The Millenium Bridge, Podgorica. Mar 03, 2017
Podgorica's beautiful Millenium Bridge was completed in 2005 this impressive 140 metre long cable-stayed bridge has become the new symbol of Podgorica. We viewed it from the nearby Moskovski Pedestrian Bridge. It is a very impressive structure with its 57 metre high pylon supporting 36 cables. The bridge crosses the stunning Moraca River. Well worth seeing.

On the western side of the Moskovski Pedestrian Bridge there is a statue of Vladimir Vysotsky. He was a Russian poet, singer and actor. He wrote more than 800 songs, many of them political in nature. He died in 1980. This memorial shows him clutching his guitar. A frame surrounds him and near his feet lies a skull.

This supposedly reminds people he acted in Hamlet a few days before his death.

The statue was a gift to Monenegro from Russia. Many Montenegrins are not even familiar with Vysotsky and simple refer to the statue asthe Russian guitarist. Vysotsky visited Montenegro and fell in

love with the country. He even wrote a poem about Montenegro and a line from it is etched into this monument: “I regret in this life that I don't have two roots, and I can't name Montenegro as my second homeland.”
