Drive through the canyon of Morača River, and enjoy the contrast between the steep, dark cliffs that are partially covered in thick woods and the light-green river. The highway runs along the edge of the narrow gorge, which is particularly picturesque in the segment between Podgorica and Kolasin. Visit a small, 13th-century monastery founded by a king of Zeta in the northern part of the canyon. South of Podgorica, the river flows through a plain until it empties into Lake Skadar. Note that the north road has been the site of many traffic accidents in the past, so take special care driving here.

Beautiful canyon which road is following with many tunnels and then going up to the mountains covered in mist. Road should be better maintained and renovated but it is also amazing to see what was done in the past without modern technology.
