Overview

This is an Orthodox church in the foothill of the Gorica hill, built between the 9th and 11th centuries, and it is part of a group of pre-Romanesque monuments. This is also the oldest preserved building in Podgorica. Beneath the altar there is a small subterranean passage, which was believed to have led to Duklja.

The chapel here is often busy on Sundays and saints' days, but if you want to drop in other times for a quiet moment, it's nearly always open. I often stop in on my way to or from Gorica Park.

Church of St. George, which is located at the end of Liberty Street, in the city center, is the ideal place to visit.

Really lovely evening walk, look at the old tombstones, light a candle. Really peaceful setting for reflection. Lovely old church and good to see if you're going to Gorica.
