From historical bridges commissioned by royalty to the huge and spectacular Đurđevića Tara bridge, here are the most beautiful bridges in Montenegro.
Emperor’s bridge is one of the most beautiful bridges in Montenegro. It was designed by Josip Slade, at the request of King Nikola. It was built in 1896 and was the biggest construction project at that time. The bridge was built with the support of Emperor of Russia, Alexander III, after whom the bridge was named.
This elegant, unusual bridge, made of hewn stone, was built by an “Adžija” (Hadzi) during the Ottoman occupation, but exact data about the year of its construction and the hadzi’s name are not known. It’s mysterious, beautiful and there is even a legend that says that nothing can separate a couple that has kissed under the Adžija’s Bridge.
Danilo’s bridge was built in 1853 by Prince Danilo in memory of his mother. Today, this bridge is a romantic and quiet place with a restaurant, beautiful terrace and fishing boats.

This is one of the most romantic places in Podgorica and it’s just 5 minutes walk from the center.
