Lake Rgot, or “Zaječar Sea”, as the locals call it, was created in 1978 when water began to emerge at the bottom of a quartz sand pit.

Thus, the inhabitants of the village of Rgotina, which is 11 kilometers from Zaječar, got a lake completely unexpectedly.

According to official research, next to a lake in Germany, the water from this natural reservoir is the cleanest in Europe.

The lake has an area of ​​three hectares and the greatest depth is 40 meters.

Thanks to the quartz sand, the water in the lake heats up easily, so the water temperature during the summer months is around 26 degrees.

Quartz sand helps the water to clean itself and that is why this lake is one of the cleanest. This is confirmed by the hara plant (in Greek it means joy), which grows only in crystal clear waters.

Divers love to explore the underground world of this lake because of its transparency and purity. One of them is Dr. Milan Đorđević, professor of vocational studies at the Higher Technical School in Kragujevac and a member of the diving and rescue association “PONT”.

Thanks to his video from YouTube, we have the opportunity to peek under the surface of this lake and experience its magical underground world even for a second.

The source from which the water comes is so strong that even in the driest periods of the year, the lake level remains practically unchanged.

Beneath the surface there is a rich flora and fauna, but despite this, various waste can be found at the bottom.

It’s not just plastic bottles that are a problem, there are other, bigger things too.

“I was finding wheels, a steering wheel from a truck, workers’ equipment,” Milan wrote under the video.

Lake Rgot has become a favorite swimming spot of the surrounding townspeople and a lake with huge tourist potential.

Carrying the title of the second cleanest lake in Europe is no small thing, and that’s why we have to “keep an eye” on it, so that it doesn’t happen to become a landfill overnight.
