Boat trip to Golem Grad island

Golem Grad, also known as Snake Island, is a mesmerizing gem nestled in the Macedonian part of Lake Prespa. This enchanting island exudes an unparalleled beauty that captivates all who set foot upon its shores. With its lush greenery, rugged cliffs, and pristine waters, Golem Grad is a paradise for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike. Beyond its breathtaking landscapes, this island holds significant importance as a biosphere reserve.
