Church of the Holy Heart of Jesus [Crkva Presvetog Srca Isusovog]

Church of the Holy Heart of Jesus
In a suburb east of the centre, Podgorica's Catholic church is an amazing work of modern architecture. Replacing the city centre church that was destroyed in the war, the bold and brutal concrete building was built in 1969 to look like a ship. The facade was never finished, so it looks a bit like a disused factory. From the dark interior, an ingenious 25-metre high tower sticks up, filtering light to illuminate the main altar. There's a 40-metre high freestanding bell tower too, as well as smashing concrete spiral staircases.
