It is the deepest canyon in Europe, and second deepest in the world after the Grand Canyon of Colorado, USA. 78km long, and up to 1.300m deep, this "tear of Europe", as it is also called, is a great natural and tourist attraction not only in the area, but in the entire country.

One of the loveliest gorges in Europe. The Tara is the deepest one in Europe - 1300 meters. Color of the water is stunning, The bridge is fascinating together with the story of constructing it and blowing it and reconstructing again. The view from the Durmitor above the Tara are exceptionally great

Great canyon with so much of adrenaline and great moments to share. River Tara is amazing as the nature that surrounds it.

Rafting in the canyon is a great experience. We did it in late June and although it was a bit chilly it's worth it! Going under the Đurđevića bridge is impressive. The deep blue of the Tara waters invites you dive in but when you remember it's only 4° C you think it twice. We took the half day tour... More

Truly awesome place, must see it. Do the zip line too! They go across the canyon. 1000m between you and the river below! The longer zip line is cool and we'll publicised but the shorter one is slightly cheaper and more exciting. Redrock zip line.

spectacular views and turquoise water, Rafting along the river or ziplining across the canyon are recommended

We went for a drive here because one of the hiking trails was frozen. We were so glad we did., €10 for a zip line that is realllly fun! lol worth the drive down the windy road. Cool bridge structure and very pretty scenery too.

... the South Europe countries I'm going to visit. There are 10 countries in total, but for now Montenegro won the 1st place. I've been in Romania many times, but Tara River Canyon can only compete with Grand Canyon ( Arizona - USA ). The landscape is so majestic, and changing every meter you walk or drive.

The bridge vibrates when lorries drive on it, scary but it's otherwise worth the trip . The views are just amazing. If you take the road to Mojkovac and drive for just 5 minutes you'll be able to be at the bottom of the Tara river and take another set of great pics
