Podgorica

Podgorica is the capital and largest city of Montenegro. The city was also called Titograd from 1946 to 1992 during the existence of SFR Yugoslavia.Podgorica's favourable position at the confluence of the Ribnica and Morača rivers and the meeting point of the fertile Zeta Plain and Bjelopavlići Valley has encouraged settlement. The city is close to winter ski centres in the north and seaside resorts on the Adriatic Sea.The city's population was 204,877 in the 2011 census. The Podgorica Municipality contains 10.4% of Montenegro's territory and 29.9% of its population. It is the administrative centre of Montenegro and its economic, cultural and educational focus.EtymologyThe name Podgorica means "below the little hill", Gorica being the name of the cypress-covered hill that overlooks the city centre.Some three kilometres north-west of Podgorica lie the ruins of Roman-era Doclea, where Roman Emperor Diocletian hailed from. In later centuries, Romans "corrected" the name to Dioclea, guessing wrongly that an "i" had been lost in vulgar speech. "Duklja" is the later version of that word.
