IN JUST A FEW HOURS:

Ascend into the past

A few hours will be enough to sink deep into the extraordinary atmosphere of the region which looks as if it is infinitely far away from the capital city.

Medun

Although it was constructed as an Illyrian fortress, Medun became a town. It survived the arrivals of the Romans, Slavs and Turks. In Medun, there is the house, now a memorial museum, where Marko Miljanov (1833-1901) – a legendary warrior and a writer – was born. Podgorica and its entire surroundings can be clearly seen from Medun.

The Cijevna Canyon and the Prokletije Mountains

Koritakučka (or Koritahotska) is a plateau where former summer pastures stretch before you. Today, it is more of a weekend settlement. From the fantastic place called Grlosokolovo (Falcon’s Throat), take a look right into the explosion of the powerful canyon of the River Cijevna, daughter of Prokletije’s snows.

Winding descent

A beautiful, roughly thirty-kilometre-long descent towards Podgorica begins from Korita. The winding asphalt will lead you through the villages of Deljaj and Stjepovo, and then it will take you to new viewpoints above the Cijevna Canyon. Then you will descend into the capital of Montenegro through Doljane.
