Peaceful and picturesque place in Montenegro, a place where time almost stopped. Once upon a time it was one of the most important trading centers in this region. Rijeka Crnojevića got its name from Ivan Crnojević, then ruler of Montenegro, who escaping from Turkish advances moved its capital to Obod, one hill above Rijeka. Rijeka Crnojevića at that time was a gathering place of tradesmen of different religions and the spirit of tolerance was always present and neatly cared for. One of main products was dry ukljeva (endemic fish). Rich Italian traders paid plenty to bring it to their tables. Today Rijeka Crnojevića is famous for its bridge built by Prince Danilo in 1853, its mild climate for which the Petrovići family built here their winter residence, for lovely scenery that calms and makes you forget about getting back to city life. Vineyards and waterfalls will meet you at source of the Rijeka Crnojevića.
