Mratinje Dam is situated in Montenegro. It was built there in 1976. The dam is 220 meters high and 268 meters long. The dam is located in the canyon of Piva River. Now the dam is one of the largest in Europe. When the dam was built canyon of Piva was fully flooded. Now there you can see a wonderful lake, second-largest in the country.
Before the dam there was an old monastery of the 16th century which was the main sightseeing of this area. It attracted a lot of tourists and pilgrims. However, when the dam was built, this religious monument became at risk of flooding.
There was made a decision to tear it apart and transfer to a safe higher place. After the reconstruction, the monastery became an outstanding landmark for tourists. Mratinje Dam is located in a picturesque area. It was chosen by director of the film “The power of 10” which is dedicated to the Second World War. Today the nearby territory of the dam is full of touristic routes. The best time for visiting these marvelous places is a late spring. Next - San Roque Dam
