Water Body Nature / Park
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.

  • If you stay in Podgorica you will definitely come across the Moraca river several times. It has strong currents and runs below with its green water. It is hard not to take too many pictures  more »
