Rijeka Crnojevica is situated in one of the most picturesque parts of Skadar Lake and represents an ancient trading route. There is an iconic stone bridge, known as Danilo’s Bridge at the entrance to the small riverside town.
Erected on the top of the Obod Hill overlooking the Crnojevica River are the remains of a monastery and fortress built by the medieval ruler of Zeta Ivan Crnojevic to protect the town from Turkish invasion.
He was the first to introduce the innovation of print to the Southeastern Europe. The Obod printing house published the first ever Slavic book Oktoih prvoglasnik in 1949. This idyllic town is an appealing canvas of well-preserved facades, as well as the remains of Montenegro’s first pharmacy and weapons workshop.
The tour begins at Virpazar, leading through untouched natural reserves, passing floating plants and lily pads, a lotus-lined carpet adorning the lake waters, with spectacular bird sightings along the way. The tour includes a walk, lunch stop and swimming break.
