Description

Podgorica is the capital city of Montenegro, located in the central portion of the country, nestled in a valley at the confluence of two rivers—the Ribnica and Morača. Though often overlooked in favor of Montenegro's more popular coastal cities, Podgorica is a hidden gem that should not be missed.

Having been heavily bombarded during World War II and subjected to a series of earthquakes, the city has undergone a remarkable transformation from a war-torn and dilapidated area to a burgeoning modern metropolis with a burgeoning economy. The city boasts a mixture of historic architecture and modern infrastructure with an array of café bars, restaurants, and interesting landmarks that are a testament to its rich cultural heritage.

Podgorica's old town, Stara Varoš, is a must-visit for anyone with a fascination for ancient structures. The medieval architecture reflects the city's Ottoman and Turkish influences, evident in the intricate archways, houses with distinctive red-tiled roofs, and cobblestone streets. This area is best explored on foot, and visitors can get lost in the maze of narrow alleys that lead to hidden plazas and beautiful churches.

Culture and history buffs are in for a treat as they can visit the National Museum of Montenegro, located in an impressive palace, with plenty of artwork, archeological artifacts, and ethnographic exhibits, showcasing striking history, no wonder it tops the list of tourist attractions within the city. The Millennium Bridge, with its contemporary design, is a beautiful sight and also a good spot to get a panoramic view of the city, especially at night when the water shimmers with the reflections of the colorful lights from the neighboring buildings.

The greenery and well-manicured parks are equally impressive in the city center, with the central park being the largest and the most popular among locals, a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. The park has cycling trails, well-manicured lawns, and plenty of seating spots, and if you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of one of the resident rabbits, squirrels, or birds.

As night falls, the city comes alive, with locals heading out sipping coffee and socializing in the numerous bars and restaurants found on every street. There is something for everyone; from trendy rooftop bars with stunning views of the city, traditional kafanas that offer homemade rakia and grilled meat, to interna
