Podgorica

— 3 nights
One of Europe's most relaxed and newest capital cities, Podgorica sits on the confluence of two rivers, with two sides of it offering two different options for exploring.
Take a break from the city and head to Lake Skadar and Lovćen National Park. Your inner history buff will appreciate Ostrog Monastery and Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ. Step out of Podgorica with an excursion to Virpazar Stone Bridge in Virpazar--about 32 minutes away. There's more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Dajbabe Monastery.

Discover how to plan a Podgorica trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Podgorica is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Tel Aviv to Podgorica. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Kotor.
