Podgorica is the capital, the cultural and commercial centre, and by far the largest city of
Montenegro. It is located in Central Montenegro at the confluence of the Ribnica and Moraca rivers. Most of the city was destroyed during World War II, so Podgorica has now relatively modern buildings.  

 

Podgorica has excellent connections with the other places of the country, incl. the winter ski centres in the north and the seaside resorts on the Adriatic coast. The international airport of Montenegro is situated at nine kilometres from the city.

It served as the capital of Zeta under the Crnojević dynasty from 1466 till 1478. Then the Turks seized the town so that Ivan Crnojević was forced to move the capital to Cetinje.
