Piva Canyon, Montenegro: the road along the top of the Mratinje Dam - at 220m of the largest in Europe, a location from the film Force 10 from Navarone – is to be upgraded as part of an EU project to improve links to Bosnia it was announced yesterday. @theBlondeGypsy drove this road on the way to Sarajevo and tells us, ‘It’s a lovely spot!’ Specifically, €3.5m from the Western Balkans Investment Framework will pay for initial studies on the 17 mile section of E762 from Pluzine to Scepan Polje on the border, where the Piva and Tara rivers meet to form the Drina, in the shadow of Maglic (7828ft), Bosnia’s highest mountain.
