The island "Grmožur"

The fortress on the island Grmožur was formerly built by the Turks, however, had already been conquered a few years later by the Montenegrins.

Shortly thereafter, she was transformed into a prison.

Here, King Nikola I. imprisoned political opponents - primarily non-swimmers.

Therefore, the island is known to locals as well as the "Montenegrin Alcatraz".

Today, the island, as well as the entire Skadar Lake, is an important breeding ground for native birds as well as resting and breeding place for migratory birds from Northern Europe.
