March 7, 2018 Joeann Galban

Podgorica (/ˈpɒdɡɒrɪtsə/ POD-gorr-ih-tsə; Montenegrin Cyrillic: Подгорица, pronounced [pǒdɡoritsa], lit. "[area] below Gorica [name of a hillock overlooking the city]") is the capital and largest city of Montenegro. The city was also called Titograd (Montenegrin Cyrillic: Титоград, [tîtoɡraːd]) between 1946 and 1992 when Montenegro was part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY), in honour of Josip Broz Tito.

Moraca River

The symbol of Podgorica and also the greatest river flowing through the Capital. Its deep riverbed, large rocks and icy temperatures are just some of the main characteristics of this mountain river. On its way through the Capital, Moraca also carved out many caves. It is 113 kilometres long, and it runs from north to south, flowing into the Skadar Lake.

My wife and I took a day trip by coach to explore much of Montenegro and I have to say that although in general I wasn't too impressed with the people who greatly favoured both Russian and German tourists, I can take nothing away from the spectacular scenery. Further along this gorge there is a fantastic secluded monastery with delightful Gardens. This is certainly a visit worth travelling for

Moraca River Canyon

Reviewed By Ntragkon - Belgrade, Serbia

Moraca Canyon is a place you have to see.
Also, section that you have to drive at least once.
The fun begins about fifteen kilometers after Kolasin and hundred from entering the MNE from Serbia (depends on where you crossed the "border").
These fifty kilometers is the best part of the road from entering Montenegro until Skadar Lake.
Along the way you will follow the river ...and Morača will follow you.
I believe that you will often stop the car.
Prepare the camera, insert a larger memory card.
Take your time because it is not simply crossing the sections. This is the beauty revealed behind every corner, at the exit of every tunnel.
Road carved into the cliff underneath which meanders the Moraca, skipping over rocks, rushing to Lake Skadar.
Arm yourself with patience. This is not the road that forgives the rush.
It's road for enjoying... the ride, landscapes and crystal Emerald river.

Vladimir Vysotsky Monument

On the shores of Moraca, there is a monument erected to honour the famous Russian poet, theatre and film actor and writer Vladimir Visotsky, who resided in Podgorica while working on a film for the erstwhile Titograd TV station. He expressed his love for Montenegro in his poem ''For the Montenegrins'', and this is his only monument outside the borders of the former Soviet Union.

He's some russian poet, and for some reason there is his monument in Podgorica. On the other hand it is near the river, and there are some benches around the monument where you can take some rest during sunny day..

In the last 20 years or so- many Bridges were built in this design, but if you are in Pogorica- it is worth passing by and seeing the bridge in this place.

Waterfall Niagara

Reviewed By Tiffani H

Went to the waterfall after breakfast. First stopped for a drink at the restaurant. Then a little wander to the man made waterfall, which unfortunately wasn't flowing as the water level was too low. There was water at the bottom with huge frogs swimming around.
We then went up the river and found a good spot to settle down and swim from.
Husband and I took turns to do some rock jumping, while our two year old played in the shallow area.
Highly recommend coming here if you are visiting the city (not much to see in the city, but this certainly made it worth it)
Lunch at the restaurant was good! All traditional food with good beer.

St. George's Church

This is an Orthodox church in the foothill of the Gorica hill, built between the 9th and 11th centuries, and it is part of a group of pre-Romanesque monuments. This is also the oldest preserved building in Podgorica. Beneath the altar there is a small subterranean passage, which was believed to have led to Duklja.

Reviewed By Leigh B - Parakai, null, New Zealand

This is a lovely old church nestled in the hill at the edge of toen on the city centre side. It is very nicely kept. I didn't go into the cemetery at the back but if you do (I was warned) be careful not to fall in a grave

Fabulous place at Skadar lake, distanced about 30 kilometers from Podgorica.
If you really want to enjoy in beauty of national park Skadar lake, I strongly recommend to take a road from Rijeka Crnojevica to Virpazar. It will be your unforgettable ride through national park Skadar Lake.

Some fifty kilometres away from Podgorica town, on a road leading across the region of Kuci, this lake is located in a plateau bordered by the high cliffs of the nearby Komovi Mountains.

We have been to Bukumir Lake on our way to much further Rikavac Lake near border of Montenegro and Albania.. It is good for all off-road lovers of 4wd traveling.. A little bit challengefull but the lakes are beautiful,especially if you come early in the morning.. If you have 1 day to spent for a cruising and sightseeing, you will enjoy in wild nature of this part of Montenegro
