Mrtvica and Morača

Originating under the Maganik Mountain and collecting water from various mountain streams, the Mrtvica River forms a large torrent flowing for 10 kilometers. Along its path, it creates one of the most beautiful canyons in Southeast Europe, measured at over 1,100 meters.

One of the highlights of the canyon is the stone bridge of Prince Danilo II that dates back to the 19th century. The Montenegrin prince built the bridge in honor of his mother who was born in the area. Deep in the canyon, the river has sculpted the Gates of Desire, a natural passageway formed between two rocks. According to legend, if you throw a stone in the river without making a sound and make a wish, it will come true. Another natural feature of the Mrtvica River is the Baths of Aphrodite, where its turquoise waters fill a natural stone basin.

Amongst the many natural spectacles that the river offers, the most spectacular is the biodiversity it supports. Its waters are rich in fish, especially brown trouts and graylings, while the surrounding forests offer shelter for many other animal species like chamois, wild boars, brown bears, and wolves.

The Mrtvica River is one of the most pristine rivers in Montenegro. To protect its natural beauty and geological and biological diversity, our partners from Eco-Team have started the process of protecting the Mrtvica River, preserving the incredible natural and social potential of this river.
