The Shrine of the Resurrection
Shrine is dedicated to the Resurrection and the largest Orthodox Christian shrine in Montenegro. It is located in part of Podgorica called Momišići. The construction of the Shrine begun in 1993. and it is still in progress. The founding stone was laid by the Russian patriarch Aleksey. The impressive architectural structure is dominated by golden crosses, which were a present and a donation from Russia.

 

 

 

 

 Church of the Holy Heart of Jesus
In a suburb east of the centre, Podgorica's Catholic church is an amazing work of modern architecture. Replacing the city centre church that was destroyed in the war, the bold and brutal concrete building was built in 1969 to look like a ship. The facade was never finished, so it looks a bit like a disused factory. From the dark interior, an ingenious 25-metre high tower sticks up, filtering light to illuminate the main altar. There's a 40-metre high freestanding bell tower too, as well as smashing concrete spiral staircases.

 


St.George’s Church
Podgorica's oldest and prettiest church is placed between  fragrant trees at the foot of Gorica hill. Inside the simple structure, the dark 16th century nave is adorned with 19th century icons and frescoes. The front room has a small shop where religious trinkets, magnetic icons and candles are sold.    For some spookytime, walk into the overgrown derelict cemetery directly behind the church - the sadly vandalized  crypts allow you to peek inside graves.

 

 

 



Clock Tower (Sahat Kula)
Every Ottoman-ruled town had a clock tower to indicate the Muslim prayer times, and Podgorica's 18th century tower is one of the few remaining structures from the time. The tall stone tower hasn't actually got a clock, but that doesn't seem to bother anyone. The tower isn't open for visitors.


Old Town (Stara Varoš)
A warren of quiet residential streets between the Morača river and Kralja Nikole is all that remains of Podgorica's old town. Wandering around here, you'll come across the small Osmanagići and Glavatovići mosques, some old residential houses and the Clock Tower.

 


The Old Mosque of Skender Čauš was built by Skender Čauš in the late XV century. With the fortress mosque above the estuary of Ribnica and Morača named Mehmed Han’s Mosques, this was the only mosque in the Old City until 1582.
It has been rebuilt many times. Major expansions took place in 1985. Mosque courtyard contains headquarters of the Islamic Community Board for Podgorica and Mešihat (highest religious and administrative organ) of Islamic Community in Montenegro.


Turkish Bathouse (Tursko Kupatilo)
The old Turkish bath complex, Podgorica's largest remaining historical building, can be found hidden in the Ribnica river gorge east of the centre. It was unfortunately decapitated by city planners who apparently insisted on building a bridge following the grid structure of the city, even if it meant ruining this building. Roofless, it is now stuck underneath the Novi Most bridge, and has been transformed into a rather wonderful cultural centre. Nothing remains of the original interior.

Ribnica Bridge
A cute 15th century Ottoman arched bridge spans the Ribnica river near the confluence with the Morača. Best reached via the steps going down near the Blaža Jovanovića bridge.
Ribnica Fortress
Erected at the confluence of the Ribnica and Morača rivers by the Turks when they invaded in 1474, Ribnica Fortress was once a massive castle. Nowadays, all that remains are some rubbish-strewn fields and the crumbling tower walls on the cliff overlooking the two rivers.


Modern Art Gallery
Podgorica's most elegant building, the pretty white Petrović Palace that formerly belonged to King Nikola, is home to the modern art collection of the city museum. The museum features a lot of African and Asian paintings and sculptures, but also has rooms with Montenegrin 20th century art with works by Risto Stijović, Milo Milunović, Filo Filipović and others. If they're not on display, ask to be shown the collection of gifts made to Tito by presidents and dictators including Gaddafi and Sadam Hussein. Find the palace up the stairs in the lush park behind the US embassy.



Sod school and work, most Podgoricans spend all their lives sitting in one of the many cafés and bars. Open for first coffee early in the morning until the last beer or cocktail late at night, these places are where life happens.
Expect drinks and second-hand smoke, but no food or snacks.
Coffee is the most popular daytime drink and every single deal in the city is made over an espresso or cappuccino.
Do try the Turkish coffee, though indicate how sweet you want it beforehand and wait with sipping till the gunk has sunk. In Montenegro, they can make alcohol out of any fruit and recommended local drinks include lozova rakija and šljivovica.
Also take a walk at some of the favourite picnic locations of Podgorica citizens - Mareza, Skadar Lake, or Gorica hill. While strolling through Podgorica center, you might find the shopping area interesting, as there is vast number of boutiques, just beware the counterfeits!
