Moraca River, Podgorica

4.6
#1 of 7 in Parks in Podgorica
Drive through the canyon of Moraca River, and enjoy the contrast between the steep, dark cliffs that are partially covered in thick woods and the light-green river. The highway runs along the edge of the narrow gorge, which is particularly picturesque in the segment between Podgorica and Kolasin. Visit a small, 13th-century monastery founded by a king of Zeta in the northern part of the canyon. South of Podgorica, the river flows through a plain until it empties into Lake Skadar. Note that the north road has been the site of many traffic accidents in the past, so take special care driving here.

  • I spent a lot of time on and in this river. Definitely I will recommend everybody to go on Moraca if you are in Podgorica, specially during summer time. Just drive 20-30 minutes north of Podgorica.  more »
  • As it turns out, the river Moraca Hall, most of the water in Lake scutari, never dries up. A lot of beautiful and interesting things we learned about the river and Canyon eki from Morachi Guide (Oleg Blashkuna) which we were accompanied by excursions to the canyons of Montenegro. Morača River Canyon is included in this tour.
