On the shores of Moraca, there is a monument erected to honour the famous Russian poet, theatre and film actor and writer Vladimir Visotsky, who resided in Podgorica while working on a film for the erstwhile Titograd TV station. He expressed his love for Montenegro in his poem ''For the Montenegrins'', and this is his only monument outside the borders of the former Soviet Union.

This is a powerful monument which speaks volumes about Vladimir Vysotsky. I won't ruin the history lesson for you, you can learn that when you get there, but let me just tell you that this monument has skulls, guitars, and polished stainless steel. You really are getting not only a great piece of art but one of the most vivid projections of testosterone the balkan area has ever seen. Situated next to the river and footbridge, within view of the beautiful millennium bridge, you are basically knee deep in culture here. And the best thing? No tourists anywhere. Wawaweewa!

...but the reflective metallic frame makes for some great pics with the Millennium Bridge in the background :)

Well, the monument itself in my opinion is nothing special, though it still kind of "rocks", but the area where it is built is worth visiting. The statue it just near the Millenium Bridge and the river, so visit one and you will see all of it.

I had to read up about the sculpture afterwards to try and find out what this is about. I am still not very impressed with it. Nice view of the millennium bridge however. I am amazed to read of queues of tourists waiting to view it. Why?

Vysotsky was an immensely popular Russian singer, songwriter, poet and actor. An icon of Russian popular culture opposing the communist Soviet state.

He died in 1980 of excessive alcohol and drug use. Unprofessional medical assistance.influenced by a profiteering entourage contributed to his early death at the age of 42.

All over the post-communist Slavic world you can still find memorials and sometimes small statues of Vysotsky like the one near the Millenium bridge in Podgorica. He got a very prominent place here. For Westerners it is perhaps difficult to understand, but note that only last year Bob Dylan an icon comparable to Vysotsky in the West got the Nobel price for literature....

The park was nice & clean. Love the bridge backdrop! Nothing else much to see there. They need to install more artwork into that park.

Never heard of this Russian singer (don't think a lot of people have) but the statue is nice, just in front of the Millennium bridge.

Vysotsky was a bright star in Soviet Union times. Died from overdose, this person is a true legend with God's gifted talent. He was in Montenegro couple of time back in the 70's.

The Vladimir Vysotsky Monument is located in a small park near the Millennium Bridge, (which crosses the Morača River). The area is completely safe during the day or night for tourists and I was able to take pictures during both periods. The bridge and parks are great for an even stroll.

I stumbled on this monument in a park next to the river as I was trying to find a view of the Millennium bridge. It was a pretty monument that was deserted on teh morning that I visited. It was only afterwards that I read up on the significance of the monument.
