Welcome to Plav
As if knowing that such beauty demands a mirror, Lake Plav (Plavsko jezero) has positioned itself to provide it. Devastatingly pretty, it swarms with tiny fish swimming between the reeds and water lilies, and a chorus of birds and frogs sing their contentment to call it home. The human occupants seem rather less appreciative, judging by the amount of rubbish washing into it from the township. The lakeside road passes a crop of massive turreted houses that either take their inspiration from fairy tales or nightmares, take your pick.
Plav is a predominantly Muslim town, with 80% of locals identifying their ethnicity as Bosniak or Muslim and a further 9% as Albanian.
Plav and nearby Gusinje are the best towns to access Prokletije National Park.
