s some stunning scenery coming up so watch this space!
