Tara canyon is listed in the book of records as the deepest in Europe and the second highest in the world after the Grand Canyon of the USA. Below flows the river of the same name, the flow of which in summer is majestic and measured. In spring, full-flowing Tara noisily carries its waters through the mouth, which was formed over millions of years in the rock.

Along the way, they will take a look on Skadar and Black Lakes with a guide, visit local churches, and immerse themselves in their distinctive, pacifying atmosphere. Local religious buildings are widely known outside of Montenegro. There are still monks living over there but not so many of them. It is believed that the Moraca canyon is more picturesque. Here, more natural beauty, more expressive line of mountains, brighter greens. However, in these places, tourists are offered only a quiet rest and contemplation of the surroundings. But the canyon of the river Tara in Montenegro is a real find for extreme lovers, who simply walk along the bridge and see the natural beauty a little. There is a turbulent river, Dzhurdzhevicha bridge and Zip line. You can go rafting and assess the coolness of the rapids. Zip line – several strong ropes of different lengths.

Today the city is transformed and modernized. Tourists can see all the fun from the Millennium bridge. It divides Podgorica into two parts — the old and the new.

The temple complex is an ideal place for pilgrimage excursions, it is recommended to choose one of these later.
