Old Town and Clock Tower

The Old Town was the core of Podgorica during the Ottoman period (1474-1879) in terms of the city’s urban and architectural forms, customs, way of life, and oriental characteristics. The symbol of the Old Town is the Clock Tower, a building located on Bećir-beg Osmanagić Square. It was built in the 18th century by Hadži Mehmed – paša Osmanagić. A stroll through the cobblestone streets can evoke the spirit of that time, and one can taste traditional specialties in one of the authentic restaurants or cafes, buy souvenirs, or purchase some of the symbols of Podgorica and the Old Town.
