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.

worth a trip, try the white water rafting or zip lining

the waters are so clean and clear that you can drink from the river there are a few cafes around but none too special try the rafting or ziplining!

It is very impressive to see the canyon. If you drive up to Bobotov Kuk, you can take a way at your right. On the end of that way you can see intomthe canyon. Beautifull. It is an amazing view. The river is very calm this time of the year. I think it is always calm this season. But the... More

We e travelling widely in Montenegro and decided to stay near the. Canyon. Luckily we found a room next the Tara Bridge and walked the area which is unbelievably beautiful. We were lucky as the weather was fine. Not sure you would see much in poor weather. Drive by the canyon, perhaps take a raft, amazing.

Passed high above the gorge on coach but the view was pretty impressive. At this time of the year the water level is quite low.But the autumnal leaves in the trees are beautiful and the late afternoon mist gives it a mystical atmosphere.

Just stopping and looking from the bridge down - is a must!! we made a little more: 1) There are a few companies that operate the rafting. Most offer a rafting + way back in a jeep + launch. 45 euro per person. The rafting is nice: The color of the water is stunning. The canyon is beautiful. It's a... More

It was just a fleeting visit. A look see and carry on. The bridge is an interesting construction and the activities surrounding it would be a good day of adventure. Spectacular scenery too.

Great Views of the canyon. Interesting to read about its history inscribed on the monument to its builder, which is just to the left of the bridge. Arrive early to avoid the coach tours.

Great views from different point along the road from Zabljak to Podgorica. Special mention to the Tara Bridge, which is not only located superbly bridging the canyon, but is also a remarkable engineering achievment!
