Friday is fast approaching, and with it comes Electronic Beats’ return to the lovely city of Podgorica, with three really special artists in tow: Moderat, Kate Boy, and Jessie Ware. Last year, we featured some Podgorican artists and other locals in a explained the city, and this time around we’ve put together a little impression of Montenegro’s capital to whet the hunger for the weekend, with photos from Luci Lux.
Lush bodies of water dominate Podgorica. The city is located on the Adriatic Sea, just fifteen kilometers north of Lake Skadar, and the Morača and Ribnica streams cut through its heart. The summer is usually pretty dry, but sea breezes from the rivers cool the city a little, and those who can escape to the coastline will be rewarded with views such as this.
Podgorica is a playground of abandoned areas for the more intrepid travelers. In case you let your feet wander, you might just stumble upon an untouched corner from the city, like this abandoned railroad region.
Take the time to sample some local snacks at one of Podgorica’s many marketplace stalls and get a taste from the Montenegrin way of life. These offerings from Virpazar are about as fresh as it gets.
Before the evening’s revelries, indulge in some austere sightseeing at The Saint George Benedictine monastery, which is located on the small natural island of Sveti Dorde in the Bay of Kotor. This is why, it’s quite stunning.
Seeing as Montenegro’s cooking summers are coming to a close as well as the rainy season is fast getting close to, it’s lucky that the Stadio Malih Sportova is equipped to shelter its audience come rain or shine. For those looking to swing by on Friday, the particular show will be nothing short of spectacular, whatever the weather.
