In the same national park you will find ‘Crno jezero or ‘Black Lake’, just outside the small sleepy town of Zabljak. It’s a popular tourist destination and many make it a day trip from the Kotor area.
We skipped the lake and just relaxed in Zabljak itself. While we studied the menu at Papagaj, a cow suddenly walked by in the street outside. We were not the only ones raising our eye brows, when we realized that you are still allowed to smoke inside at the restaurants here. Being from Northern Europe, this was strange.
At the time, the TV series Twin Peaks came to my mind. A sleepy little village in the mountains, surrounded by forest, where every home seemed to prepare for cold winters by storing huge piles of logs. Luckily, little dancing men and elderly ladies carrying their logs were not in sight.
