Niagara is one of the loudest waterfalls in Montenegro. Local people named it after American Niagara waterfall. In contrast to its famous namesake, Montenegrin "Niagara" is much smaller, but quite broad, beautiful and fast (especially when flood), located in an easily accessible place for any local person or tourist. In fact, this "reduction" of Niagara waterfall makes good on Montenegrin nature. The waterfall is located not far away from Podgorica, in a few kilometers from Cem river (Cijevna) flows into Morača river.
Cem river originates in Prokletije, Albania, flows into Morača river and continues its way in Skadar lake. Cem is a small river, its depth does not exceed 10 meters. Though the decision was taken to build a dam, which created waterfall. The dam was built to the south of Podgorica and a small water storage reservoir was created. Overflowing the dam, water falls from 10 meters height.
After a while, water has made its way through the rocks and created one main waterfall and some smaller side waterfalls. When Cem river starts flowing from both sides, waterfall provides the bright impression during snow melting or heavy rain. You can enjoy this view sitting on the bench or at the restaurant located near waterfall. By the way, the restaurant creates an additional attractiveness as a tourist spot. The restaurant is designed in country style. Here you can try fresh caught fish and many delicious local dishes.
