Podgorica is the capital of Montenegro, and the administrative and cultural center of the country. This picturesque city has always attracted the attention of travelers, and the development of the tourist industry has made it one of the most popular European resorts. Many years ago a small Roman settlement was located at the site of the city. If this place wasn’t so badly damaged not during World War II, Podgorica could have been proud of its historical heritage.
During the years of the war the city was literally wiped off the face of the earth, so the buildings, which can be seen today, were built in the second half of the 20th century. The locals have done their best, so nowadays Podgorica simply amazes visitors by grandeur of parks and squares, which surround beautiful tall buildings. The most ambitious architectural projects of the 21st century are Millennium Bridge and Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ, which are located near the center. There is another monument, which will be interesting to travellers from Russia. In 2004, a sculpture of Vladimir Vysotsky was installed on one of the squares.
