Take a break on some of the most beautiful beaches of the Adriatic, in the area around Budva. Visit the largest lake in the Balkans – Lake Skadar (also known as Lake Scutari).

Podgorica for urban travellers

Discover all that the city has to offer. Podgorica's modern Nova Varoš or Centar district lies between the Morača and Ribnica rivers. This is where you will find most shops and restaurants and where the city's lively nightlife is concentrated.  Stara Varoš is the original, old part of the city, south of the confluence of the rivers. Although the city was almost completely destroyed during the Second World War, you can still see the Clock Tower, surrounded by a small square, the old city walls and two small mosques. Just a kilometre away, across the Morača, is Podgorica's modern business district – Novi Grad.

Podgorica for entertainment and shopping

Sitting in cafés is a popular pastime in Podgorica. Most of the newer cafés and bars are in the newer part of the city. For lunch, choose one of the many restaurants or enjoy a picnic in Mareza, on Lake Skadar or on Gorica Hill. If you enjoy shopping, Podgorica offers numerous boutiques – but beware of counterfeits when shopping for well-known fashion brands. Many premium brands have their own stores in the Vektra and Maxim neighbourhoods in the new part of the city. Podgorica also has a number of shopping malls, the largest of which is Delta City.
