Lake Črno jezero

Lake Črno jezero

The peat moor with its small lakes is one of the most attractive natural sights on Pohorje.

Lake Črno jezero lies between Osankarica and Veliki vrh at1200 m above sea level. The lake is overgrown with pine and peat moss. For years and years organic waste from dead plants and animals has accumulated at the bottom of the lake and over the course of time created a thick layer of silt, which is a dark, black colour. Due to this the lake looks as though it is full of ink, although the water is crystal clear. Crno jezero, with its forest surroundings, is protected as a forest reserve. From the Trije Kralji Ski Resort, walk in the direction of the Črno Jezero Lake, to the Osankarica Hut and to the battlefield of the Pohorje Battalion.
