Description

Lesedro is an island and fortress in Lake Skadar in Montenegro. It is located near the town of Vranjina. The fortress was built in the 18th century. It is located on a peninsula that was an island until the Belgrade – Bar railway was built. During the reign of Bishop Petar II Petrović-Njegoš, it served as a defense against Turkish attacks and ensured undisturbed fishing and trade. Bishop Petar II rebuilt the fortress and strengthened the walls because Rašid Pasha of Skadar accused the Montenegrins of espionage and executed eight Crmničans who came to Skadar to trade. The bishop himself often came here to rest. Lesandro was under Montenegrin administration for 11 years. In 1843, Osman Pasha occupied Skopljak, the Pasha of Skadar, at the same time as Vranjina Lessandro, and the Turks built their fortifications there. The island was liberated in 1878 together with the fortress town of Žabljak in Crnojević and annexed to the Principality of Montenegro.
