"River Moraca" Republic of Montenegro Favorite Tip by Drphoto

Republic of Montenegro General: 33 reviews and 36 photos


Favorite thing: The source of the Moraca River lies at the base of the mount Lola, and runs into Skadar Lake close to the town of Podgorica. It is 100 km long. Together with the Tara River it is one of the rare European rivers whose waters are unpolluted and drinkable almost all the way from the source to its mouth. The Moraca flows through relief, which can best be characterized by its cruelty. The Platia canyon is famous for just this. Some parts of the canyon are more then 100m deep and its steep bluffs are inaccessible even for top flight mountain alpinists.Its exceptionally clear water shelters many species of fish, among which we must make special note of three kinds of trout, making the Moraca the target of numerous sport fishermen.
