How many of Europe's biggest lakes have you seen?

Love Exploring Logo By Hannah Foster-Roe of Love Exploring | Slide 1 of 23: They may be considered “fun-size” in comparison to the Great Lakes of Africa and America, but Europe's ​vast natural-made bodies of water are spectacular in their own right. Many were borne out of the last Ice Age, with the majority found in the Baltic region and a handful scattered across alpine areas in central and southern parts of the continent. Given current events, we at loveEXPLORING would not feel comfortable promoting travel to Russia right now. Therefore, please note that some lakes have been omitted from this list, as a mark of respect to our Ukrainian readers. Read on to discover more about Europe’s largest lakes (in ascending order), and remember to check COVID-19 protocols before you travel.

Big, blue, and beautiful
