According to itypejob, the capital of Montenegro – Podgorica, is located at the confluence of five rivers, on the shores of Lake Skadar. Favorable conditions for agriculture have influenced the fact that people have lived here since the Stone Age, and the former city of Duklia, located near the modern capital, was one of the largest cities in antiquity. 13 km from Podgorica lies the ancient city of Medun, which for many years served as a fortress for different peoples. Until today, only steps carved into the rocks remained from the city, which led to the acropolis, located on the mountain, as well as the ruins of the wall that protected the city from attacks. The City Museum is the cultural merit of Podgorica. At the moment, the museum’s collection consists of numerous objects of the Roman era and ethnographic expositions relating to the history of the city. The small town near Lake Orjen became known to Europeans thanks to the Center for Health Tourism and the Institute of Physiotherapy located here, as well as several other health centers. A large concentration of health facilities in this place is associated with the mineral springs located here, the mild Mediterranean climate and therapeutic mud. Not far from the Recreation and Recreation Center is Villa Galeb, which used to play the role of the residence of Marshal Tito. Now in the former residence there is a modern health-improving complex, which occupies 5 hectares of land. In addition to well-known health centers, there are more than two km. wonderful beaches and many sports facilities. One of the most picturesque places in Montenegro is the Boka Kator Bay, which is the largest fjord in the Mediterranean (it cuts into land for 28 km). For many centuries, sailors from all over the world used this place as a parking lot for their ships during a storm. The picturesque villages and towns that stretch along the shores of the bay are surrounded by numerous churches, towers, and fortress walls that create a fabulous atmosphere. The most attractive city is Kotor, which is sandwiched between the bay and Mount Lovcen. On its territory, medieval buildings and various historical monuments are perfectly preserved, thanks to which it received the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The small town of Risan lies in the northernmost part of the Boka Kator Bay. During the reign of Queen Teuta, it was the capital of the state. On its territory you can find well-preserved mosaics from the time of Ancient Rome. The most beautiful city on the Adriatic coast and the most popular Mediterranean resort – the city of Budva has been known since the 5th century BC. The entire territory of the city is intertwined with narrow streets, along which small cafes, restaurants and shops huddle. The main attraction of Budva is the Old Town, which is surrounded by a city wall along the perimeter, the main gate of which overlooks the sea coast. In the Old Town there are ancient churches, a seaside citadel and small squares. In the summer, Budva hosts many different festivals, the largest of which are: the City Theater festival and the Mediteran Song. Resting in Budva, you should definitely visit the “Church of the Virgin Mary”, which almost merged with the city wall. According to legend, all the Christians of the city gathered at the place where the church was founded, when the Benedictine monks on the ship brought the icon of the Virgin Mary. Modern Budva has long expanded its borders and gone beyond the redistribution of the wall, now more than 10 thousand inhabitants live here, but during the influx of tourists, the population of the city increases 6 times. The real “natural wonder” of Montenegro can be called river canyons. Montenegro leads in Europe in terms of the number of deep canyons. An amazing sight opens on the canyon of the Tara River. The river cut a valley in the rocky massif, the depth of which in some places reaches 1300 meters, and the minimum width is only three meters. Adjacent to the valley, the Durmitor National Park is a great place for a winter holiday. It is located on the highest rocky massif, so skiing is developed here quite strongly. Moroca Monastery is located near the National Park,
