About Piva Lake and the canyon of the Piva River


The Piva River springs from the Sinjac spring at Golija. Its flow passes through the magnificent mountains, making a spectacular canyon of altitude up to 1300m and length of about 33km, on which river creates the extraordinary power used for the construction of the hydroelectric power plant Mratinje.HPP Mratinje was built from 1967 to 1975 and her  impressive altitude of, 220 m is ranked among the highest dam in Europe. The construction of the dam, as well as the creation of artificial Piva Lake, which today represents the largest drinking water reservoir in the Balkans, completely sank a small town Plužine, as well as Piva monastery. The town was rebuilt near the lake and the Piva Monastery, a stone by stone, was moved to a new location where it is still located today. The lake, with its emerald-green color, marvelous nature and the magnificent Piva Canyon, is one of the most beautiful locations in this region.
