Budva - Monastery of Moraca
The road from the coast to the monastery will take 1.5-2 hours. The path runs through the mountains, and after Podgorica - through the canyons of rivers, where you want to stop every 500 meters and look at everything around.

 

Moraca Monastery was founded in 1252, and contemporaries consider it an important medieval monument on the Balkan Peninsula. The monastery is located in the canyon of the Tara River, surrounded on all sides by mountains and immersed in lush greenery. For me, this is a peculiar place of power: calm and silence reign here, which fill with energy and fully recharge.

 

Take a walk around the territory, look into the garden with rose bushes, drink water in a small source. It is believed that the water is healing, so that locals and tourists pick it up in bottles and take it with them. There is also a small apiary and sold monastery honey. If you wish, you can chat with the priest and put candles, and after a walk, have a cold drink in a small wooden cafe.

 

Moraca Monastery - Biogradska Gora Park
All along the same picturesque road, through the city of Kolasin, you will go to the Biogradska Gora National Park. If you are already hungry, stop by at Kolasin and have a bite to eat in the Savardak restaurant - a small, cozy establishment in the form of a yurt. They cook national food and traditional northern kachamak - a hearty dish based on potatoes and corn grits. After such a “refueling”, you can safely send further and explore national parks and lakes.

 

Pride of the park - Biogradskoe Lake, located   in the natural intermountain hollow above sea level. This lake is considered the largest among the other six lakes of the park.An hour is enough to explore the place, admire nature and even ride a small boat.

 

Park "Biogradska Gora" - Dzhurdzhevich's bridge
The road from Lake Biogradsky to the bridge will take about an hour. This is one of the famous tourist places, but the charm from this does not become less. Dzhurdzhevich’s bridge hovers over the Tara River at an altitude of 172 meters. Perhaps this is the best observation deck on the canyon and the azure mountain river. When you stand in the middle of the bridge on the pedestrian zone and look around, it is completely breathtaking: there is an abyss beneath you, and there are vast expanses and a forest that goes into the distance.

 

Extreme lovers can ride a zip line - fly over the Tara canyon on a steel rope from one river bank to another. There will be enough impressions for a long time!If you prefer to calmly contemplate the beautiful, sit in a cafe with a view of the bridge and refresh yourself with dessert.
