Another place on the Skadar lake that deserves the travelers’ attention is Karuc. To get to the town, one can take the Podgorica-Cetinje road and turn left at the same exit for the town of Rijeka Crnojevic. Once the exit is cleared just follow the clearly marked signs to this beautify, small and ancient fishing town on the lake. The road is very narrow here and deserves the drivers’ full attention during the 30 to 40 minute drive to town. Along the way a wooden dock with steps of stone have been placed to the shore, and depending upon the water level a small barbeque area is available along the right side of the shore. Upon arrival at the shore the visitor is encouraged to take a little walk up the hill and turn left down the pathway trough the thick brush and rocks, upon which a clearing can be seen popularly used for barbequing and family time. Behind this clearing, thru some more rocks, the ruins of the old buildings are located, from which breathtaking view of the lake should not be missed. During the summer months a restaurant serving local seafood specialties and homemade wine, is open. There is another, smaller restaurant open year around also all in stone and wood where the staff is very helpful and friendly, and can tell a few legends of the people of this region.
