Moraca River, Podgorica

(4.6/5 based on 90 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.
