    Ribnica

    Mala Ribnica

    The Ribnica (big and small) are two of the three rivers that go through Montenegro’s capital (the third is the Moraca). The Ribnica is evidently not a very deep river at the best of times, as it appeared to be dried out completely when I visited the city in September 2008. It was, perhaps, the most beautiful site in all of Podgorica, as the scraggly brush against the stones and light beige earth was quite aesthetically pleasing.

    Trg Republike (Republic Square) is the main central shopping square of downtown Podgorica. Don't let that description confuse you - this is no Magnificent Mile or Champs-Élysée. Certainly, there are a few high-end stores in the neighbourhood, but for the most part it is nothing special. It was recently renovated, but unfortunately I can't give any qualitative statement about whether its better or worse than it was before. The fountain is pretty, and I assume that the square will be even prettier when the construction on the west side of the square is completed.

    The Sahat Kula (Clock Tower) is a bit odd because it is essentially an old stone building surrounded by hideous Socialist-era apartment blocks and housing estates. There are some shops and stores around it, but in general this is not built up as a tourist site. It is an odd sort of clock tower, as it is square and does not appear to be connected to anything else - in Skopje, the same sort of Ottoman installation is found beside Hjuncar Mosque, which sort of makes sense. In all, Sahat Kula is most remarkable in that, if you are coming to Podgorica by train or bus and want to look around the city on foot, it is the first historic monument that you will see.

    New Bridge

    Millenium Bridge

    Almost every city in the world has its own Millenium Bridge. Recently Podgorica got one too. It was opened on July 13th, the National Holliday of Montenegro. I like it , especially at night.
