One of the most popular places in early spring to mid-summer are the famous Nijagara Waterfalls of Podgorica. A section of waterfalls that is created by the river Cijevna that flows from the Prokletije mountains and connects to the Morača river. The name Cijevna in the native language means pipe because it creates a narrow canyon that resembles a pipe. The most beautiful waterfalls are created just 7 km before it connects to the Morača river and this spot is a beautiful sight to behold. But you have to plan your visit according to the season, because in the summer this waterfall dries out!
