Caffe Montenegro: Tourists like visiting Podgorica

“Podgorica – more than the capital – a bridge that connects Montenegro and the world /

For a long time, the Capital Podgorica has not only been a place of transit and business tourism, which is implied by the fact that it is a capital, an administrative center of a country. Today, Podgorica is a tourist destination where tourists come to enjoy and which is becoming an indispensable place to visit for every visitor of Montenegro, and it should be a “must visit” on every foreigner’s list of visits because the capital city deserves it. Our Podgorica really has something to offer tourists of all generations, interests and profiles. In the last two years, we can say, Podgorica has “revealed” itself to the world in terms of tourism, in which the Podgorica Tourist Organisation has made a major contribution. All of this is supported by statistics, but even without numbers, this is a fact that everyone in Podgorica can notice – a lot of foreigners are in the city every day, both in group and individual visits, and this city with its geographical position and all that it offers is a tempting choice for foreign citizens and they often choose it as their new home… This is the cosmopolitan spirit of a European metropolis – that’s Podgorica……..”
