For kilometers far from the center of Podgorica,there are the remains of ancient Doclea, set on a wide plateau between the rivers Moraca, Zeta and Širalija,in the first decade of the first century AD.

From the 4th century AD, on the eastern side of the city, an area where Christians lived sprang up,giving rise to churches, and a large Episcopal basilica.

Some valuable examples of found grave inventory - vessels of pottery and glass, jewelery parts, tools, weapons and money, are part of the permanent exhibition of the Museum of the city.

Ancient Doclea was introduced in world archeology by discovery of the famous Podgorica glass, which is now kept in the Hermitage, the Russian Museum.

The first archaeological investigations began in the late nineteenth century and still are going.
