    Brief synopsis

    It is one of the three southern European peninsulas and 500,000 square kilometres in size: the Balkan Peninsula. Poetically, it forms the geographical border between the Occident and the Orient. Its name refers to its natural wealth: BALKAN - "MOUNTAINS WITH MANY FORESTS". In fact, the Balkan Peninsula is a treasure trove of ecological diversity. Its hidden wealth: an abundance of national and nature parks - from Slovenia to Greece. From the Alps to the sea.

    Like Montenegro. Land of black mountains and dark forests. In its rugged mountain landscape you will find 5 canyons - and the deepest gorge in Europe. Here lies one of the last primeval forests as well as the largest freshwater lake of the Balkan Peninsula.

    The Durmitor. Celtic: "mountains of many waters". It is the largest of the 5 national parks of Montenegro. 48 of the 50 peaks form its mountain massif. Between this rugged karst mountain range duck 18 mountain and glacial lakes.

    In the Biogradska Gora National Park, filmmaker Jeremy JP Fekete visits one of the last "real" primeval forests in Europe. It reaches up to 2000 meters above sea level, where it is home to deer and bears. In the middle of it all - the Biogradska Jezero. This elongated glacial lake only reaches a depth of about six metres, but is nestled by some of the oldest trees from all over Europe. Trees up to 500 years old thrive here, reaching a gigantic 45 metres in height.

    The Salina is part of the Buna Delta, which together with Lake Skadar is considered one of the most biodiverse areas in the Mediterranean as well as Europe. One as a freshwater, the other as a saltwater biotope. Home to a rich flora and fauna as well as numerous amphibians, reptiles and unique plants. For example, the glasswort or the Queller, plants that only grow in high saline soil. Basis for nesting and sheltering places for many birds and other animals.
