The capital city of Montenegro, Podgorica is a town that has had 5 names, as it passed through the hands of various conquerors from the Romans to the Turks to the Austro-Hungarians and occasionally it has totally disappeared off the map totally. Hard to define, Podgorica is a mish mash of architectural styles. It covers 10.4% of Montenegro's territory and is home to 29.9% of the country's population. It does however have an amazing coffee culture that is spurred on by its inventive locals and huge number of students who gather en masse in cafes prior to heading to a coworking venue to get creative.
Podgorica sits where the Ribnica and the Moraca Rivers meet on the Zeta Plain that is close to the seaside resorts squatting on the Adriatic Sea and the winter skiing playgrounds in the north. The old town is dominated by a centuries-old clock tower that was built by the Turks, old monasteries sit in the south of the city and the modern Millennium Bridge spans the Moraca River. The Lake Skadar National Park is where you will find beaches to dip your toes in the water and plenty of pelicans gulping down fish. There is a vast array of galleries, lush parks and a plethora of bars and restaurants.
Montenegro is a part of the "Western Balkans" along with Albania, Bosnia, Macedonia, Serbia and Herzegovina plus Kosovo that are lagging behind their Western peers, but it's being seen as the next frontier, as far as the startup scene is concerned. It's hoped that digital entrepreneurship will accelerate the economic growth of these countries. Already there are networks springing up and innovation ecosystems happening in a game of catch-up. Montenegro has had the doors open on its Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center since 2016 as a part of its Scientific and Technology Park that is a project of its government. Currently it's supporting its first generation of startups and new role models are emerging for its young tech savvy youth. Coworking venues appearing are one more step in the groundwork that is paving the way for Montenegro to become a part of the global tech scene.
