At the foothill of Crni Vrh mountain, 17 kilometers from Bor, mountain watercourses were captured by a dam in 1959. This human decision was accepted by nature as its own. One of the tourist pearls of the Bor municipality – Bor Lake was thus created. At an altitude of 438 meters, a smooth surface of 30 hectares of lake water, mirrors the picturesque and sumptuous beauty of surrounding areas.
The crystal clear lake water gets dark green in the summer months and its surface layer reaches a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, which makes it extremely pleasant for swimming. Slightly indented and picturesque coastline with well-arranged beaches, recreational and walking paths, sports fields and other facilities beside a good resting place also provides sports, recreational, excursion and cultural events and activities, thus making the Bor Lake one of the most attractive tourist destinations in this part of Serbia.
