Earth > Europe > Southern Europe > Balkans > Montenegro > Podgorica
Podgorica is the capital of Montenegro. It's home to around 190,000 people. As it isn't the historical capital of Montenegro, it doesn't offer too many touristic spots for sightseeing, being mainly the administrative center in the country. However, being located in the middle of the country makes it really a good spot from which you can explore the beautiful nature of the northern parts of Montenegro, as well as make day trips to the coast. In the summer temperatures can get really high, up to 45 degrees of Celsius, so watch out for your health and carry a high factor protective sunscreen.
South towards Shkoder
The best is to get to this roundabout directly after which there is a great hitchhiking spot. One of the lanes going out of the roundabout vanishes into the other leaving plenty of nice asphalt for cars to stop.
South towards Cetinje, Budva, Kotor, Herceg Novi
The best spot for hitchhiking which many locals use as well is after the last traffic lights where road starts going towards Cetinje - here. Waiting time is usually not longer than 15 minutes.
