Hardly anyone who doesn't know, would think that Piva Lake is artificial. However, the lake, which covers an area of 12.5 square kilometers and reaches a length of 45 kilometers, was created in 1976. for the needs of the hydroelectric power plant "Piva" and the partitioning of the Piva canyon. At that time, new Plužine was built, the inhabitants moved out of the old - the first Plužine "up above the bay", but the memories remained. Almost all buildings were demolished before the sinking, except for the Piva Monastery (built between 1573 and 1586) which was moved , stone by stone, for 13 years to a new higher location.
Piva lake is the biggest artificial lake in Montenegro. Piva boat tours include a relaxing cruise across the lake, with swimming breaks and a cave visit.
