Our route will pass through the Tara River canyon - the longest one in Montenegro. The river is the largest reservoir of drinking water in Europe, can be drunk without further purification. Tara Canyon is the largest one in Europe and second largest in the world: its length is 82 km, and a depth is 3.3 km. The river has become a popular destination for white water rafting. Numerous rapids, waterfalls and islands make it possible to obtain unforgettable feelings from the journey. But the main architectural attraction of the canyon is Dzhurdzhevicha bridge – a unique five-arched design 365 m in length, one of the highest road bridge in Europe, situated at an altitude of 172 m above the river.
After a short stop at the monastery Moraca, which was built in the XII century, we will visit the town of Zabljak, which is located at an altitude of 1456 m and is one of the highest cities in the Balkan Peninsula and is very popular with fans of winter outdoor activities. But in the summer life doesn’t stop there: hiking trails, paved among the verdant slopes and alpine meadows, clean air and a pleasant coolness always attract the admirers. In 2 kilometers away from the city there is the best known of the 18 glacier lakes in the region - the Black Lake, which area is 516 km2. The water is so clear that you can see the depth of 9 m.
Lifehack: one can take a boat trip on the Black Lake, enjoying the amazing beauty of the landscape. The cost of it is € 8 per hour.
The heady air of high mountains, stunning views of mountain peaks covered with snow, rich colors of forests will leave vivid memories and a desire to return to these places again.
