Cities of Montenegro
The Heart of Montenegro - Podgorica
Podgorica, the capital, provides an environment for relaxation, work, and entertainment. Do you prefer the natural ambiance of lakes and gentle mountains, or do you prefer an urban ambiance? The choice is yours!
You can walk from the capital to “Niagara waterfalls”, which are located in the Tuzi municipality. They are most beautiful in the spring, when the water from rain and snow fall freely flows down in a beautiful display, and the sound of the water crashing to the riverbed echo while you dine at a nearby traditional restaurant.
The waterfalls are part of the Cijevna Canyon, which is breathtakingly beautiful. The Cijevna Canyon is one of the most beautiful in Montenegro due to its narrow passages, boulders, and proximity to a plain with a large vineyard. If you are not traveling by your own vehicle, take a taxi because public transportation does not go to this location!
If you drive only half an hour from the center of Podgorica, you can find one of the most beautiful lookouts above the canyon of the river Cijevna in the village of Deljaj (Tuzi municipality).
Enjoy the view of Cijevna's deep canyon, a clear and fast river that springs in Albania and flows mostly through Montenegro. If the weather is favorable, from the lookout you could also see Skadar Lake, Rumija, and Prokletije. While you're here, also take a stop to gaze at the plateau with a 16-meter-high marble cross next to a statue of Jesus Christ.
What else should is unmissable? Ostrog Monastery
Danilovgrad, a town nestled between Podgorica and Nikšić blanketed with verdant forests, has a religious temple carved into the rocks that brings together members of all religions from around the world - one of the largest shrines in the Balkans, Ostrog Monastery.
When in Danilovgrad, don't miss the cultural and historical monuments, archeological sites, and incredibly beauty, which has been praised by artists, scientists, and philosophers and philosophers.
Will it be the main city streets, the inner city's preserved architecture with unique old balconies, the fantastic Art Colony, the Homeland Museum with a rich collection of exhibits from various historical epochs, or perhaps Spuška Fortress? It's entirely up to you!
Beer, steel, and strong friendship bonds - an unusual combination in a student city
You'll have a great time here! The industrial but also student city of Nikšić hosts Lake Fest, a three-day pop-rock music festival near Krupačko Lake! Tempting enough yet? Consider visiting Trebjesa hill, Krupac lake, Slano, Kapetanovo, and Grahovsko, as well as the ski center "Vučje." These are must-see spots during your Montenegro adventure!
You can also visit Nikšić's historical sites, which include the oldest Montenegrin bridge, Moštanica, the legacy of the Romans, and the Tsar's Bridge, which was built with the help of Russian ruler Alexander III, Bedem, Crvena stijena, which is one of Europe's oldest archeological sites, and many others.
