Okrugljak Lake (Jezero Okrugljak)

Okrugljak jezero (Okrugljak Lake)  also known as Okrugljaj and Kruginovac is the third highest lake in the whole lake system, located on an altitude of 613 meters above the sea level.

It covers the total area of just over 4 hectares with a max depth of 15 meters at its southern shores, right at the very bottom of Labudovačka barijera. The total length of the lake is 260 meters while the total width is just over 100 meters. The lake belongs to the group of Plitvice Upper Lakes.

Okrugljak got its name after ‘okruglo‘ which in Croatian means ‘rounded‘ (having smooth and curved edges).

The lake is fed by waters from the 7 meters high waterfall from Ciginovac lake, located on the north-west shores of the lake.

The shores of the lake are bordered by barriers and low vegetation as well as by some trees that are reflected in the waters.

The waters around here are of lighter green / turquoise colours, especially in the summertime. In the other parts of the year, the waters reflect the colours of the leaves and surroundings. (see autumn and spring in the lakes photos). You can stroll on a wooden walkway and wooded paths around the whole lake.

The end of the lake, its southern part, is formed as a low barrier where waters flow down into Veliko jezero.
