Sometimes the reality just isn’t enough. Maybe what you need is a short journey to a place of legends to reignite your imagination.
Mountains around the capital city, Podgorica, hide some great places, and we’ll take you to one of them. Transfer from Podgorica will last around an hour and once we reach village Guzevalje, adventure begins. Goal is reaching Treskavac peak which is at 2024m of elevation. Climbing up takes around 3 hours and from the top you get to see other peaks of Zijevo massif, but also Komovi Mountain on the other side. Downwards we go for an hour and a half, and there we will find a beautiful glacial made lake, Bukumirsko jezero. There are stories and legends about fairies that made this lake, bring them back to life by them by throwing stones from the shore, locals say that this will make the lake to grant your wishes – the bigger the stone, the more you can wish for. On our way back, we take some offbeat path with the jeep and organize a traditional meal in an authentic restaurant with a name that speaks for itself: the Old House (Stara Kuca, originally). Return to Podgorica in the late afternoon hours.
