Lake Kerkini is a wonderful lake and also a major wetland of Greece. I had the chance to visit the area a few days ago! The place is really a natural paradise, although the lake is artificial. It was built in 1932, with a barrier created on the river Strymon. In 1982 a new dam was built.
The lake is a protected wetland and is part of the European Network “Natura 2000”
In recent years a lot of tourist discover this region especially these who are nature lovers and birdwatching funs.
