Why is this lake so special?
The shape of this lake and surrounding cliffs, that are 4 m to 24 m high, are just the tip of the iceberg.
Aldo this lake has no visible surface connection with the sea scientist found solid evidence that freshwater from the lake and sea mix through the limestone. That is one of the reasons why so many animals and plants decided to live in the dragon’s lake. Jellyfishes, fishes and even turtles inhabit this lake. Lake got its name thanks to the ecliptic shape, color, and chemical properties.
Every couple of years all the animals from the lake run away to the sea.
That is strange on its own but after animals go away water in the lake starts a process similar to boiling.
The dragon sleeps under the bottom of the lake so now and then it moves a little and spits some fire. He does that to warn the people of Rogoznica to stay humble despite the fact they live in one of the most beautiful bays on Croatian coast.
