Žabljak ©
A trip to Zabljak takes you to the north of the country, a mountainous region that's as steeped in great scenery and views as it is in history and culture.
Step out of Žabljak with an excursion to Piva Canyon in Plužine--about 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: explore the stunning scenery at Tara River Canyon, snap pictures at Đurđevića Tara Bridge, get outside with Adventure Park Durmitor, and contemplate the waterfront views at Black Lake.

To find photos, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Žabljak tour site.
