Despite the fact that Podgorica is the capital of Montenegro, the majority of tourists overlook it as a holiday destination, which is really unfortunate! Here you will find medieval fortresses and ancient churches, as well as mosques dating back to Turkish rule. As a bonus, prices here are significantly lower than in the resort area on the Adriatic coast, the country’s main tourist area.
Summers here are quite hot, so it’s best to come at the end or beginning of the season - late spring or early autumn. In the winter, the climate is typically Mediterranean, fairly warm and without snow.
The easiest way to get to Montenegro’s capital is by flying. Aeroflot doesn’t offer direct flights to Podgorica, but you can get there with a connection, for example via Rome or Belgrade. Planes arrive at Podgorica International Airport, 11km from the centre of the city.
The most economical option is to buy round-trip plane tickets. Please note that the best deals sell out quickly, so we recommend booking in advance.
