Moraca River, Podgorica

4.5
#2 of 9 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.

  • Nice place. I was with my friends for traveland it was a very beautiful place .definitely I will visit again  more »
  • The actual gorge is relatively short and depending on what you have already seen, may be clear for some disappointment, but the excursion with its own (rental) car is recommended even in less good weather. The monastery Moraca shortly after Jasenova is really worth a visit and suitable as a reversal point, as the onward journey to Kolasin no longer brings highlights
