PODGORICA - Capital of Montenegro

PODGORICA - Capital of Montenegro

Position of Montenegro

Montenegro's flag

Podgorica is the capital and largest city in Montenegro. Now, there are about 200000 people in Podgorica. Podgorica is located in central Montenegro.

The municipality of Podgorica contains 10.4% of Montenegro's territory and 27.3% of its population. It is the administrative centre of Montenegro and its economic, cultural and educational focus.

Podgorica is at the crossroads of several important routes: the rivers Zeta, Morača, Cijevna, Ribnica, and Sitnica, in the valley of Skadar lake and near the Adriatic Sea, in fertile lowlands with favourable climate. The earliest human settlements were in prehistory: the oldest physical remains are from the late Stone Age. In the Illyrian age, the area between the Zeta and Bjelopavlići valleys was occupied by two Illyrian tribes, the Labeates and the Docleats.

Podgorica suffered heavily during World War II: it was bombarded over 70 times and razed to the ground, with the deaths of over 4,100 people. It was liberated on December 19, 1944.

The capital of Montenegro is now modern european city. I sugest : Visit Podgorica and beautiful Montenegro!!!

Crna Gora - my new favorite place
"Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice. Carl Spackler, 1980

Cool city.

About the new projects: Millennium City's focal point looks like a harsh plaza no one will ever use, and Delta City is just a...mall...bleh. I like the old city better.
