Located at an altitude of 44 m above sea level and situated on the banks of not one, not two, but five rivers—Zeta, Moraca, Ribnica, Cijevna and Sitnica, Podgorica is a colorful bustling town, where you can still walk along a beautiful promenade, or walk its serene parks and spend the day mingling with the colorful local population. Nearby is the well known Scadar Lake, a haven for bird watchers and nature lovers alike. In 1326 Podgorica was named after the hill Gorica, which is in the northern part of the city but it has also been called by other names in the past.
