About Environmental Protection - Zminje Lake

Zminje Lake is located on the Durmitor Mountain. This lake—even though quite small in size—is hidden in the depths of the forest and an hour away by foot from the Black Lake.There is a legend surrounding Zminje Lake, explaining how it got its unusual name (Zminje means Snake’s). Namely, tradition has it that there used to be many snakes in this area. Then came a winter bitter cold and snowy and the snakes, trying to get warm, all gathered at this spot. However, there they froze and disappeared, and when the winter was over, all that was left was the lake and the surrounding forest’s reflection in it, resembling a snake scale pattern. As part of its Environmental Protection Edition: Zminje Lake, Montenegro Post is publishing a commemorative postage stamp and First Day Cover. The author of the design is Zoran Popović, a graphic designer from Podgorica.
