very good!!!
We were excited to visit this place to the how the hydroelectric power plant worked. Our guide took us around explaining every step to the end. It was amazing to learn how electricity reaches our homes.
The lake was an amazing tour and had very nice views. I loved sitting on the shore and just looking far beyond at how vast the lake was. The breeze was also warm and chilling there was very relaxing
The lake is a man - made lake which has a hydroelectric power plant for generating electricity. The view of the water especially that of the sun rays on the water giving it a different colour was awesome. The tour at this artificial lake was educative.
I visited the common grave and the monument to more than three hundred people near Vaganac and paid my respect to the fallen souls.I attended a church service at st. Ilije and the sermon was so touching. I was amazing chilling in this place.
This artificial lake is amazing. I enjoyed learning about its history and seeing how hydroelectric power is produced. By the lake one could spend some quality time with family especially on a weekend. The environment was so peaceful.
