Podgorica is the largest and capital city of Montenegro and the main crossroads in Montenegro. It was named after the hill Gorica, under which it grew and developed.

Near the town are the remains of the ancient Roman city of Duklja, from the first century AD, whose excavations testify to the rich culture of this old town and this area. However, in recent years, the city has experienced great prosperity and is becoming a modern metropolis.
