Travel Tips to Podgorica (TGD)
Discover Podgorica’s Past and Present
The current capital of Montenegro reaches from the mouth of the River Zeta to Lake Skutar. Archaeologists have been able to prove that the area was already settled in the first half of the 14th century. Between 1466 and 1878 Podgorica belonged to the Ottoman Empire. Since 1878 the city has functioned as the centre of Montenegro – most notably in the political and economic sense. From 1946 until 1992 the city was called Titograd, in tribute to the Yugoslav dictator Josip Broz Tito. Podgorica is the beating cultural heart of Montenegro. Enjoy a city with Ottoman monuments, modern buildings and a varied cultural programme.
View the Cathedral of the Resurrection
The Serbian Orthodox main church of Podgorica is the largest orthodox church in Montenegro and the landmark of the city. the snow-white cathedral was built between 1993 and 2013. As the dome is nearly 36 metres high, it can be seen from afar. The floor plan is in the shape of a cross. The building has a main and several small domes and towers, making it look like a castle. In the interior of the church a total of 1,872 square metres of mosaic await you on the floor and a further 79 square metres on the walls. The numerous wood carvings, frescoes and icons are also worth seeing.
Another Trademark: The Millennium Bridge
Particularly if you are interested in modern architecture, a visit to the Millennium Bridge could be a highlight during your stay in Podgorica. The cable-stay bridge has spanned the river Morača since 2005. For the ceremonial opening of the bridge, the 13th July was chosen as the Montenegrin National Day. Up till now the bridge has been a symbol of the economic upturn of the country. It is 173 metres long and consists of one pylon (57 metres high), a pathway surface and a total of 36 suspension cables. You can choose whether you walk or drive over the bridge. The details of the bridge construction (which was done using the so-called incremental launching method) are obviously easier to see if you choose to walk.
The Lake Skutar National Park– Rich in Birds and Fish
Lake Skutar, situated just under 15 kilometres from the centre of Podgorica can be recommended to anyone who would like to find out about the flora and fauna of Montenegro. The lake, which is also known as Lake Shkroda, has a large bird population and a considerable richness in fish. During cold times of the year, the lake measures about 300 square kilometres and when the last snows have melted, about another 200 square kilometres are added. The Morača feeds Lake Skutar, which can be found since 1996 in the international Ramsar-List for wetlands. If you wish to swim in this lake in the summer, there is a beach.
