Thank you... Ich danke Dir, dass ich durch Deine Augen die Schönheit meiner Heimat wieder neu entdecken darf! Ich wusste immer schon, dass dies hier ein besonders schöner Flecken Erde ist, bin aber durch die Gewohnheit blind für das Detail geworden! (Stichwort: Alpenglühen!) Dein Blick des Entdeckers hat auch in mir neue, - alte (?), Perspektiven wachgerufen! Danke

Faaker See (Lake)

Lake Faak or Faaker See (German: Faaker See, Slovene: Baško jezero) is an alpine lake in the Austrian state of Carinthia. With an area of approximately 2.2 km², it is the state's fifth-largest lake. Lake Faak is a popular vacation and swimming destination, known for its clear turquoise water. Fishing, especially for whitefish (German: Reinanke), is also quite popular. The lake is located south of Villach and the Drava River at the northern slope of the Karawanks mountain range. The settlements of Drobollach and Egg on the northern shore belong to the City of Villach. The village of Faak to the southwest, after which the lake is named, is part of the municipality of Finkenstein.

In 1855, Lake Faak inspired the Slovene composer and priest Franc Treiber to compose the song "Nmav čez izaro" (Over the Lake), which soon became one of the best-known Slovene folk songs, and even now it is considered the unofficial anthem of Carinthian Slovenes. (Source: Wikipedia)
