Skadar, or Scutari as it's also called, is a lake along the border of Montenegro and Albania – two thirds of the lake is in Montenegro - and it's the largest lake on the Balkan peninsular. The two thirds in Montenegro had the area surrounding declared a National Park to help protect one of Europe's largest bird reserves – the home of more than 270 species including some of Europe's last pelicans. The lake is full of fish – which is why there are so many birds, especially pelicans.
