Another shallow body of water lies on the other side of Palić, also a brief drive from Subotica. Where Palić is touristy, Ludaš Lake is a serene nature reserve.

The lake is all about nature-spotting and quiet walks and bike rides. On the lake’s shores are a few isolated villages, arable farms, water meadows and woodland. And this broad variety of habitats attracts dazzling birdlife, and 140 of the 214 species counted at the lake are endangered.


Ludaš lake is a complex of wetlands containing open water surfaces, reeds, and early types of grass communities. Steppe lake Ludaš, with the size of 328 hectares is unique in Serbia. Its shallow trough was formed by the work of winds at the touch of the sandstone and the wooden plateau.
