Njegošev Park Podgorica – Hideout in downtown

relaxing
Relaxing

"Njegošev Park" is the closest to a cosy central city park that Podgorica offers. It's right on the river, which makes it great for chilling in summer...

This is the closest to a central city park that Podgorica offers. Spanning both banks of the river, this park is almost like an oasis in the middle of the city, enabling its citizens and tourists alike to enjoy the many sunny days that Podgorica has.

Even though a lot of people pass through it via the Gazela bridge, there is still a lot of privacy and tranquility to be found. The benches and lush vegetation make it a haven, especially during the scorching summer months. Of course, since the river Morača flows right next to the park, you can also spend some time on its stony bank, and if you are brave enough, even go for a swim. Beware, Morača is a mountain river, so even during summer the water temperature doesn't go above 18 degrees Celsius. 

In the park, besides the many banks, there is also a famous basketball court, where players of the basketball club Budućnost, the most successful in Montenegro, sometimes train. Also, there are some interesting and hidden features. Weirdly, there are the remains of an old cemetery, as well as a couple of statues and monuments, for example the big statue of Petar II Petrović Njegoš, after whom the park got its name. 

If you search for some peace and shade in the center of Podgorica, Njegošev park is the best spot for that.
