Walking down the streets of Podgorica these days, you may come across some unexpected visitors – Transformers.
Seven sculptures modeled after sci-fi film figures made from scrapped cars, have been dotted round the city, making the capital a more attractive tourist destination.
They are the work of 22-year-old Danilo Baletic, who came up with the idea of transforming scrap metal into fake robots when asked to present an ecological project by the organizers of the Durmitor Art Eco Festival several years ago.
I really didn’t have any expectations of Podgorica, however I was pleasantly surprised by its lively café scene and locals out and about enjoying themselves.
Yes I had to look twice too …
Very enjoyable walking around the city and surrounds.
Sculpture of a different kind.
Walking towards Park Forest Gorica, I could hear chanting fit for a crowd of ten thousand only to find the home team was playing. Football in Podgorica has a long tradition associated with FK Budu nost Podgorica. I understand world-famous players Predrag Mijatovi and Dejan Savi were born in Podgorica and made their debut in the team.
Gorica Park Forest is popular among the citizens and visitors as it’s situated in the very centre of the town.
The Park Forest is next to the ancient church of Sveti Djordje.
Breakfast with a view.
