At its mouth into the Adriatic the Bojana FPL: ZZZZ N415102 E0192200 forms a small delta with two arms, the left one forming the border with Albania, and the right one, with the island between the arms, being part of Montenegro. The island is called Ada Bojana, Ada the Turkish word for “island”, has found its way into the Montenegrin language. It was supposedly formed around a ship’s wreck in the 19th century, and now covers an area of 6 km2, and is Montenegro’s largest island.
Despite being short, the river has quite a large watershed, covering 5,187 km², because the whole drainage area of the Skadarsko Jezero, the largest lake in southeastern Europe, is also part of it.
