Natural History Photographs


The town of Žabljak is situated at the Durmitor National Park, our second destination this day. First we explored the shore of a small lake close to Žabljak, then we tried to find our way into the mountains. We didn't travel far into the park, but went looking shortly after having left Žabljak. The town itself was not too interesting, it seemed to thrive mostly on tourism related to winter sports.
