Lake Žabar came into existence through the process of gravel excavation that lasted from the mid-sixties until the end of the seventies of the past century, which is when it retained the look it has until this day.
The lake complex covers the area of 26 hectares, 19 hectares of which is water. The coasts are overgrown with grass, forests and decorative trees, while water plants such as sedges and reeds can be found in the coastal parts.
The shape of the lake resembles an oval ellipsis and the coastline is jagged: there are three large peninsulas and one island, as well as a few big bays.
The complex consists of two lakes, both of them with a high density of big carp. The main lake has 16 swims and the small one (that used to be part of the main one) only two – swims 8 and 9.
