Canyons in Montenegro
Moraca is a river in Montenegro. It originates in northern Montenegro, under Rzača mountain. It generally flows southwards for some 113 km (70 mi), before emptying into Lake Skadar.
In its northern part, the Morača is a fast mountain river, and cuts a canyon north of Podgorica. After merging with its largest tributary,Zeta, just north of Podgorica, the Morača enters the Zeta plain. It flows through this flat area of Montenegro until it empties into Skadar Lake.
Unforgettable journey through the canyon of the Moraca
The Morača is a relatively small river, rarely more than 100 m (330 ft) wide and mostly shallow, so it is generally not navigable. Its canyon is a corridor for the main road leading from Montenegro’s coast and Podgorica to northern Montenegro and Serbia. This road is considered very dangerous, and will likely be bypassed in future by a motorway which is currently being planned.
The Morača River is considered one of the symbols of Podgorica, and is the biggest river that flows through the city. It is featured on some flags and country symbols.
- Moraca Monastery is located in the valley of the Morača River in Kolašin, central Montenegro. It was founded in 1252 by Stefan Vukanović, of the Nemanjić dynasty. It is one of the best known medieval monuments of Montenegro.

The lakes are connected with a narrow strait, which dries up during the summer, thus creating two separate waterbodies.
