Independence Square – Meeting point

Independence Square, formerly Republic Square or Square of the Republic, is the central town square of Podgorica. It is located in Nova Varoš, the administrative, as well as socio-cultural heart of the city.

The city library “Radosav Ljumović” is located on the square, as well as the state gallery “Art”. Before the independence of Montenegro, this square was called Trg Ivana Milutinovića, named after the famous Montenegrin communist Ivan Milutinović. When Montenegro became independent, it was named Republic Square.

The square was a very important place in Podgorica, but it has lost its commercial significance since the construction of new areas in the city. Nevertheless, the Independence square continues to be very important place in Podgorica for meeting up with family and friends, various cultural gatherings, and especially when it comes to athletic or state events.
