According to the legend, Mojkovac got his name by merging three words "moj kovani novac" (my forged money) uttered by King Uros I when minting money in the mine Brskovo. Municipality Mojkovac includes an extended valley of river Tara, which divides the area of the municipality into two nearly equal parts. There are gorges, valleys and parts of the canyon. From the cliffs to the north of the spring of the river Štitarica is basin Mojkovac, which from Ferats fields over Podbišce, Donje selo (Lower village) and Mojkovac flattens with Upper and Lower Fields. About 15 km downstream river Bistrica flows in river Tara. It is from the gorge below Crna Poda (old-growth forest), where two mountains Sinjajevina and Proscenje meet, begins the magnificent canyon of the Tara River, about 78 km long and from 900 to 1300 meters deep. On the sides of the canyon, you can see cliffs and rocky slopes dotted with lonely pines and dense deciduous and evergreen forests. In the cliffs of the canyon are about 300 head of wild animals - wild goats. The narrow valley of canyon Tara that belongs to municipality Mojkovac, old-growth forest Crna Poda and Zabojsko Lake on mountain Sinjajevina are a part of National Park Durmitor. Mojkovac is well connected to other cities in Montenegro by roads, by Adriatic highway with Podgorica, Kolašin and Bijelo Polje, by regional road with Šavnik and Žabljak and by railroad with Serbia and Montenegrin coast.
