Silver Lake is an artificial lake, 14 km in length, located near Veliko Gradište. It was created when one branch of the Danube was closed on both sides for protection from underground waters, thus creating one of the most popular tourist destinations in Serbia. The sunlight reflecting on the water creates silver-like sparkles, and that is how the lake got its name. Well-kept beaches, a long promenade and the clear water attract tourists in good weather. A large number of cafes and restaurants on the shore make this area very lively during warm summer days.
