Explore the old town and the banks of the Morača River
Throughout its tumultuous history, Podgorica has undergone numerous transformations, having been ruled by different powers, from the Romans to the Turks to the Austro-Hungarians. Severely bombed during the Second World War and rebuilt by socialists, the charming city boasts a vibrant cafe culture, excellent galleries, and plenty of green spaces to unwind.
Start your tour at Stara Varoš — the oldest neighbourhood in Podgorica. Visit the Turkish Clock Tower, one of the city's most iconic landmarks. Stroll the tiny crooked streets to the 15th-century Starodoganjska and 18th-century Osmanagić Mosques.
Then wander through the city’s lungs, from King's Park to Njegošev Park — a picturesque downtown hideout overlooking the Morača River. Rest your feet and nurture your inner child by swaying through the air on the giant swings. Cross the river and enjoy an adult refreshment al fresco at Camper or Mocktail bar. Or, even better, bar-hop at both!
Continue your stroll to the pedestrian-only Moscow Bridge. Stop here for a moment. Soak in the beauty of the rushing transparent-blue waters of Morača and admire another key landmark — the Millennium Bridge.
