About Montenegro and the capital, Podgorica
|The national flag of Montenegro||Borderline map of Montenegro|
|Flag description: a red field bordered by a narrow golden-yellow stripe with the Montenegrin coat of arms centered; the arms consist of a double-headed golden eagle – symbolizing the unity of church and state – surmounted by a crown; the eagle holds a golden scepter in its right claw and a blue orb in its left; the breast shield over the eagle shows a golden lion passant on a green field in front of a blue sky; the lion is a symbol of episcopal authority and harkens back to the three and a half centuries when Montenegro was ruled as a theocracy.||Border length: total: 680 km. Border countries (total: 5): Albania 186 km, Bosnia and Herzegovina 242 km, Croatia 19 km, Kosovo 76 km, Serbia 157 km.|
Though there may not be a great deal to see in Podgorica, the Montenegrin capital has been attracting an increasing number of backpackers in recent years, and the hostel scene has expanded to accommodate them. It is the newest capital city in Europe, one of the smallest, and, until recently, one of the least visited. It also might be the only European capital in which the river water looks positively drinkable – the city centers on the Morača, a fast-flowing turquoise river edged by parkland and spanned by a couple of pedestrian bridges, one of which – the Gazela – dives down below street level. There is also some impressive fortress that remains in this area, while Gorica Forest Park is worth a visit for its pleasant walking trails; it’s to the north of town, behind the easy-to-find national stadium.
Did you know about Montenegro?
- Montenegro united with Serbia and other states in 1919, to form Yugoslavia. In 2006, Montenegro declared independence from Serbia.
- Dark forests once cloaked Montenegros mountains; its name means Black Mountain.
- Montenegro (“Black Mountain) became one of the worlds newest states after gaining independence from Serbia in 2006.
The tiny state of Crna Gora is better known under its Italian name, Montenegro. The English translation – “Black Mountain” – may sound a little bleak, but Montenegro is a land exploding with color. Carpeted with flowers for much of the year, the country’s muscular peaks dappled with the dark greens of pine, beech, and birch from which turquoise streams rush down to a tantalizingly azure blue sea. Fringing it, the coastline dotted from border to border with beaches of yellow and volcanic grey, and huddles of picturesque, orange-roofed houses – a postcard come to life.
