These edges were noticed by Prince Nicola, ordering in 1878 the intensive protection of these places. After that, the Biograd Forest became a protected area, it is often called the Princely Reserve. But the status of the national park was received only in 1952. On the lands of the park, one of the few untouched European forests has survived. The age of some trees is more than ten centuries, embroidered at 50 meters.

The heart of the national park is Lake Biograd - a unique decoration of these places. Local residents call it the mirror of the Biograd Forest, since everything around is imprinted in its depth. The lake is located on a low-lying plain with an altitude of 1,094 meters at the very foot of the Bright Mountains at an altitude of 1,094 meters. The lake came from glaciers. The length of the lake is approximately 2000 meters, and the width is 200 meters. The centuries-old trees reflected in it complement the unique and inspiring picture. There is a large amount of trout in the lake and the rivers around it.
