Podgorica ( POD-gorr-ih-ts?; Montenegrin Cyrillic: ?????????, pronounced [p?d?oritsa], lit. "[area] below Gorica [name of a hillock overlooking the city]") is the capital and largest city of Montenegro. In honour of Josip Broz Tito, the city was known as Titograd (Montenegrin Cyrillic: ????????, [tîto?ra?d]) between 1946 and 1992 while Montenegro, as the Socialist Republic of Montenegro, was part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY).
Podgorica's favourable position at the confluence of the Ribnica and Mora?a rivers and the meeting point of the fertile Zeta Plain and Bjelopavli?i Valley has encouraged settlement. The city is close to winter ski centres in the north and seaside resorts on the Adriatic Sea.
The Podgorica Municipality contains 10.4% of Montenegro's territory and 29.9% of its population. It is the administrative centre of Montenegro and its economic, cultural and educational focus.
