What not to miss in Podgorica and Montenegro

The Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ is worth a visit in Podgorica, but you can also find the church of St. George from the 10th century – the oldest preserved building in the city. The most beautiful part of Podgorica is Kruševac. It houses the Petrović Castle, but also a romantic pink building surrounded by greenery, which is the former seat of the Petrović family and is the dominant feature of a large park. Today it houses a gallery and is part of the Contemporary Art Centre in Montenegro. There are also 2 mosques in the city. The colour of the city is complemented by alleys and cafes.

When you go outside the city of Podgorica, other options open for you. Only 5 kilometres from Podgorica is the Niagara waterfall known for its small cascades, beach and surrounding vineyards. Also inland, you can visit the Ostrog monastery, which is 900 meters above the valley and is partially carved into the rock. It represents the third most visited Christian city in the world and is really fascinating.

Among the most beautiful places is, for example, the medieval city of Kotor lying on the edge of the majestic bay. Here you will find a maze of alleys, a beautiful old palace with a leaning tower. There is a wonderful view from the local castle. We also add to the seaside tips the small Island of St. Stefan, which has been visited by many world-famous people. It is surrounded by 2 beautiful beaches, a park and is connected to the mainland by a narrow road.

Between Podgorica and the coast is a well-known national park with the largest lake in the Balkans – Lake Škadar. It has a rich fauna and flora, but also history. It represents an important archaeological site of churches and monasteries.
