Sometimes you just want to see beautiful water! Lake Badovcit is close, big, and really nice. It is a big reservoir, but in the summer months you will see people fishing and swimming and hiking. Kids can throw rocks, catch fish and frogs, and wade in. Who could ask for a better day? Bring a picnic lunch and make an afternoon of it.
Driving Directions: (~20 minutes) Starting at U.S. Embassy Bravo gate, take a right to go down the hill and take a right onto the main road (Ahmet Krasniqi). At the first circle, go around and take the last option, toward Ferizaj (Viva Fresh/Maxi). At the next circle, take the second option to continue straight through the circle (M2/E65). Stay straight until you pass Albi Mall on the left hand side. Take the exit onto the M25-2 toward Gjilian (as if going to Viva Fresh/Albi Mall). At the end of the exit ramp, take a right to go under the highway. Go straight past Viva Fresh. When the road forks a little, stay to the right. Continue through Gracanica. As you drive past Gracanica a few km, you will see the lake on your left hand side. There are trails down to the lake. Find a convenient spot to park and trek down to the water.
