Moraca River, Podgorica
(4.6/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
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. Take a look at our Podgorica itinerary planner to schedule your visit to Moraca River and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
