Žabljak

— 2 nights
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.
Take a break from the city and head to Black Lake and Jablan Lake. When in Žabljak, make a side trip to see Tara River Canyon in Dobrilovina, approximately Dobrilovina away. On the 12th (Mon), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Bobotov Kuk. There's still lots to do: snap pictures at Đurđevića Tara Bridge and pause for some photo ops at Monument to the Heroes and Partizans of World War II.
