It's a nice place, but unfortunately not well maintained. It is located in a beautiful area, but is notorious carelessness. The first lake is still clean, but the second lake is already being polluted. Still a nice place to visit.

Lake Kleptuza is beautiful, you can take a ride in one of the boats! If you go up the mountain/hill there is a monestary high up which is very unique and worth a visit.
