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.

I do believe this is where they had zip lining available. Several of my friends did it and said it was well organized. A few people got stranded in the middle and they had a way to get them to the other side.

The view from the bridge is amazing. The bridge is very narrow, the sidewalk is almost non existing and you have to watch out for cars,- especially trucks! Probably dangerous with kids, but I think its breathtaking to walk over it to get a feeling for the depth of the canyon. When I crossed it, at noon in july it... More

Try to avoid the sundays when you can have excessive crowds. Along the river, there are 2 restaurants. Try to hit the one on the left side. Their bread is fantastic. Go with qualified boat guides. The river looks calm but can be tricky.

The view you have from the Tara bridge over the canyon is amazing. We hiked down until we reached the river. The water is incredibly blue. It's very quiet in the neighbourhood. Very beautiful.

So we went to see the bridge that everyone says you need to see if you're in Montenegro. Ok it's high above the canyon and it does give you an incredible view but so does so much of Montenegro. There are two zipwires across the canyon. One is 10 euros and one is 20 euros. There isn't that much difference... More

Driving from Zabljak to Tara Bridge Canyon took around 15-20min with some winding road towards the bridge area. People were walking along the bridge from one end to another. We did the same and it's somewhat dangerous because the shoulder was quite narrow. The view was quite different from the village in Zabljak, worth visiting. Btw, there's a paid toilet... More

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
