An architectural marvel of its time, Blok V neighbourhood is one of the most organised and lively parts of the city. This planned borough, designed and constructed during the 1980s, is a testament of how social housing, commerce, health care, education and service could be arranged in a very logical manner, as Blok V could be regarded as a city within the city. Some of the tallest buildings in Podgorica are here, but don’t worry, there are many trees and banks which give this spot a bigger appeal.
What I like about this part of Podgorica is the plentiful amount of space and the many promenades to walk on. Numerous cafes, restaurant, utilities and sport facilities also cover this area, with my favorite being Ko To Zna pub, Sicilia and Džada (check out the article). Also, there is plenty of parking lots, and most of them are free, so if you find yourself in this part of the city, this is the place to leave your car.
The Temple of Christ’s resurrection is just across the street, as well as the Tološi park (which is a popular place for joggers and street workout), Roman square and the University of Montenegro are in the vicinity.
If you want to see a great example of well-organised brutalist architecture and urban planning, with plenty of things to do and see, Blok V is a great spot for that.
