Lake Prespa lies south-east of the famous Lake Ohrid, in the south-west of Macedonia. The two lakes are separated by the Galicica National Park.

Golem Grad is a beautiful uninhabited island in Lake Prespa. It is rich in flora and fauna, such as pelicans.

Golem Grad means Big Town, but the island is also called Zmiski Ostrov, meaning Snake Island. Indeed, many snakes can be seen on the island.

Although you are free to navigate around the island by boat, all visits to the island have to be agreed with the administration of the Galicica National Park.

Follow the link below to my Golem Grad page and tips for more information.
