Podgorica Things to Do

  • 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...

  • Trg Republike

    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...

  • Sahat Kula

    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...

Inside the restaurant has two floors. The ground...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Many believe that Medovina is a mixture of honey and Brandy. In fact, this Montenegrin drink is more related to wine, that's why it is referred to as honey-wine. It is made by mixing honey and water, the two main ingredients, after which it takes a whole year for the product to mature in the process of alcoholic fermentation. Its flavour is sweet and mild, and its alcohol by volume content is 12-15%.

    Medovina (Mead) is independently multicultural. It is known from many sources of ancient history throughout Europe, Africa and Asia, although archaeological evidence of it is ambiguous. Its origins are lost in prehistory; it can be regarded as the ancestor of all fermented drinks.

    Medovina was considered by the ancient Slavic warriers as the elixir of life, and was believed to possess healing powers. It was discovered that Medovina contains the entire vitamin B complex, along with other essential properties which can have a positive effect on fertility.

    What to buy: The highest quality honey can be found in Crna Gora in the mountainous regions of Durmitor and the villages on the slopes of Lovcen.
    Medovina was one of the drinks popular among the ancient Slavs, while today it is made at private village households according to traditional recipes.

    What to pay: 20-25 Eur per bottle.

Podgorica Local Customs

  • Niksicko Pivo

    Montenegro's most popular local beer is Niksicko Pivo, which is brewed by the Trebjesa brewery in Niksic. After Podgorica, Niksic is Montenegro's second largest town.The brewery produces four lagers: Niksicko pivo, Nik Gold, Nik Cool, and Niksicko tamno. During our 2 weeks in Montenegro I enjoyed quite a few Niksicko pivo and Nik Gold.Nowadays the...

  • Montenegrin currency: Euro

    I found it quite an interesting fact to know that Montenegro is neither a member of the European Union nor a member of the so called Eurozone, but that the country has adopted the Euro as official currency.Prior to the introduction of the Euro, the German Mark (Deutsche Mark) was the currency used in Montenegro. Of course Montenegro does not have...

  • Get Dressed

    If coming during the summer, expect pretty high temperatures. This, however, shouldn’t encourage you to come to this place half-naked. I remember two years ago when a priest didn’t allow a girl to enter the room where the relics of St. Vasilije were displayed. The strict “dress code” does not exist, but if you want to feel comfortable, to show...

Podgorica What to Pack

  • The Rough Guide to Montenegro

    For our 2 week trip to Montenegro, I felt the need to buy a proper guide book for independent travel.I finally decided for "The Rough Guide to Montenegro - 1st edition", as I have already made many good experiences with Rough Guides on several other trips.

It offers a rich cultural and historical heritage, especially from the 18th and 19th century.The main sight is probably Cetinje Monastery, which was founded in 1701 and destroyed several times by the Turks. Other sights include the...
