Piles of garbage and illegal dumps are not uncommon at Vranje picnic areas, and one of them was cleaned on Aleksandrovac Lake by a family from the Netherlands, who found themselves there on their way through Serbia.

Aleksandrovac Lake, 7-8 kilometers from Vranje, used to be a favorite destination for fishermen and nature lovers, and although it has been arranged several times, according to various technical solutions, bathing and feeding of cattle has been neglected for years.

There is always garbage in the water and on the shore of the lake, and that bothered people from the Netherlands who intended to rest there with small children in a camp vehicle.

In the photos published in Facebook group “Movement for the arrangement of Aleksandrovac Lake” it can be seen that they collected the garbage in one pile and left a message on it on the cardboard.

“Nice lake, ugly garbage. Shame on you. Respect nature, keep it clean “, wrote the Dutch.

The Movement for the Arrangement of Lake Aleksandrovac says that the ugly side, home rudeness and vulgarity of the people of Vranje can be seen in that very place, and that it goes further into the world as a collective image.

“The Dutch who were traveling with small children cleaned the shore of the lake. No more beautiful nature, no more arrogant management and less educated people. Put your finger on your forehead. People who even came from the Netherlands with small children to rest in a camping vehicle on Aleksandrovac Lake are removing your garbage from the shore and clean the shore. “Probably, in addition to information about the lake, which is nowhere to be found, they were expecting a connection for electricity and water for their vehicle, and they came across mud and garbage,” the Movement writes.

Let us remind you, the last big fish death on Aleksandrovac Lake happened at the end of 2012, and before that, in 2008, more than 1.5 tons of fish died.
