Though it is located in the “heart of the lake” Pesacac is still its intact part. The beach is dominated by authentic restaurant made of stone and wood with the details from traditional Montenegrin architecture for whose construction entire material was brought with small boats.
On this beautiful area which is owned by NP Skadar lake project Pesacac began after the removal of sanctions to SRJ. I got a temporary permit for a facility which was built from the ground and which was additionally built for 9 years, and in 1995 we had first foreign guests here – Israelis who came through Belgrade Putnik and its former director Mirjana Stankovic. Agency R Tours from Moscow was the first to direct its guests directly here. Now we work from April to November, and 99% of excursionists are foreigners who come through agencies Kompas, Globtur, Odisej, Soncek, Kolegijum, – says Vukasevic who is successfully continuing a three decades old business on the lake.
To Pesacac you can come through agency arrangements, and the excursion last from 10 to 15 hours. From Virpazar a boat which has 50 seats, or smaller boats with 20 to 30 seats leave and all passengers who get on the boat are treated as a welcome note with fried pastry (priganice) and goat’s cheese. The round over the lake lasts for an hour including the swimming in the open. After docking in excursionists are received with smile and high quality service and with a buffet table which is full of food and drink and all of that costs 20 euros.
