The Lokve Lake is an artificial body of water created when the Lokvarka River was stopped from 1952 to 1955. The new 40-metre deep lake covered a green valley with a settlement and 3 sawmills, and several kilometres of the popular Lujzijana road, built in 1805.
Today it is a touristic attraction and a favourite among recreational visitors. It is also popular with fishermen, as it is rich in trout, carp and other species of fish. The largest river trout in the world was caught in this lake in 1973, weighing an incredible 25.4 kilogrammes.
The lake is located near the Lokve town, whose name in Croatian refers to puddles.
