Zaovine Lake lies at the altitude of 892 meters, and the water is pumped up from Perućac Lake that is 600 meters below.

The dam was built here on the White Rzav river and most of the houses were either flooded or moved at the time. The lake is nowadays almost 80 meters deep.

Its beautiful dark blue water gives marvelous reflections and swimmers are always flocking to one of its beaches to cool down during hot summer days.
