Beach in Podgorica

The rocky Morača riverbank off Stara Varoš serves as Podgorica's main beach, complete with a summertime bar, deckchairs and sun umbrellas. It's a far cry from the sea beaches Montenegro's famous for – and locals sometimes have a bad habit of littering here – but in the middle of a Podgorica heatwave, it's heavenly.
