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 were on a business trip and I didn't even think about bringing my swimsuit wih me although it was summer! I strongly recommend doing the otherwise. You can spare sometime in the morning and enjoy the clean and quiet water of Moraca river.

We stumbled across a group of people enjoying the river and listening to music. Gutted we didn't have our swimsuit or towels, especially as it was 38 degrees!

Coming from Peje in Kosovo, we followed the river for about 50 km before arriving in Podgorica. The river is still fairly small over here but the canyon like shaping of the landscape up river is absolutely fenomenal.

The river gets low in the summer as you would expect but that leaves small pools on the side with little self contained worlds to explore tiny trout minnows and snails and micro miniature shrimp if you stare ling enough to see them. As dusk...More

If you stay in Podgorica you will definitely come across the Moraca river several times. It has strong currents and runs below with its green water. It is hard not to take too many pictures

Morača is an awesome river. Amazing color and clarity of water. To pass her without stopping has never happened to me. No matter how much I'm in a hurry I dedicate at least ten - fifteen minutes to this beauty. She accompanies you on the...More

The view is amazing! You can see the canyon from the road if you go by car or by bus, but it's even more thrilling to see it from the railroad if you take the train from Podgorica to Kolashin. The river and the mountains...More
