Shopping in Montenegro


The town markets in Montenegro have a variety of wares such as fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, fish and cheese. Other than food items, the markets abound with inexpensive clothes and household goods. The old town of Herceg Novi's is well known for its art galleries. It is also known for its jewellery shopping. Podgorica, the country's capital, also has a variety of shopping centres and shops selling clothes. Crockery, woodwork and embroidered items found in stores and markets make perfect souvenirs.

Shopping hours in Montenegro are generally Monday to Friday 9 am-9 pm, Saturday 8 am-3 pm (many shops are open all day Saturday). Grocery stores open at 6 am. Shops in tourist resorts often stay open until midnight in high season.


Streets in the centre of Podgorica are filled with boutiques, yet, one should be aware of counterfeited clothes of world famous brands. Most of the premium clothing brands have their stores in new part of the city, chiefly Vectra-Maxim neighbourhoods. The prices are on par with those in the region.

There are a few shopping malls in Podgorica, notably Delta City, a 48,000 sq metre-mall with over 70 stores, food court and a multiplex cinema. There are also smaller malls, such as Palada and Nikić Center.

Podgorica also has all kinds of costumes for recreational games and sports. If you plan to spend time skiing in the north, you'll probably want to shop for some chic, modern ski gear. Elan's outlet in particular is highly favoured by tourists.

At the malls, you'll find some unique book stores with a wide range of foreign titles. Apart from the books, there are also a number of daily and weekly newspapers from home and abroad. You'll also find specialised magazines catering to niche audiences. As for the music, Podgorica is quite familiar with the world music scene and has the latest picks of original titles.

If at all you intend staying for a longer period of time and you're seriously considering the possibility of setting up a home, you'll be glad to find that home appliances are available for pretty nominal costs. Choose from top-notch brands like Bosch, Siemens, Sony and Gorenje. The larger shopping centres in Podgorica offer you a wider range of choices, so you can easily find something that fits your budget.

The business centre of Palada, located on the banks of the Moraca River is a great place to spend time relaxing over a cup of coffee or munching a sandwich. With its glass finish exterior and plush, pleasant interior, it makes for an alluring hangout.

Fervent shoppers love haunting the two major markets of Podgorica – the small market of Mala pijaca in the central part of the town and the market of Tuksi put, at the exit of the town. From fashionable clothing to tools and home appliances, these markets offer quality goods at nominal rates.

If you want to shop for grocery and food, there is a huge green market that has been renovated and has been steadily assuming the proportion of a market mall. Here, you can find fruits, vegetables, fish and domestic cheese. Mala pijaca is also a great place to shop in Podgorica for food items, as are the umpteen super markets dotting the town.

Places like Mex, Carine and Voli are great Podgorica shopping destinations if you're short on time and want to find everything under one roof. They are even cheaper than many of the up-market shops in Podgorica.
