Although I've awarded four stars, I do agree with some of the posters here who say it is a) hard to get to, and b) a pile of old stones. However where these "old stones" in the UK I can say with certainty that they...More

Bit out of town but easy to reach by car. However, the sight is not too impressive. Looks like a lot of heaps of stones.

I just spent three weeks living and working at Duklja, the most significant archaeological site in Montenegro. Whether you are interested in Roman history or archaeology, Duklja will remind you not of the importance that this site played as a provincial capital, but also that...More

I walked there on a cold January day which may be part of the reason I felt so underwhelmed when I finally reached the ruins. There are very few signs explaining what the ruins are, and although they are nice enough having been to Rome...More

We couldn't believe this place wasn't a paid attraction, or at least protected! But we spent a whole afternoon here in the sun, taking photos and checking out the incredible old history. Take a local to get the full rundown of the place - but...More

Roman Ruins on a field the size of a soccer field, just outside of Podgorica. I would not have been too overwhelmed, if it hadn't been for the cute goats. There's a nice spot to go swimming in the river close by.

Remains of old town Duklja are located at the confluence of Zeta in Moraca, only 4-5 kilometers from the center of Podgorica. Unfortunately during many wars almost everything was destroyed, just a few of the old walls are preserved in the original.

It's just a walk around the ruins. Some structures are (barely) recognizable. A one way taxi would be around 2-3 Euros, but it might be hard to find one for the way back. If you have a mobile, you can call one, of course... More
