What Can You Expect from Expat Life in Podgorica?

With a population of less than 300,000, Podgorica may be one of Europe's smallest capitals, but its people are proud and welcoming, and the city has undergone significant development since Montenegro gained independence in 2006. Located at the confluence of the Morača and Ribnica rivers, the city offers plentiful green space, mixed with a number of friendly bars and restaurants. As the economic center of Montenegro, Podgorica is also home to much of the country's industrial, commercial, and financial activity. Many expats are attracted to opportunities in key industries, including energy, construction, and tourism, while others are drawn by the city's excellent links to nearby Albania, Serbia, Bosnia, and Kosovo. The city can feel a little quiet at times — particularly during the swelteringly hot late summer months — but during the evenings Podgorica really comes to life, expressing the diversity and open-hearted spirit for which the Balkans are justly famed.
