General info 

Rijeka Crnojevića is situated in one of the most picturesque parts of Skadar Lake and is part of an ancient trading route.  It is famous for its iconic stone bridge, known as Danilo’s Bridge at the entrance to the small riverside town.

On top of Obod Hill you will find remains of a monastery and fortress, built by the medieval ruler Ivan Crnojević to protect the town from Turkish invasion. He is remembered as the first ruler to introduce the innovation of print to  Southeastern Europe.

This idyllic town, with huge historical significance, is an appealing canvas of well-preserved facades, authentic architecture and beautiful natural surrounding. You will also find remains of Montenegro’s first pharmacy and weapons workshop.
