Sights

For a city formerly known as Titograd (literally ‘Tito City’), there is an inordinate number of royal sculptures dotted around its many parks. The most imposing is the huge bronze statue of Petar I Petrović Njegoš, standing on a black marble plinth on the Cetinje edge of town. A large equestrian statue of Nikola I struts grandly at the head of a lovely park with manicured hedges and mature trees. There’s also a spectacularly cheesy sculpture of Russian singer-songwriter Vladimir Visotsky near the Millennium Bridge, pictured shirtless with a guitar and a skull at his feet. Tito himself is due to make a comeback: in 2018 the city council voted to reerect a statue of the Yugoslav leader in the city which once bore his name.
