Gorica Hill Forest Park in Podgorica

 

Discover Gorica, the stunning hill at the heart of Podgorica, which gives the city its name. Our short rental apartments for the day are located just across the Morača River, providing the perfect base for exploring this forest park. Simply cross the Vezir bridge and you’re already on the hill of Gorica, which is not to be missed! Besides short rentals, we have long-term flats & apartments for rent in Podgorica.

Gorica is a popular picnic spot and a true paradise for nature lovers and recreationists alike. The hill is crisscrossed by well-maintained hiking, cycling, and fitness trails that offer stunning views of the city from the top. At the foot of Gorica lies the church of St. Đorđe, which dates back to the 10th century and is the oldest Christian place of worship in Montenegro. The hill itself is also home to a monument to a Partisan fighter, with a mausoleum-like character. The entire complex is built of white stone originating from the area, adding to its charm.

One of the highlights of Gorica is the Mediterranean garden, located on the hilltop. Here, you’ll find an array of Mediterranean trees, medicinal herbs, and fruits, making it a must-visit for botany enthusiasts. In addition, there are sports fields, an open-air gym, and a soccer field with artificial grass located on the hill. At the foot of the hill is the city stadium Budućnost, which is also worth a visit.

 

Gorica Natural Beauty

Beyond its recreational and sporting facilities, Gorica is also renowned for its natural beauty. The hill is abundant with pine trees that emit chemicals called “phytoncides” which help to purify the air. As a result, spending time in this park forest can even have healing properties. Throughout the year, the hill is also home to a diverse array of plant life, making it a real natural, botanical garden.
