We`ll continue our way along the water area of the lake, and we`ll get to the place of Pavlova Strana, from here the most recognizable view of the bend of the river opens – a visit card of the local nature. We`ll arrive at the famous Rijeka Crnojevica, the place of another capital of old Zeta, where the first Cyrillic printing house – Obod – was located.
