The picturesque, natural lake Morské oko (Sea Eye), called Great Vihorlat Lake in the past, and located in the deep beech forests of the Vihorlat Mountains is a reminder of a volcanic activity of the mountains, and is unparalleled among the volcanic mountains in Europe!
The formation of the lake Morské oko falls within a period of volcanic activity in the region. A massive landslide on the eastern slopes of Motrogon and Jedlinka blocked the valley of the brook Okna, and behind this barrier a natural lake arose. Morské oko is situated at an altitude of 618 m (2,027 ft). Its length is about 750 m (820 yd), depth is 25-28 m (82-88 ft), and is fed by 6 streams and several periodic flows. The excess water from the lake is lead away by the brook Okna.
There is a path leading around the lake which line its shores, and takes about an hour to walk. Visitors can choose a challenging 4 km (2.5 km) route with an elevation of 400 m (1,312 ft) to Snina Rock. This trip is rewarded by a spectacular view on the landscape of the valley of Cirocha, Vihorlat forests (Vihorlatské lesy) and Východoslovenská nížina (Eastern Slovakian Lowland).
Boating, swimming and fishing are prohibited!
