Rijeka Crnojevića (meaning the river of Crnojević) is a town in Montenegro besides the eponymous river, near the coast of Skadar lake. The spring of Rijeka Crnojevića is 2.5km south-west from Rijeka Crnojevića town, under the cave in the Obod hill (420m high). The Ottomans captured Žabljak Crnojevića in 1478 after they defeated main army of Ivan Crnojević in late 1477 or early 1478. Ivan moved his seat to Obod (fortified by him in 1475) which was soon renamed to Rijeka Crnojevića, and became the new capital of Montenegro. Rijeka Crnojevića was the historical seat of Riječka nahija, one of the four territorial units of Old Montenegro.
