Between the mountains and the sea, at the crossroads of the East and the West, lives a “Good Spirit of Nikšić“
Nikšić is the second largest city in Montenegro in terms of population (72,443) and the largest municipality with an area of 2.065 km2, comprising 15% of the total country’s area. Located in north-central Montenegro,the city lies at 630 m above sea level. Good transportation links with neighboring countries and proximity to the most important tourist destinations in Montenegro (an hour's drive to the Adriatic Coast or the ski resort of Žabljak) play a vital role in its development.
The town has long tradition and culture. Throughout history, the city of Nikšić repeatedly destroyed, rebuilt, reconstructed, changing its name and appearance. The town’s center is dominated by town square, one of the most beautiful in Montenegro, built in 1885 at the request of King Nikola, with wide streets and boulevards, arranged allies and green areas.
The City of Nikšić is famous for its “sea” - the way the locals usually refer to artificial Lake Krupac. Through the years Krupac was one of the favourite places in the city, and that just improved when the city got its own festival guess where – at the Krupac Lake.
