Stop At: Clock Tower, Trg Becir Bega Osmanagica bb Stara Varos, Podgorica, Podgorica Municipality Montenegro

Today, the clock tower is one of the symbols of Podgorica and represents the most beautiful example of architecture from the period when the Turks ruled this area. With its height of 16 meters, it dominates and represents the border between the old and new parts of Podgorica. The Clock Tower was the tallest building in Podgorica until the middle of the 20th century. The tower was built by Mehmed Pasha Osmanagić at the end of the 17th century. For a long time it was the center of events in Podgorica, and even today it is a landmark for people coming to the city. A clock mechanism from Venice is installed on the top of the tower, but it has been broken for a long time and does not show the correct time.

Stop At: Waterfall Niagara, Cijevna River, Podgorica, Podgorica Municipality Montenegro

One of the most beautiful and accessible waterfalls in Montenegro is located near Podgorica, at the Cijevna river. The river itself flows from the Prokletije mountains near the Albanian border. When the snow on mountain tops melts in the spring, the river is swollen with water and flows beside endless vineyards and fields into the Morača river and Lake Skadar. Nearby the junction of Cijevna and Morača there is a picturesque waterfall that locals half-jokingly call Niagara. Of course it is much smaller than its namesake, but the similarity is striking as it is wide with many side streams near the main waterfall.
