Silver Lake

Silver Lake

Silver Lake is an oxbow lake along the right Danube bank near the town of Veliko Gradište. It is a popular tourist resort.

The lake has an arch shape, it is 14 kilometers long, up to 300 meters wide and covers an area of 4 km². The water is clear due to the lack of pollution and the natural filtration of the water through many sand dunes. The lake is abundant in fish, including white amur, carp, catfish, pike, perch and other freshwater whitefish.

Fishing poles and kayak paddles are waiting for you. In addition, the Danubia Park Hotel operates a large waterpark right next to the playing hall!
