Podgorica's districts

Although small, Podgorica has several distinct districts.
Nova Varoš (New Town) is the modern city centre, a regular grid of streets set between the Morača and Ribnica rivers. This area has the densest concentration of shops, restaurants and nightlife options, and various streets and squares have been pedestrianised or otherwise upgraded in recent years.
Stara Varoš (Old Town), south of the two rivers' confluence, is the city's original old town area, although little remains of the bustle of yesteryear. Ottoman-era landmarks here include the Clock Tower surrounded by a small bazaar, the fortress and two small mosques.
A kilometre west of the city centre, the Novi Grad (New City) district, informally and better known as Preko Morače (Across the Morača), is Podgorica's brand new business district. Originally a residential suburb with uniform highrise apartment buildings, in the last decade it's seen massive investment and now has various new developments including offices, hotels, upmarket restaurants and shops.
Finally, the leafy Pod Goricom (Below the hill) district, curled around Gorica hill east of the city centre, is home to many embassies.
