Golem Grad island
Also known as Snake Island, is an island located in Prespa Lake.
It is about 18 hectares big and includes ancient ruins from Roman, Neolithic, and Hellenic times.
It also includes six churches and monasteries, and much more. Apart from the preserved church of St. Peter, the attention is drawn by the medieval church dedicated to St. Demetrius, as well as the early Christian basilica from the end of the 4th and the beginning of the 5th century, where remnants of a floor mosaic have been found.
It is home to many endemic plants, rare birds, and many snakes.
