About Podgorica

Podgorica, the capital city of Montenegro, sits at the spot where the Ribnica and Morača rivers join. It's a city that combines old and new beautifully. You can see history in its Ottoman-era buildings and feel the modern vibe in its lively squares and green parks. Podgorica is a place where you can explore Montenegro's past and enjoy its present, offering a unique blend of tradition and city exploration.

Exploring Podgorica

The allure of Podgorica lies in its ability to narrate its history through its landmarks and its people. Begin your journey in the heart of the city at the Millennium Bridge, a modern marvel that connects the new part of the city with the old. A short walk from the bridge will take you to the Old Town, known locally as Stara Varoš. This area is a treasure trove of Ottoman and Roman history, filled with the aroma of traditional foods and the sound of the marketplace.

Continue your adventure to the Podgorica Fortress, locally referred to as Sahat Kula. Wander around the ancient walls and enjoy panoramic views of the city. Nearby, the King Nikola's Palace turned museum offers insights into Montenegrin royal history.

Podgorica is also famed for its green spaces. Gorica Hill, after which the city is named, is a peaceful retreat from urban life, offering trails for walking and cycling. Adventure seekers will enjoy Skadar Lake, located just a short drive from the city center. This vast lake is a haven for bird watching, boat tours, and experiencing the untouched Montenegrin nature.

As the evening sets in, Podgorica's vibrant side comes to life. Indulge in Montenegrin cuisine at local restaurants, or savor international dishes. The city's nightlife buzzes with bars, clubs, and cultural events, providing ample opportunities to mingle with locals and travelers alike.
