Owner description: The symbol of Podgorica and also the greatest river flowing through the Capital. Its deep riverbed, large rocks and icy temperatures are just some of the main characteristics of this mountain river. On its way through the Capital, Moraca also carved out many caves. It is 113 kilometres long, and it runs from north to south, flowing into the Skadar Lake.

We caught a bus from Belgrade to Podgorica and the last 70 km from Kolasin follows the Moraca river. The scenery is stunning my only regret is that I couldn't take any photos due to being the bus, there are however plenty of view points for anyone lucky enough to drive this road and be able to stop.

It´s not easy to find in the Europe a place which is so pure and natural. You nearly don´t believe it´s real, especially how clear the water is.
I recommend to take the train/car/bus from Podgorica to Kolašin and enjoy a trip through the valley of this river. It´s an exceptional experience.

The Moraca river is greatest river in Podgorica. It streams through whole city, and it also spreads to the north and makes a very beautiful canyon. The Moraca canyon is miracle of nature, it's very deep canyon and surrounded with big mountains and beautiful forest. The road to the north of our country goes along the river through canyon. If you go along this road you cant missed to visit the Moraca Monastery. This is a small monastery but very beautiful inside, it placed on extraordinary location and it has a remarkable view.

I'm here to describe the Moraca monastyr rather than the river itself. The monastyr has a very interesting history (it's one of the best known medieval monuments in Montenegro) and it's really beautiful inside. The entrance costs €2 and you can buy a candle to light inside. Near the monastyr there's a stand where you can also buy traditional products from the local farmers.

The Morača canyon is a worthy competitor to the Tara canyon and it has a hidden pearl, the monastery of the same name on the Mojkovac-Podgorica road along the river. It has a lovely setting and an amazing old chapel with frescoes depicting saints and scenes from the Bible. The garden is well kept and pleasant and in the backyard is a collection of colourful and busy beehives. A very nice place for a pause when travelling down the canyon. There are food-stalls and souvenir shops at a decent distance from the entry.
