For a long time, the only bridge in our capital was today’s bridge of Vaka Djurovića. According to some data, it was probably built by the Grand Vizier Mehmed – Pasha Sokolović, in the 16th century, and therefore it was called the Vezirov Bridge.
One of the most frequented bridges in our capital city is also the bridge of Blažo Jovanović. It was built in the ’50s and named after the national hero Blažo Jovanović. It has been reconstructed many times in order to get the appearance as we know it today.
Of course, we must not forget the Union bridge which is also important since it takes a lot of traffic from the bridge of Blažo Jovanović.
Also, there are two pedestrian bridges, located in the immediate vicinity of each other. It’s the Moscow and the Suspenion Bridge. The Suspension Bridge is unique because when a strong wind blows in Podgorica, this bridge sways, which makes it very interesting to experience while you are crossing the bridge!
Finally, the Millenium bridge, a recognisable landmark of Podgorica!
This bridge was officially opened on 13 July 2005, on the anniversary of the uprising of the people of Montenegro against the Italian occupiers during the Second World War. This magnificent bridge leaves no one indifferent.
My favorite bridge is the Moscow bridge, because you can relax and soak the sun in warm weather on the bridge’s many benches!
